These distincitve guitars are the UK debutants from First Act, a company who are already making considerable waves in the USA. The Boston-based “First Act Studio For Artists’ has built custom instruments for a diverse collection of world-class players, inlcuding Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Serj Tankian (System Of A Down), Al Berry (Avril Lavigne), Nick McCarthey (Franz Ferdinand), Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Richard Fortus (Guns N” Roses), Jimmy Messer (Kelly Clarkson) and Stefan Olsdal (Placebo).
Every First Act guitar is infused with a passion for craftsmanship, design, and sound. Immense care and precision goes into the creation of each instrument, and the result is instruments that are not only intricately beautiful, but exceed the most discriminating standards of artistry, tone, and workmanship.
Lola, Delia and Sheena come in three guises; there’s a funky, minimalist bolt-on neck version, with prices starting at just £149, a drop-dead gorgeous thru-neck (from £299) and, for the connoisseur, a hand- made USA Limited Edition beauty with custom flight-case, (from £1499).
First Act guitars and will be available from all good UK music shops from September 2007.
