mods and rockers

Welcome to another edition of Guitarist magazine, which this month is devoted to the joys of modding your instrument. Most of us have dabbled, at one time or another, in what could be a whole pastime in itself: swapping out pickups, upgrading hardware and buffing the look of your guitar until it’s exactly how you want it. That’s the theory anyway – more often than not modding is a bit of an adventure where no upgrade behaves just exactly as you expect it to. That’s maybe because (and I’ve certainly been guilty of this) we sometimes expect mods to be a ‘magic bullet’ that solves all our tone or playability issues at a single stroke. But strengthening one factor in your guitar’s performance often creates a weakness, or at least…

junior genius

Having recently completed his outstanding acoustic guitar orders, and given his workshop an “electric-centric” makeover, Patrick J Eggle and his four-strong team are now firmly in the electric guitar business. And it’s a typically modern ‘boutique’ business at that, as Patrick explains: “we’re making 10-12 guitars a month, and my goal is to get up to 20. We don’t have a huge number of dealers but we are struggling to keep them supplied. We took on The Music Zoo, in the USA, at this year’s NAMM show back in January and we haven’t shipped them one guitar as yet. In fact, the one you have there is going to them.” Lucky them, we say. This latest in the Macon line is purposely stripped back, but shouldn’t it really be a ‘Special’…

It seems we still can’t get enough of lunchbox heads; almost every amp manufacturer has at least one in their catalogue, while for some they’re the most popular model. Victory is no exception, with no less than eight on their website (seven if you discount the Mark I V30). It’s clear Victory has hit on a winning formula and most of that’s down to the V30 ‘The Countess’ head, which was Victory’s first lunchbox head. Originally designed for the insanely talented Guthrie Govan as his ‘fly-in’ amp, the V30 is one of Victory’s most popular models. New for 2018, the The Countess has received an upgrade and here we’re looking at one of the first Mark IIs to roll off the production line. Resplendent in its new black chrome finish, the ‘The…

Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to witness two key models from US brand Reverend’s highly regarded Bolt-On Series. Please be seated. In the beginning, 1997 to be more precise, Reverend Guitars was founded by luthier and amplifier technician, Joe Naylor. Since then, the marque has picked up more endorsements than your average boy racer with the likes of former Bowie sideman Reeves Gabrels, gifted Dwight Yoakam and Buck Owens collaborator Pete Anderson, and the late great Ron Asheton of The Stooges, securing signature models. Like all Reverend models, our offset-bodied Airsonic RA and T-Style Buckshot feature a chassis hewn from your finest slabs of Terminalia superba. You’ll know this stuff best as limba or more likely korina, the Holy Grail timber Gibson used to build its iconic late 50s Flying…
