Rob Ickes accepting orders for signature resophonic guitar

We posted in late March about the newly-announced Rob Ickes signature model resophonic guitar manufactured and marketed as a joint venture by Scheerhorn and Wechter Guitars.

The new model is a replica of Rob’s unique custom Scheerhorn, with the bodies and necks made in China, and then assembled with Scheerhorn components at the Wechter shop in Michigan. Unlike the heralded Scheerhorns, however, these new Ickes guitars sell for only $1500, and can be had without the wait of up to several years typical of their big brothers.

Rob has been playing one at most Blue Highway shows since he received the prototype in March, and reports that it sounds great and handles beautifully.

More details are available on Rob’s web site, where you can also place an order for one of the guitars.
