The Magic of ’59 and the '59 Tribute Humbucker

Peter Hodgson

01.30.2014

Comments
1959 was an important year for Gibson - and indeed for guitar fans all over. It was the year that the Les Paul Standard really came into its own. It's mind-blowing to think just how few sunburst Les Paul Standards were actually made that year (actual figures are hard to come by and the matter is confused by the number of 'conversions' of other Les Pauls to '59-style specs later, but let's just say there aren't thousands of them out there).

It’s a new year, and with that comes a whole bunch of great tours to look forward to during the next twelve months. Veterans like Metallica, and Aerosmith will be on the road, as well as more current acts like Paramore and Halestorm. Since U2 will be coming out with a new album later this year, can we also assume a new tour is in the works? Wishful thinking, I know. Instead let’s take a look at some of the cool tours that have been confirmed for 2014 so far!

Pete Seeger: In Memoriam, Gibson’s Classic Interview with the Folk Legend

“He's had one of the most perfect lives of anybody I know.” That's how filmmaker Jim Brown once described Pete Seeger, when asked why he decided to profile Seeger for a PBS “American Masters” documentary. Seeger, who passed away yesterday (Jan. 27) at age 94, certainly experienced one of the great artistic journeys in American culture. In a career that spanned three quarters of a century, he also embodied the idealism that once defined the American spirit.

Your Guitar’s Nuts — A Small Part With A Big Influence

Comments
The nut is one of the smaller parts of the guitar, but it has a big impact on how an instrument sounds and plays. That’s why Gibson has begun using TekToid™ graphite nuts on all of the guitars it builds. Graphite is the best high-tech cure for friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems, and the substance has excellent conductive qualities, which benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.

Hard to believe, but 40 years have passed since Earl Slick nabbed the coveted spot replacing Mick Ronson as David Bowie’s main guitarist. Since then, the Brooklyn-born six-stringer has figured prominently on many of Bowie’s most important albums—including last year’s much acclaimed The Next Day. Other Slick projects have included prime contributions to John Lennon’s Double Fantasy album, and a number of solo projects.

The Gibson Interview: Johnny A (Part 1)

Comments
Sometimes, great players go too unnoticed — even in the Internet age. Johnny A is one. A supreme talent, Johnny is one of the best instrumental guitar players you’ll likely hear, but he’s still not a household name. 2014 could and should change that. He melds jazz, blues and rock with deftness, all with a delicately lyrical touch and great tone.

Boston Is Back: An In-Depth Conversation with Guitar Legend Tom Scholz

Russell Hall
|

01.21.2014

|
Comments
Beginning with Boston’s mega-selling 1976 self-titled debut, the pioneering guitarist has always insisted on creative autonomy, hunkering down in his basement studio, often for years, to craft the songs, sounds and arrangements that meet his exacting standards. Seemingly interminable gaps between albums have been common, but the musical riches on each Boston release have always been worth the wait.
