Eric Bibb Signature Guitar
The Fylde family embraces many musical styles and touches numerous musicians, from world-renowned performers to people who just love and appreciate the pleasure of playing hand crafted guitars.
A few years ago, Eric Bibb, the American acoustic blues artist discovered the delight to be had from a Fylde when he first tried (then instantly) fell in love with the 30th Anniversary model. "As soon as I picked it up I knew I had to have it. It's perfect for me on stage". Eric now has a total of nine Fylde guitars, often stationed in different parts of the world to meet him while he tours.
