Guitar Shop TV recently sat down with legendary guitarist, songwriter, and producer Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) who talks about his Rockbridge guitar and his latest project Super Heavy, an exciting new fusion-reggae-Indian-blues supergroup that includes Stewart, Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, and A.R. Rahman. A Golden Globe and 4-time Grammy Award winner, Dave has also enjoyed years of incredible groundbreaking success with artists such as Tom Petty, Bono, Bob Dylan, No Doubt, and many others.
Dave played an great un-named “undercover” tune for us on his Rockbridge guitar, accompanied by violinist extraordinaire Ann-Marie Calhoun…Check out our exclusive interview with Dave and cool performance in our video above:
Rockbridge Guitars are rare and exquisite instruments indeed, with incredible tonality and design. A well-kept secret, Rockbridge is a three-man custom shop that produces a small number of high-end, handcrafted guitars every year. Their building philosophy, which includes a painstaking attention to detail, makes every Rockbridge Guitar a beautiful instrument with exceptional tone. Rockbridge prides itself in quality not quantity, and is proud that even though its production is limited to around 40 guitars a year, its customers include both world-famous artists and amateur players of all styles and abilities. In addition to Dave Stewart, prominent Rockbridge players include: Dave Matthews, Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), legendary session guitarist Waddy Wachtell (Keith Richards, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne), Ben Harper, Mick Jagger and many others.
