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

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.

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.

“It’s a guitar that all my heroes played: Jimmy Page, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry, Keith Richards. All the guys I admired played that guitar,” he told Gibson.com. “There’s nothing like the sound and feel and shape. Everything about the Les Paul is really perfect.

Sure, contemporary country stars like Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Joe Don Rooney, and session men from Kenny Greenberg to Kenny Vaughan, can pick up a storm. But the foundation of their styles rests on the plethora of county studio and stage six-stringers who came before them.

Although a few models found their way to music stores in 1953, it was 60 years ago that the Gibson Les Paul Custom was officially launched in 1954. After the Goldtop Les Paul Model of 1952, it was the first variation on the classic single-cutaway design.

Larger Strap Button

Comments
Compared to the various sexy features of the 2014 model year guitars, the larger strap button may seem to fall under the category “one of these things is not like the others.” Granted, it doesn’t create better tone, it’s not some cool new finish, and it doesn’t make your guitar more playable.

If you want to go all the way to 15, there's TurboBoost for the Les Paul Futura, SG Futura, Les Paul Classic, and Les Paul Signature. Switch out of bypass mode, and this onboard preamp can deliver a whopping 15dB of gain to overdrive amps, buffer your guitar from “downstream” effects, and drive inputs (like mixers and PA systems) that want a hotter level.

There are so many effects available today and so many ways to call them up that we can easily take them for granted. You can whip out a smartphone and instantly have an amp in your pocket which includes such sophisticated effects as pitch shifting, rhythmic delay and even pitch-to-MIDI translation. And for me when I first started, one of the biggest, most confusing questions was “What’s the difference between flanging and phasing?”
