About this deal

In total, Blue Guitars collects no less than 137 songs which themselves are extracted from all the songs Rea wrote for the project. Chinery intended the project to be an homage both to D-Aquisto and to the artistry of the archtop guitar. The project culminated in an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institute (I attended the event) and a corresponding book.

The social and personal problems found their way into the music and started to change the Blues on a profound level. The mahogany body (the original is oak with a mahogany veneer) also features an acoustic chamber that aids resonance at louder volumes as well as making for a lighter weight guitar.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Read more Being a long time Chris Rea fan I eagerly awaited the release of the much talked about piece of work. The natural appearance of the Blue Series is further accentuated by the combination of our semi-matte Open-Pore Finish and fine adornments featuring a walnut rosette and faux tortoise binding and pickguard. Credit is provided by a panel of lenders with whom we have a commercial relationship (so we cannot provide independent advice). Engineered with a decidedly contemporary feel, and considerably less deeply contoured than the somewhat gargantuan proportions of the iconic original, the glued-in mahogany neck sports a generous 45mm nut width, comfortably spacious "D" profile, and wonderfully smooth 24 fret ebony fingerboard.

Being quite obsessive by temperament, Rea had to get to the bottom of this phenomenon so he went out and bought almost every book on the subject extant. audio albums and a DVD comes with a 72-page hardback book including more than 30 paintings, photos, lyrics and an interview with Chris Rea.The BMG definitely has its own unique thing going on – it’s nothing like a Strat, or Les Paul, or SG, or Tele (giving my generation away here). During the process of writing and rehearsing the songs with the band over and over until perfect, Chris still finds time for more. As you'd expect, this guitar is available in red (Antique Cherry) just like Brian's own guitar but there are other options if you hanker for the design and tones but not this colour. For every lover of good music and for all guitar aficionados in particular, Blue Guitars is an absolute must. I had no idea that he'd released this incredible blues project along with other great blues albums such as "Dancing Down the Stony Road".
