the great rig in the sky

As I write this, David Gilmour’s Black Strat has just broken all records for guitar auctions, selling for $3,975,000 (including buyer’s premium) at Christie’s in New York. The auction, which comprised 127 guitars from the Pink Floyd legend’s collection, generated a massive $21 million–much of which will benefit each and every one of us as David has chosen to donate the proceeds to ClientEarth, a charity fighting against climate change. It’s an extraordinary act of generosity and, in the case of the Black Strat, proof that a heavily modified instrument can take you a long way. If tweaking and modding guitars is your thing, this month’s magazine will serve you well. Aside from 45 indispensable pro tips and fixes that will help keep your guitar playing and sounding its best, we…

Join the conversation Email us at editors@guitar.com PLUMBING NEW DEPTHS Dear Guitar Magazine, As a regular subscriber, I have noted the recent interest in Fender offset guitars–and having never ventured away from Strats and Teles I now have a really good Jazzmaster. The only negative is the vibrato bar. Mine is a 2014 Mexican model in sunburst, so has the screw-in variety, but it still has a degree of play, can rattle and become floppy. In my opinion, the answer is a captive ball bearing like on my Franke kitchen sink plug hole, where the shaft’s ball bearing keeps the small drainer/plug under tension. This would work so well for a Jazzmaster/Jaguar wang bar… Let me know your thoughts, keep up the good magazine! MICHAEL BENTLEY, VIA EMAIL It’s certainly an interesting and innovative idea,…

@SINEADBURGESS When did you first discover the guitar? “My first encounter with a guitar was actually my brother’s. He got it for a birthday. It was played a couple times then started collecting dust. I’d played piano since I was five and I remember looking at his acoustic one day and having an overwhelming desire to learn how to play it. Once I picked it up, I didn’t put it down.” When did you start writing songs? “My first documented song was when I was five. It was pretty dreadful [laughs]. But it’s absolutely been something I’ve found myself doing as long as I can remember. My influences definitely revolved back then around my parents’ era, and really, still do today. My earliest memory of music was listening to The Beatles, ELO, Chicago, Elton…

CELEBRITY MANSIONS Leeds alt-rockers Dinosaur Pile-Up have been bringing bruising riffs and killer hooks to the masses since 2010, but their new major-label debut Celebrity Mansions sees the power trio reach a new level. Read on as main-man Matt Bigland pinpoints five key moments… STUPID HEAVY METAL BROKEN HEARTED LOSER PUNK “The middle section might be my favourite moment on the whole record. It’s just so fun and out there. I love that it was a half-a-second decision to take the song that way just because it felt cool and as soon as I’d done it, I was like, ‘Oh shit, that kicks!’. “I honestly couldn’t tell you what amps we used, because the pile of heads (and I literally mean a pile) went from the table they were all on to the ceiling…

DANIEL TOMPKINS Limitless The Tesseract singer’s debut solo offering features many sonic delights and unusually, an electro-pop feel on an album laden with synths and soundscapes. IAN NOE Between The Country A stark album full of desolation, Noe recalls vintage John Prine throughout. Arpeggiated acoustics are accompanied by simple rhythms and reverb-drenched lead lines. TEMPLES Hot Motion The first single since the band moved to esteemed indie label ATO Records, Hot Motion is classic Temples with saturated guitars and James Bagshaw’s vintage vocals. BILL FRISELL Surfer Girl Taken from 2014’s Guitar In The Space Age!, this showcases Frisell’s ability to honour the classics. The incomparable jazz guitarist talks about his new LP Epistrophy on p64. STEPHEN TARANTO Pixel Heart: Verdant A wondrously progressive instrumental track that employs some incredibly fluid guitar lines that, while jaw-droppingly flawless, still augment the catchy melodies. VAL MCCALLUM Chateauguay The title track…
