How come after 60 years of electric solid body guitar evolution, we still buy and desire guitars which are essentially the same as the ones made by Gibson, Fender and Gretch in the 1950s? Why are guitarists so conservative? Why are vintage guitars apparently better?
There was a lot of noise about the Fishman Fluence pickups when they were released in 2014. Here is my experience of using them, as well as a short YouTube demo.
I have been avoiding getting a professional setup on my guitars for far too long. Here’s why you should have your guitar setup by a pro and why you shouldn’t wait for too long to have it done.
Here is the part two of a simple demonstration of the new delays presets available in Kemper Profiling Amp Profiler OS version 5. I’m using a completely clean profile Fuchs ODS30 with no effects except for the tested delays. I love the new delays and I have been waiting for “crystal” type of sound since I got my Kemper.
