OCT. 27 I REUNION BLUES I WEB NEWS
Earlier this year, Reunion Blues released a video on YouTube of a new RB Continental case being tossed off a three-story building with a guitar inside. After two throws, the instrument emerged unscathed.
According Reunion Blues executives, the video drew numerous comments from doubting guitarists who dared the company to try the stunt again with a tilt-back headstock guitar.
“We didn’t think much of these comments at first,” said Alan Poster, owner of Reunion Blues. “But they kept coming in until, after passing tens of thousands of views, we decided to accept the challenge.”
According to John Maher, Reunion Blues marketing director, many three-on-a-side, tilt-back headstocks are glued to the neck at an angle, creating the potential for the peghead to snap off at this junction when hit hard.
“So, in an attempt to satisfy the skeptics, we decided to get our hands on a tilt-back-designed guitar and do it all over again,” Maher said.
