As the holidays — and some much-needed time off — swiftly approach, I present to you my holiday gear wish list, all of which I hope Santa will be kind enough to leave under my tree. I know certain items on my wish list are somewhat pricey, but hey, that’s why I call it a wish list! Even so, if I don’t get it all, just receiving one will give me holiday cheer well into 2014.
PRS Guitars has announced a new model, the P24 Trem. It's a 24-fret piezo-equipped solidbody electric guitar that effortlessly achieves classic humbucker tones and authentic acoustic sounds in one instrument.
If you look toward your mantle this holiday season and notice that your stocking overfloweth, you can thank me next year for maybe half the items you’ll find in it. It took me some time to compile a list of gear I believe will delight many guitarists but that also includes essential tools they’ll need or could use the most.
This week, we're checking out the new Route 66 Modern model by Monoprice guitars. You might remember my review — posted last summer — of one of the company's California Series models. You’ll instantly notice similarities between the Route 66 Modern and another iconic guitar design, but Monoprice found a way to offer the sound, look and feel of that model for less than $150.
Electro-Harmonix has announced the latest addition to its range of overdrive and distortion pedals: the Soul Food. This transparent overdrive can fatten a guitarist’s tone in all the right places without compromising or changing it.
