Farida A-SR Steve Rothery In Selected Stores Now
The Farida A-SR Steve Rothery Artist Designed guitar is now in stock at selected Dawsons Stores
The Farida A-SR Steve Rothery has landed, and some of the small number we still have available of this highly limited guitar have made their way to some of our bigger stores. The Artist Designed range is a range of guitars produced by Farida in collaboration with highly respected musical artists. The premise was fairly simple: allow the artist to present their concept of a ‘no-compromise’ dream guitar, and allow the master craftsman at Farida to make it a reality. A highly limited number of instruments (25, in fact) would then be produced, and sold to some very lucky people.
So far, we’ve seen the stunning Farida J-FT Frank Turner acoustic guitar, and this, the second in the series: the Farida A-SR Steve Rothery. His position as the guitarist within legendary UK rock band, Marillion has seen Steve become a player of international renown. With decades of playing experience at the highest level, and millions of records sold, it stands to reason that he has played a huge number of the World’s finest acoustic guitars. This meant that Steve had a very clear vision of what he wanted, and what a stunning creation it is…
A small number of the remaining guitars have made their way into our bigger stores, so you can hear for yourself why the guys at Farida are hailing this as one of their finest moments…
Classic Rosewood and Spruce construction, with Fishman Ellipse Blend pre-amp
The Farida A-SR Steve Rothery is built around a small ‘A’ style body, with single cutaway, constructed with a spruce top and beautiful rosewood back and sides. A Celtic knot logo features on the headstock, but other than that, the guitar is very understated, with just a simple abalone rosette, and elegant, mini-dot inlays. A Fishman Ellipse Blend preamp ensures that this is a superb, players’ guitar both acoustically and when amplified.
The guys and gals at our Leeds store have been bowled over by the Farida A-SR, and are keen for people to see why this limited edition guitar is so special. With just a single guitar in stock at Leeds, numbered 24 (of 25- all pictures above are of the guitar at Leeds), you’ll have to be swift…
