The Guitar Magazine Reviews


"A new design that’s a potential world-beater...extraordinarily confident and tasteful...Even by the standards of the modern boutique market, the Signature Model is something special…Held notes hang in the air and bloom in a manner you rarely encounter when playing a box-fresh electric…made possible by Frank Brothers’ uncompromising approach to design, timbers, parts and build.”


“Instruments as good as this have a habit of stopping time. Sure, there’s extraordinary clarity and precision, notes are complex, there are bags of sustain…But its most hypnotic characteristic is the way in which it encourages you to step outside of the familiar. In the world of the Frank Brothers Guitar Company, the phrase ‘more or less standard’ translates as ‘earth-shatteringly cool’



“I think they might have nailed it. In my personal taste and opinion they’ve built this really classic looking instrument that sounds incredible….really really really well feels classic already.”

"The guitar is simply amazing - you guys did a fantastic job and I simply love the guitar - I can go to the neck pickup and roll back the tone half way and I am totally in perfect Jazz territory with softness and single note clarity for melody lines. Go to 2 pick ups and the highs shimmer. Finally, stomp on the Benson preamp with both pick ups going full tone and full volume, and boom - blues and rock totally bloom out of the guitar. It is an amazing guitar. Tell the it."

- Francisco A. - Arlington, Virginia - Signature Model
