Folk-rock for the now generation
Folk-rock for the now generation

So you think folk-rock is a bunch of mellow, laid-back dribble? Then you haven't heard Willy Porter. Which means you haven't heard his guitar playing, which is forceful and devastatingly original -- we're talkin' alternate tunings like you wouldn't believe. Here is the kind of guitar he'll be using from now on.

The Guild Willy Porter Signature Model is a combination of old-world guitar building and modern technology, along with some of Porter's own design touches. It's a loud, versatile and road-worthy instrument that doesn't compromise sound and playability; perfect for many different open tunings and perfect for players who want a touch-sensitive guitar with great articulation. Features include a AAA Sitka spruce top, solid flame maple back and sides, Sitka spruce bracing, a bolt-on mahogany neck and patent-pending Guild Graphite Neck Block System, special binding package, bone bridge pins for the bass strings, ebony bridge pins for the treble strings and the Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend pickup system. Available in Blonde, Antique Burst, and Ice Tea Burst (850).

So go rock that wood. List price is 3,299.99 U.S.
