FRET-KING ECLAT 'DBC' DAVE 'BUCKET' COLWELL
"The way the Eclat DBC guitar rings, even acoustically, is just incredible. I love P90 pickups and I have done ever since I saw Steve Marriott and Mick Ralphs using them so the Fret-KIng W90B is the business. The thumb scoop is a great idea too, and it allows me easy access to those high frets, even when the guitar is slung really low. The DBC is exactly what it says it is a pure rock 'n' roll guitar, and I'm pure rock 'n' roll; I love it!"
A hard working and hard playing rock guitar-meister, Bucket's talents have seen him playing to thousands of fans across the globe in his tenures with Paul Rodgers' Bad Company, and working with the likes of Humble Pie. A songwriter of note too, his tracks have been covered by no less than the likes of Iron Maiden, and his Bucket & Co. project cooperated with the likes of Steve Conte, Edwin McCain, Danny Bowes, Spike from The Quireboys, Jaz Lochrie and Adrian Smith.
The DBC is a no-fuss rock machine inspired by a workhorse instrument Bucket has played for years. With its no-nonsense single Fret-King W90 `Dog ear' pickup, wrapover combined bridge/tailpiece and its innovative thumb-scoop for great upper fret access, the DBC is a one-stop attitude machine. Strap it on, feel the culmination of 50 years of guitar history rolled in to one and enjoy monster tone, monster fun and all out rock `n' roll.
