..............The Blue Magnet


............Click to view close-up



The 'Blue Magnet' is a one-of-a-kind model, which has been specially designed and custom-built to the specifications of Blues Icon, Mr. Blue of Switzerland using the finest quality tone woods. Some of the outstanding features of the 'Blue Magnet' include AAAA grade quilted maple top, finished in a gorgeous transparent blue, with maximum grain enhancement. The spectacular upper horn design and equally striking headstock, based on a copyrighted concept by Mr. Blue, enhance the beauty of this extraordinary instrument, while the EMG Active Pickups complete the package.

If you can dream it, I can design and build it! You can hear this Blues Powerhouse on the CD "Blues Dancer" by Mr. Blue & the Tight Groove.
