The Essential Doors Albums

Comments
In the years since Jim Morrison's untimely demise, interest in the Doors has waned at times, but invariably something comes along (a movie, a book) that kickstarts renewed fascination with the band. During their five-year reign as America’s premiere rock group, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, John Densmore, and Morrison released a series of albums that both embodied and transcended the turbulent spirit of the late ’60s.

Comments
The three-note-per-string pattern is one of the easiest ways of remembering scales on the guitar, and it’s a format that lends itself especially well to high-speed playing techniques like economy picking or legato, too.

P-90ST and P-90SR Pickups: Versatility with a Vintage Vibe

Craig Anderton

Comments
The P-90 has a well-deserved reputation as a single-coil pickup with a big, fat, high-output sound—not the thin character often associated with single-coil pickups. So in designing the Les Paul Melody Maker, the daunting task for Gibson pickup guru Jim DeCola was to invent pickups that were worthy of the P-90 name, but could accommodate the Melody Maker’s mission to be the best value ever in a no-compromise Les Paul guitar.

Sidewinder P-90H Humbucker: Back to the Future

04.08.2014

|
Comments
The mission: deliver the fat, P-90 single-coil sound in a hum-cancelling humbucker design for Gibson’s bold Futura guitars. The first attempt, a stacked P-100 configuration, didn’t sound convincing enough to be a true P-90, so it was back to the drawing board…but also, back to the future.

Comments
When Gibson introduced the Robot Guitar in 2007, the instrument’s innovative self-tuning technology was an incredible breakthrough — saving time and allowing one guitar to do the job of several, at least in terms of being quickly available to power through a series of open and alternate tunings on stage without disrupting the flow of a set.

Comments
Grunge bloomed from the mid-to-late ‘80s Seattle music scene with fuzzy, distorted electric guitars, angst-y vocals and a general rebellion against the establishment. After the mainstream breakthrough of Nirvana’s Nevermind album in 1991, the genre became the most popular style of rock music in the ‘90s.

The Joy Of PLEKs

Peter Hodgson

04.04.2014

Comments
The fretboard is where a heck of a lot of our guitaristic expression occurs. It’s where our fingers contact the strings to sound specific notes (of course), and that means that it’s an intersection between the physical and conceptual aspects of our playing. It’s where the strings get pushed, bent, tapped, hammered, pulled, flicked and otherwise harassed in the name of art.

Les Paul’s Favorite Les Paul – The Recording Model

Comments
With input into some of the world’s most iconic guitars, you may think Les Paul’s favorite Les Paul would be a “legendary” one. An original ’52 Gold Top, maybe? Or a sunburst ’59 Standard? But no. Les Paul’s favorite was the Les Paul Recording model of the 1970s. It never sold particularly well. But to Les himself, it was the ultimate Gibson Les Paul.

Comments
When the Edge and Jack White stare at another guitar player like wide-eyed teenage fanboys, that player must have some serious mojo — Rock of Gibraltar status. And Jimmy Page certainly has earned his place at the zenith of electric guitar history, crafting riffs and tones that will forever help define the sound of both rock and blues six-string.
