star signing

Welcome to this month’s issue, in which we celebrate the triumphant return of Annie Clark aka St Vincent. There’s plenty to discuss. In addition to the eclectic 1970s stylings of new LP Daddy’s Home, there’s also the matter of a fabulous new version of Clark’s signature Ernie Ball Music Man electric. How do you make one of the coolest signature guitars on Earth even cooler? Stick a trio of gold foil pickups in it, of course. Find out more in our cover feature from page 26 onwards. Other than a few Les Pauls, I don’t think I’ve ever owned any other signature guitars. But I’ve certainly played plenty that I’ve found appealing. Top of the heap for me is a model that was never made in any great numbers: the Gibson Luther…

MICHAEL JAMES ADAMS HELLE-RAISER As well as serving as Guitar Magazine’s resident tech talker – flip to p122 to have him walk you through a particularly tricky neck-pocket adjustment – Mike also makes some pretty damn fine YouTube videos. His favourite signature model is a maximalist wonder, the Fender John Jorgenson Hellecaster. “It’s a glammed-out Stratocaster with a sparkle finish,” he says. “Some might call it ‘gaudy’ but that would be unkind. What makes it so interesting to both high-school me and present-day me are the triple Electric XII split-coil pickups.” JOSH GARDNER WORLD EATER Managing editor Josh has never owned a signature guitar, though he did once come close: “A 16-year-old me nearly bought a Tom DeLonge Signature Strat… not sure how that single Seymour Duncan Invader would have got on with my John…

WINDING ME UP Hello, Guitar Magazine team. My friend Alex suggested I get in touch with you after reading your letters about home-made instruments. I make bespoke guitars as a side hustle and sell them mainly to family and friends. I started making my own pickups and then went onto full builds after I had a few inquiries. This guitar was built for my sister a couple of months ago. I call it the ‘Minty Don’. All the pickups are hand-wound and made from scratch. Designed to be a guitar for mellow, crisp styles with a bit of oomph in the bridge when required, we took David Gilmour’s sound as a starting point. The body is alder, with a maple neck (with vintage 7.25-inch radius), a bone nut, chrome hardware and the all-important…

the lazy eyes

The psychedelic, hypnotic sound of The Lazy Eyes has gained them over 1.5 million streams since the release of their first EP. Now that their high school days are behind them, the band are on their way to gifting the world more psychedelic pizazz as they release EP2. We had a chat with vocalist and guitarist Itay Shachar to discover more about their trippy aesthetic and recording under a bunk bed… How have you progressed as a band since you recorded EP1 last year? “We were in a totally different headspace when we recorded EP1. Those tracks felt like easing pressure after having sat on them since our high school days, so as soon as we got out, we thought ‘Okay, we have to do this now.’ With EP2, we had a…

molly miller trio st george

Recorded over just two days at LA studio United Recording in 2019, Dr Molly Miller’s St George is a lyrical album that focuses on arrangements and traditional song structures as much as it does improvisation. Performed alongside fellow session stalwarts Jennifer Condos on bass and Jay Bellerose on drums, the record is a testament to the power of trusting your intuition and musicianship. Whether the good doctor is utilising her beloved ’78 ES-335 or improvising with her Shell Pink Telecaster, each song feels considered but not overworked, dancing between abundant grooves and melodies. Here, she selects her five favourite parts from the album. ST GEORGE “I wrote St George at my parents’ house. Although the beginning phrase simply walks down a major scale, there was something heavy and melodic about it to…
