DEVIN TOWNSEND Talks About His New Framus Mayfield Custom Guitar (Video)
Video footage of renowned Canadian multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer Devin Townsend talking about his new Framus Mayfield custom guitar can be seen below. It’s a 6-string set-neck instrument with maple neck, tigerstripe ebony fretboard with special light-up Ziltoid inlays, flamed maple top on a mahogany body and active EMG DTP pickups.
Devin Townsend played a special concert October 27, 2012 at the Roundhouse venue in London, England as part of a one-night-only event, dubbed “The Retinal Circus”, that was recorded for both DVD and Blu-ray, and was released on October 29, 2013 in North America (Sepember 30 in Europe) via InsideOut Music.
“The Retinal Circus” was released on several formats, including a lavish and bonkers limited edition befitting of the man himself, and which took months of hard work to put together.
Devin previously described “The Retinal Circus” as “a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a ‘circus’ of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other.”
