Steve Lukather is one of the most prolific session guitarists of the past 30 years.
During that time, he’s held down gigs with Toto and Ringo Starr while contributing guitar work to more than 1,500 records. To date, Ernie Ball Music Man has produced three Luke Signature Series guitars for Lukather.
The newest incarnation is the LK100D from Sterling By Music Man, created as a mid-priced offering based on the Ernie Ball Music Man LIII. While this is certainly an affordable guitar, its quality, unique tone and playability might make it the first choice for Luke buyers of all budget levels.
When Alice in Chains’ video for “Man in the Box” began airing on MTV in 1991, astute guitar players took note of Jerry Cantrell and his single-humbucker G&L Rampage. His deft musicianship and menacing guitar work helped bridge the gap between Eighties shred virtuosity and the grunge-era’s punk-influenced raw aggression.
Not too long ago, if you were shopping for a multieffect floorboard you were limited to a choice of affordable models with semi-pro-quality effects and moderately rugged construction or prohibitively expensive units with pro effects and tour-worthy durability.
It’s been about five years since Vox introduced the 15-watt Night Train amp head, a diminutive lunch-box-format mini amp that packs an impressive punch.
An upgrade of the previous NT50H head, the Night Train NT50H-G2 is the most powerful, gig-worthy and versatile Vox Night Train amp to date, providing several new features like digital reverb, an XLR speaker-emulated DI jack and more performance-friendly functionality than its predecessor.
