    I managed to catch Nick Lowe and his Quality Holiday Review at The Ark in Ann Arbor this week. What a great show! Nick played a short acoustic set and was then joined on stage by the fabulous surf-guitar band Los Straitjackets. While you might find this to be an incongruous mashup, especially given the mexican wrestling masks, it worked perfectly. They added a retro-modern shimmer to the whole show. Despite my concerns that a "Holiday Revue" would mean a lot of cliché'd christmas songs, the set was a great blend of classic Nick Lowe, more recent works, instrumentals by Los…

  • Peavey T-40 Bass - Vintage American-made Coolness

    Guitar Blog
    15 Dec 2014 | 2:43 pm
    guitarz.blogspot.com: In more recent times you could pick up one of these all American-made high quality 1970s Peavey guitars or basses for a mere song. I mean why buy a Squier if you can get something as well-made and playable as this, often for less cash, and with that coolness factor that it's a little bit different from what everyone else is playing, a little bit retro. I mean, this Peavey T-40 is an absolute beaut... with a volume and tone for each of the two pickups, you're not going to get the same variety of sounds out of a bog-standard P or J Bass. But I think maybe the tide has…

  • S.F. Sorrow - The First Rock Opera

    Zack Urlocker
    8 Oct 2014 | 7:55 pm
    If you ask most people to name a rock opera, they'll probably come up with "Tommy" and not much else. Until recently, I had assumed The Who's "Tommy" was not only the definitive rock opera but also the first.  But as I learned listening to the public radio show SoundOpinions, Pete Townshend was beat out by a year with a release of the album "S.F. Sorrow" by the UK band The Pretty Things. The Pretty Things started out as a typical UK R&B band with a claim to fame of being hairier, dirtier and raunchier than The Rolling Stones. The Pretty…

    It's been a few months since I saw legendary garage rock band The Cynics in Cleveland and I was reminded that I still had an interview with lead singer and songwriter Michael Kastelic in the can. So apologies for the delay, here's the interview... Q. When I listen to your back catalog, there's a significant evolution in the sound of The Cynics. What were some of your early influences? For me personally it's different than for the band. For the band, the influences were the garage 60s stuff on the back from the grave label, like the pebbles. Gregg was always a…
  • X - Live in New York City

    Zack Urlocker
    8 Sep 2014 | 6:31 am
    The seminal '80s punk band X is playing 4 nights at the City Winery in New York as well as touring other major cities. I had the good fortune of being in town and catching the opening night during which they played their debut album "Los Angeles" in its entirety. Punk rock being what it is, that's a fairly short album, so they came back for another full set of songs from later periods of their career and then a final encore.   While I was a huge fan of late '70s / early '80s punk and new wave from New York and the UK, I never really got into the LA…

Whether you’ve decided to purchase your first electric guitar or you are making the switch from an acoustic, it can be overwhelming to choose from the many guitar brands and models out there.

  • Klira electro-acoustic vintage German-made guitar

    9 Dec 2014 | 12:47 pm
    guitarz.blogspot.com: To continue a recent theme of mine on here, namely obscure vintage "junk shop" acoustic guitars that look as if they've had aftermarket electrics added to them but were actually produced that way in the factory... This one is a German Klira guitar. Note the primitive-looking blade-style pickup has been mounted near to the bridge rather than in the more usual soundhole location. Currently listed on eBay with a (possibly) optimistic Buy It Now price tag of €450. G L Wilson© 2014, Guitarz - The Original Guitar Blog - the blog that goes all the way to 11!Please read…
  • ESP LTD Lion guitar - a beautiful and unashamed objet d'art

    guitarz.blogspot.com: I saw this picture on Facebook earlier today. It's a creation of the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. The Facebook post was accompanined by all the predictable "How on Earth do you play that?" comments, all of which are quite obviously missing the point. You don't play it, it's a work of art.It's a similar situation to artist Yoshihiko Satoh's "Present Arms" art pieces (12-necked Stratocasters!); a lot of these photos have been doing the rounds again virally on Facebook et al, with most commenters simply not understanding that whilst these are technically functional pieces, you…
  • Teisco 1968 Crescendo - White - Made in Japan

    30 Nov 2014 | 1:33 am
    guitarz.blogspot.com: We've posted many Teardrop shaped guitars over the years and they are among my favourite designs and this Teisco Crescendo is no exception. With two Teisco pickups and a hollow body, I'm sure it has a distinctive tone. I like the look of the tremolo and the little nick out of the scratchplate. Very stylish.The seller has this to say...This a Teisco Crescendo 'Teardrop' style guitar dating back to 1968, made in Japan. The guitar is in very good condition, given its age, with a few knocks and scratches the note. The main mark to note is a long hairline crack in…
  • Orfeus vintage electric-acoustic guitar from Soviet-era Bulgaria

    27 Nov 2014 | 6:33 am
    guitarz.blogspot.com: This Orfeus electric-acoustic is a guitar in a very similar vein to the Russian guitar we looked at in the previous post. Like that other guitar, the Bulgarian-made Orfeus (circa 1970s) looks for all the world as if it is an old acustic guitar that has been latterly modified by someone into an electric guitar. However, there are various indicators that it was created this way back in the factory, the most compelling of which is the correct Orfeus pickup mounted in the soundhole bracket (which you'll notice is painted in the same finish as the rest of the guitar - another…

Rather than ordering something specific from the menu, you leave it up to the chef to surprise (and delight) […]

    As you can see Music Man Guitars have announced a new guitar for 2015 under their budget line Sterling By Music Man. The JP170D in Ruby Redburst is a 7 string version of the John Petrucci model – the JP100D. You may wonder what is the difference between the Sterling JP70 and the JP170D so let me just quickly outline the differences. So yes there are already 3 existing John Petrucci signature model guitars in the Sterling by Music Man range, the JP60, JP70 and JP100D. The JP60 being the most basic 6 string model, the JP70 being the 7 string version of the JP60 and then the JP100D which…

    I have been watching the Rush Clockwork Angels video...and his tone straight up sucks. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the pickups are lacking, even after all the processing. Extremely thin in the middle and high end is lacking, too. Typical LP humbucker boom in the low end, but the top end doesn't pierce the way it should, the middle sounds out of balance. Sounds like shit, actually. He should have stuck with PRS, imo. @Lerxst , what say you? Sounds fucking... Since Alex Lifeson has switched to Gibson, his sound is f'ing awful.

    By: Brad Conroy The Petar Jankovic Ensemble (PJE) is no stranger to the pages of Guitar International, and has recently released a follow up to their highly acclaimed debut, From Spain to Tango. (Com)Passionate, the sophomore effort by PJE is a masterful recording which features a new dynamic, atmosphere, and more mature context for the group. (Com)Passionate showcases the PJE within a true chamber music setting, a role that has rarely ever been achieved on the classical guitar. The repertoire on this recording goes far beyond what has been for so long associated with the classical guitar,…

    I can see you there, hovering behind your screen with that look of “are you serious?!” plastered all over your sceptical face. Yes… left handed guitar picks are a thing! Wait..didn’t you know that? Timber Tones, those purveyors of all things exotic when it comes to guitar picks have just released a line of left handed plectrums – Lefty Tones!

  • How To Safely Pack And Ship A Guitar

    Neal
    16 Dec 2014 | 12:17 am
    Selling a guitar is the easy part; making sure it’s adequately packaged to ensure safe transit is where you’ll need to be careful.  As long as you take the proper precautions and pack your guitar properly you can greatly decrease the chances of it turning up at your buyer’s home in more than one piece! These methods are by no-means foolproof but they will certainly go a long way in helping to prevent potential damage. Keep Your Packing Materials! First off let me say this: ALWAYS keep any packaging material you receive in the mail.  Whenever I take delivery of a guitar I…
  • Importing a Guitar – Is It Worth The Hassle?

    Neal
    9 Dec 2014 | 1:38 am
    From time to time, importing can look like an attractive option when you find a guitar that you absolutely must have.  As a left handed player with an already limited selection it can be incredibly difficult to pass up something nice when it enters your radar! This article looks at the process of importing guitars internationally and the costs involved from the perspective of a UK buyer. Let’s face it, left handed players residing in the USA have a slightly easier time obtaining guitars than the rest of the world – and the prices are usually much better to boot!  I’m sure there…
  • Which Guitar Fretboard Wood Is Right For You?

    Neal
    6 Dec 2014 | 5:20 am
    The various woods which come together to assemble your guitar all have an impact on the overall tone produced.  Players will often concentrate on the woods used in the body, and to a lesser extent the neck when trying to define the sound produced by their guitar.  But just as important as the body and neck composition is the wood used for the fingerboard… The fingerboard may not play as large a role as the body wood in defining your sound, but it certainly will have an effect on it.  And not just in terms of tone produced – the fingerboard will also affect the feel of your guitar…

Tom Morello’s sound effects and riffs, Matt Belamy’s melodic soloing and chord work and Eric Johnson’s tone and endless scalar lines are just a few fine examples of players who have nurtured, explored and brought their own unique sound to the instrument… But how do you know what your thing is?

I’m also big on improvisation so being told what to play or having to play a set solo kind of irritates me but it can be a valuable learning experience. What's more, if you're thinking about turning pro then versatility can often make or break your career. We’ll look at this on…

I’m not a huge fan of the CAGED system, in fact, I think it’s crap and takes far too long to become useful, if indeed it ever does, which I’ve written extensively about here.

    6 Nov 2014 | 4:10 pm
    ‘Feel’ gets talked about a lot in musician’s circles with certain players being deemed to have more of it than others. Sometimes feel gets mistaken for a lack of technique and very technical players are thought to have less or no feel, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Kurt Cobain certainly had a lot of feel as do John Scofield, John Frusciante and many others. At the end of the day I think it’s one of those personal things, and any guitarist that moves you must be playing with feel to have reached you on an emotional level. Before you can develop feel…
