Carvin Guitars has introduced a new seven-string model, the TL70. The guitar, which you can check out in the photo gallery below, features 25.5-inch scale neck-thru construction and is available with a Hipshot-fixed bridge or Floyd Rose tremolo.
The NZ624 takes all the features of the company's popular CT624 24-fret California Carved Top guitar and adds many upgraded options as standard features, including Zaza's preferred single-volume control layout and signature truss rod cover.
Last month, Guitar World kicked off its first transcription challenge — and we picked a good song to set the tone for the monthly contest: Jason Becker's instrumental masterpiece, "Perpetual Burn." The song has been a perpetual source of inspiration (and challenge) for guitarists since it was released in 1988.
Here are some of the videos we've been sent by guitarists who have entered our "Perpetual Burn" Challenge. If you don't know about the challenge, which started early this month, you can find all the info you need right here.
Jason Becker's instrumental masterpiece, "Perpetual Burn," has been a perpetual source of inspiration — and challenge — for guitarists since it was originally released in 1988. In fact, we decided to challenge our own staff, who turned in a spot-on, 17-page transcription of Becker's shred classic in the new July 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine. Now it's time to challenge you!
