slow music

The other day I put the excellent new Robin Trower album, Coming Closer To The Day, on in the car. I found myself transported by Robin’s playing – unhurried phrases, played with consummate taste (see review, p38). It put me in mind of a topic some of us were debating in the Guitarist office recently, namely that most of the world’s greatest guitarists don’t spend an awful lot of time playing fast.

the right stuff

At various points since 1985, Heritage has provided a very valid alternative to Gibson – building its guitars in a purchased space of Gibson’s historic Kalamazoo factory, and, originally, with some key senior ex-Gibson employees on the team. Its guitars have been a rare sight in the UK over the past decade, but new owners in 2016 signified a seemingly revitalised company, and now its streamlined range has proper distribution here, too.Now, as then, it’s that heritage that is the biggest pull for many. Somehow, guitars built in the same location as those of the 50s and 60s classics must be as good, if not better, than the Gibsons themselves. Ironically, at times the almost-ramshackle production facilities and original machinery proved just as variable in terms of quality…
