I recently made some hand-to-neck contact with Steve Howe's famous 1964 Gibson ES-175. He brought it with him when he visited Guitar World for a photo shoot and a "Dear Guitar Hero" feature -- which you'll see soon in the pages of Guitar World magazine.
Dave Mustaine has ruled the ranks of Megadeth for the better part of 28 years. Check out Guitar World's photo gallery of the musicians who have been a part, large or small, of one of thrash's finest outfits.
Stevie Ray Vaughan was an American blues guitarist who came to prominence in the early Eighties. He released a string of successful albums throughout the decade with his band, Double Trouble. An innovator of Texas blues, Vaughan almost single-handedly commercialized the genre with the release of his debut, Texas Flood, in 1983.
