TurboBoost

Comments
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.

And for me when I first started, one of the biggest, most confusing questions was “What’s the difference between flanging and phasing?”

A guitar’s pickups and electronics have a huge influence on its basic tone, as well as what it will sound like through effects—so it’s important to choose the right pickup for the right job. Most people feel single-coil pickups have a brighter, thinner sound while humbuckers sound warmer and thicker, but there’s more to the story than that.

SGJ Road Test: World-Class Playability and Sound at a Budget Price

When Gibson USA makes a guitar with a list price of $499… that’s news. And when that guitar is the Gibson SGJ, it’s great news. I have been giving a right-off-the-line SGJ a beating for the last few weeks and it has proven to be an absolute war horse — charging through gigs and studio adventures, rehearsals where it’s gone toe-to-toe with my vintage Gibsons, and through a variety of amps from a Mesa-Boogie Dual Rectifier Tremo-Verb to a Marshall plexi to a Supro Lightning Bolt to a humble Roland Micro-Cube and more.

The Magic of ’59 and the '59 Tribute Humbucker

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).
