Dave Navarro 'heavily involved in design of Epiphone acoustic guitar'
Jane's Addiction star Dave Navarro has said he played a key role in the creation of his new signature Epiphone acoustic guitar.
The American guitarist told the Gibson website he was involved in detailed discussions over the appearance, playability and technology of the model.
"I had to be on the phone with Epiphone to talk about what my needs were and the look and feel of the instrument," Navarro explained.
In terms of the guitar's aesthetics, the 43-year-old Californian said he deliberately opted to design the acoustic in black because he is famous for playing white electric guitars on stage.
He said he "felt like this time I wanted to do something that was contrary to that".
Navarro, whose eventful career includes a five-year stint in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is currently working on the new Jane's Addiction album.
Due for release next year, it will be the group's first studio effort since Strays in 2003.
