Raven West is pleased to announce the addition of the new LIMITED EDITION BILL MacKECHNIE SIGNATURE RM300MAC!
Anyone who has heard the Arabic Frenzy of ANUBIS SPIRE'S fret melting "So Be It," or the wailing, haunting bends of "Walking The Wire," knows that their reclusive guitarist, Bill MacKechnie, has a style and unique approach to the instrument that sets him apart from the rest. For the last two decades, his guitar work and compositions have graced numerous musical projects, film soundtracks and video documentaries. Bill has been an RWG user since the beginning of the company, and his current favorite is our RM300DX, so when we asked him to tell us exactly what his dream guitar would be, here's what he said: " The 300DX is already a dream come true for me and honestly, I don't think it could be made any better in the general sense, but I do have some personal preferences in certain areas that would be great to have on one!" The Bill MacKechnie SIGNATURE is the culmination of those desires.
As per Bill's request, we started with a MAHOGANY body and added a 3/4" solid MAPLE cap for the ultimate in sustain and bite. We married the body to a ONE PIECE, LONG TENON Mahogany neck with a beefy, vintage non-tapered neck thickness (Bill has large hands), a medium wide, bound Phenolic fingerboard with an ABALONE VINE inlay, medium jumbo frets and a super bending-friendly 16" radius. The highly flamed MAPLE top is finished in NATURAL maple with a high gloss and ABALONE body purfling. The black chrome genuine G&B pickups are vintage voiced, meter out at 8.65K and are perfect for blues and rock. Adjustable bridge, stop tailpiece and GROVER tuners in black chrome complete the incredible look of this great limited edition.
Get yours before they are all gone!
