The Commemorative Charlie Christian Collection

Charlie Christian was born on July 29, 1916. In the year 2016 we celebrate the 100th birthday of the pioneer of electric guitar and a key figure in the development of bebop and cool jazz. The electric guitar tone that Christian developed in the late 1930s and early forties with the Benny Goodman Sextet and Orchestra remains the classic "jazz guitar sound" to the present.
Guitar maker Daniel Slaman will contribute with some special New Vintage guitars in the Commemorative Charlie Christian Collection, inspired by the the pre-war vintage guitars that Charlie played. Total number of Commemorative Charlie Christian instruments will be limited to eleven (11) guitars.
