Thomas Fekete of Surfer Blood stops by Chicago Music Exchange

Guitarist Thomas Fekete of Surfer Blood stopped in after a last minute gig at Schubas during the always-amazing Tomorrow never Knows festival. They just finished recording their new full length which we're really excited to hear. Their debut single "Swim" was the 37th best track on Pitchfork's 100 Best Songs of 2009 and Astro Coast, their debut album, was amazing. They are about to head out on a West Coast tour in February.

Thomas was enamored by our Gibson Futura and had to have it. We're hoping we see it out on the road as his new #1.

In production for only 2 years, the Gibson Futura is an upscale version of the similar Corvus model that features a neck-through-body construction with 2 screaming humbuckers. The incredibly unique body design and very cool ultraviolet finish still makes this guitar look like it's from future.
