Whether you know him as the "Wichita Lineman" or a "Rhinestone Cowboy," it's obvious that Glen Campbell is one of the finest country musicians to ever hit the Nashville scene. Both as a singer and guitar picker, Campbell has earned a well-deserved reputation for his classic discography featuring hits like "Gentle On My Mind," "Galveston" and "Southern Nights." Rock N Roll Relics owner and Glen Campbell fan Billy Rowe recently set about creating the singer's first signature guitar ever. Inspired by Campbell's consummate guitar work, the "Country Boy" model is set to be exhibited at Vintage King Nashville on October 21st, following an exclusive showing of a new documentary about his life entitled Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
Despite being diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 2011, Campbell put together a hugely successful "Goodbye Tour," which is the basis for the new film. In honor of the movie's release, Billy Rowe has created a limited quantity of 25 "Country Boy" guitars, each of which has been signed by Glen himself and features a certificate of authenticity. As for the guitar itself, it is a beautiful piece of artwork that follows suits with Rock N Roll Relics other six-stringed masterpieces. It features a light weight Alder body, maple neck and fingerboard, streel trem block bridge and David Allen pickups, which are emblazoned with "Country Boy." The guitar's body is painted a Sonic Blue, that is reminiscent of the guitars that Glen Campbell used throughout the later part of his career.
On October 21st, Vintage King Nashville is fortunate to be hosting an exhibition of Rock N Roll Relic's "Country Boy," featuring a visit from Glen's son, Shannon Campbell. In addition to talking about his guitar playing career on his father's "Goodbye Tour," Shannon will show off the brand new guitar from Billy Rowe.
