Roger Waters signs signature series guitar deal
Floyd co-founder will play the new Washburn model during tour

Guitar manufacturer Washburn will produce a signature series electric-acoustic guitar bearing the name of Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters. Waters, who has played a Washburn RR300 for two years, will play his namesake RW300 on his upcoming "In the Flesh" world tour.

The RW300 features a chambered mahogany body and solid spruce top, a Seymour Duncan P90 style pickup, and a Fishman pre-amp with a piezo bridge.

Waters is primarily a bassist, though played a good deal of acoustic guitar during the first two legs of his "In the Flesh" tour of North America in 1999 and 2000.
