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.

Eric's signature guitar is derived from the his original Anniversary model, of similar construction and decoration, it introduces a longer scale length to the instrument giving it a warmer tone and greater volume, power and projection.
