The Fine Art of the Sequel Album

Peter Hodgson

02.14.2014

Comments
In a lot of ways, a good album is like a movie: it should have a beginning, a middle and an end. It should take you on a journey. You should learn something about the main character that you didn’t know before you started. The main character should learn something about themselves too. And it should leave you wanting more.

Pure Bypass: The Sonic Expressway

02.14.2014

|
Comments
When you want the ultimate in sonic purity, there’s no more direct path than sending your pickup output directly to the guitar’s output jack, without any intervening tone or volume controls to influence the pickup’s inherent sound. And that’s exactly what the Pure Bypass function does—it sends your bridge pickup output directly to the guitar output, thanks to a push switch on the bridge pickup tone control. It’s that simple.

1961 Humbucker: A Classic Reborn

02.13.2014

|
Comments
The 1961 Humbucker is part of the Burstbucker family, which features offset coils—of the two humbucker coils, one has more windings than the other. With typical Burstbuckers the slug coil has a few hundred more turns than the screw coil, so the slug coil sound tends to dominate; this gives a bit more of a single coil character.

Phase Switch: Quick Change Tonality

02.13.2014

Comments
Guitars are all about tone—and the more tonal versatility, the better. The Les Paul Standard, Les Paul Standard Plus, and Les Paul Premium Quilt have a phase reverse push switch on the neck pickup tone control that adds yet another level of sonic versatility.

Coil Splits: Single-Coil Sounds with Humbuckers

02.13.2014

|
Comments
A guitar’s pickups and electronics have a huge influence on its basic tone, as well as what the guitar will sound like through effects. Single-coil pickups have a brighter, thinner sound compared to humbuckers, which sound warmer and thicker—but there’s more to the story than that.

Orange Drop Capacitors: Own Your Tone

02.13.2014

|
Comments
Some of Gibson’s 2014 model year guitars use Orange Drop capacitors, and there’s a very good reason why Gibson chose them. It’s a misconception that all capacitors with the same value are the same; not only can capacitor values vary as they come off the assembly line, capacitance can also vary with frequency, applied voltage, and temperature.

Standardized Headstock: Control Your Tuning Choices

02.13.2014

|
Comments
Min-ETune™ automatic tuning is not without controversy; some people love it, and some people don’t (that is, until they use Min-ETune™ for a while and get hooked on the convenience, speed, and accuracy). Of course, Min-ETune™ already lets you do manual tuning as well as automatic tuning, but some guitar players prefer particular manual tuners the same way they prefer particular pickups.

The 2014 model year guitars ship with coated strings—but we’re not talking about the funky plastic sheaths you might think of when you hear “coated strings.”

120th Anniversary Inlay: Once in a Lifetime—Literally

02.13.2014

|
Comments
The quality that goes into Gibson guitars is one reason why they’re prized by both players and collectors. Unlike cars, Gibsons don’t lose 30% of their value the minute they leave the store—and not only do Gibsons hold their value, over the years their value actually tends to appreciate.
