Perception is a funny thing. If you’ve ever listened to your voice on a recording, or caught your reflection in a mirror and didn’t recognize yourself for a second, you know what I’m talking about.

Inspiration is fragile. Remember those songs you lost when you couldn’t record an idea in time, the great riff that came and went, or the computer crash that trashed a fantastic solo?

Pickup Joint: Magnets Decoded

Peter Hodgson

Comments
When you really get down to it, a pickup is simply a magnet with a bunch of wire wrapped around it. The magnet creates its own magnetic field (obviously) and the guitar string interacts with that field, and this is translated by the coil of wire, and then some stuff happens in an amp, and then an audience gets rocked.

Comments
It’s hardly surprising that many of rock’s most legendary guitarists have plied their craft on a Gibson SG. With its warm sustain, silky fretboard, and sharp cutaways, the SG is conducive to all types of playing—from searing solos to chunky rhythms to sinewy leads. Moreover, the SG’s sleek, lightweight design and striking beauty makes it a much-favored instrument for live performance.

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.

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.
