Rex Brown Signature Model Announced by Prestige Guitars Ltd.

Prestige Guitars Ltd. is proud to announce they have teamed up with rock legend Rex Brown to design and release Rex’s first Signature Model 6-string guitar at Winter NAMM 2017 in Anaheim CA.

Rex Brown is an American musician and author, best known as founding member of and longtime bassist for the Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling group, Pantera (1982-2003). He is a former member of the band Down (2003-2011) and is currently the bassist for Kill Devil Hill. He is now heading up his first major solo project - The Rex Brown Band. The Rex Brown Band album is set for release in May 2017 and features Rex on guitar, bass, and lead vocals.

The Rex Brown Signature Model is a single-cutaway solidbody, designed in direct collaboration with Rex and to his exacting “dream guitar” specs. In creating the 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 punchy but not too bright, we went with a rosewood fretboard and we put Rex’s very personal touch on the fretboard 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 with custom relic’d covers created by the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. This guitar perfectly embodies Rex’s playing style and sound, and oozes rock 'n' roll styling. The Rex Brown Signature Model will be priced at $1,349 street, and will come with a deluxe custom hard case and full lifetime warranty.
