January 23, 2013, 2 years ago
Texas progressive instrumentalists SCALE THE SUMMIT have revealed guitarist Chris Letchford's Signature Strandberg BODEN CL7 guitar. The production-series guitar was designed to Letchford's exact specifications and is currently available for sale through Strandbergguitars.com.
Letchford will promote the guitar by making several appearances at the upcoming NAMM festival, including signings at the Strandberg, Jackson and EMG Pickups booths - the latter of which will also feature bassist Mark Michell, who will be promoting the release of his new instructional book for right-hand bass techniques.
In other Scale The Summit news, the group recently finished recording their upcoming release, The Migration, with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, HE IS LEGEND, FOR TODAY) at Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, N.C. The album, tentatively set for a late spring/early summer release, will be the band's third album through Prosthetic and the follow-up to their 2011 release, The Collective.
Over the past four years, Scale The Summit has toured alongside some of progressive metal's top acts, including DREAM THEATER, PERIPHERY, THE CONTORTIONIST, PROTEST THE HERO, CYNIC, DEVIN TOWNSEND and BTBAM. Look for spring/summer tour information to be announced in the coming weeks.
