The Rex Brown Custom Signature Model is a single cutaway solid body, designed in direct collaboration with Rex and to his exacting “dream guitar” specs. In creating the this model, we incorporated Rex’s deep appreciation for vintage tone and feel, while bringing the best modern components offered to ensure that this beast would be able to capture his distinct voice both in the studio and on the road. The “REX” boasts a killer combo of a carved Maple top and solid Mahogany body and neck. This guitar is finished in matte black with cream 3 ply binding surrounding the body, neck and headstock. In order to keep this guitar sounding bright and punchy, we went with a Pau Ferro fingerboard and we put Rex’s very personal touch on the fingerboard with a Custom Skull Inlay designed directly from a ring he wears day-to-day . Custom relic’d nickel hardware includes TonePros locking bridge and saddle, Grover Mini-Locking Rotomatic Tuners and nickel knurled knobs. We completed this beast with the perfect voice for this truly badass signature guitar; a pair of Seymour Duncan “Saturday Night Special” Humbucker pickups.
