Gibson Custom Shop L-5 Wes Montgomery archtop guitar

If you play guitar, or ever wanted to, sooner or later you're going to want to own a carved archtop jazzbox. You might play blues, or country, or rockabilly, fusion or even jazz on it, but you'll want that inimitable archtop mellow plus the full-bodied feel of draping your picking arm over sensual, resonant curves of the archy's lower bout. Wes Montgomery's expressive, quick, fleshy style was captured often by his special Gibson L-5 that was ordered without a bridge pickup. With only the neck pickup mounted close to the edge of the top in a relatively non-resonant area, the arched soundboard resonates freely for a warm, rich, amplified tone that also cuts through acoustically. The neck is sufficiently slender to feel fast, but deep enough to feel meaty in your hand. The re-issued Gibson Wes has just enough inlay ornamentation to look special but is tasteful and restrained. You can get it natural, sunburst and even tobacco burst, but none of these are as graceful as the super-suave Wes in luscious Wine Red. This is a multi-generational instrument made in USA.

My husband had just gotten my very deserving 12 year old stepson a very nice Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar in Daphne blue. Along with the guitar he also got him a fender amp, tuner and some very cool picks. I can't wait to see his face Xmas morning, he's gonna be so happy.

  • As if a Gibson wasn't cool enough!! Now this line of Gibsons actually tune themselves. Standard, alternate and custom tunings available. I need one of these bad boys in my collection. Tuning would never slow the show again :p

The Pocket POD is great as a little practice modeler and entry-level effects pedal. Also, it fits nicely in any gig bag pocket-no need for a separate pedal case!

While a full case of pedals can be impressive and fun to play with, they're expensive and tough to lug around. I was skeptical at first of the whole Line 6 series of all-in-one effects pedals, but after using this one for awhile now, I can say that in cost and weight vs price & convenience, the POD can't be beat. The range of effects and sounds which this pedal can emulate is immense, and the sound is studio-quality. I wouldn't go for the more expensive models though, the XT or the POD 2.0, because if you need their added features, you can probably afford to go to the source. The X3 has 98 stompbox and studio effect models, 78 amp models, and the ability to string together 9 different effects in a chain-Incredible!

It can create a variety of unusual and "futuristic" sounds which are are best for layering into harmonies for a really unique feel. Perfect for experimental, ambient, electronic, and various other types of artists.

  • This is my favorite of the popular (but generally unimpressive) Boss distortion pedals. Provides a clean high end and a great low end distortion. This pedal gives me the darker edge that I can't get on my Big Muff.

  • Great flanger pedal. The best for everthing from a slight swish to that jet-engine rumble you've heard used by The Police, The Cure, Van Halen, Ozzy, and The Psychedelic Furs. The M-117R effects pedal has 4 knobs and a footswitch.... Great flanger pedal. The best for everthing from a slight swish to that jet-engine rumble you've heard used by The Police, The Cure, Van Halen, Ozzy, and The Psychedelic Furs. The M-117R effects pedal has 4 knobs and a footswitch. The footswitch toggles the flanger effect on/bypass (red LED indicates on). The Manual knob selects the frequency center of the effect when auto-sweep is disengaged. The Width knob at zero disengages auto-sweep, but when you rotate it clockwise, it increases the total phase sweep of the effect. The Speed knob modulates rate of effect. The Regen knob feeds the effect back onto itself at adjustable intensity, increasing the total phase effect.

  • My favorite reverb pedal. All the audial purity of the original Holy Grail, plus controls to adjust decay, damping, and modulation.

  • The one knobbed wonder is my one-stop stomp for phase modulation. I've you've ever heard Van Halen, you've heard the Phase 90. This pedal put the happy in the upbeat, toe-tappin' rock songs of the last 40 years. It's great especia... The one knobbed wonder is my one-stop stomp for phase modulation. I've you've ever heard Van Halen, you've heard the Phase 90. This pedal put the happy in the upbeat, toe-tappin' rock songs of the last 40 years. It's great especially for those long, sweeping solos. Mmm, buttery!

With 11 modes and up to 2 seconds of delay, you'd be hard pressed to find a better bang for your buck outside of a dedicated rackmount. This is best for either the experienced experimental musician or the solo guitarist who wants some backup. Digital delay pedals record the input from the guitar, and after a short interval, play it through the amp. Along with various time modes, the DD-6 adds a cool tap-tempo feature, a mysterious reverse simulation, and a hold feature. The Tap Mode makes this the ultimate live pedal as delay times can be tapped in on the fly via the Boss FS-5U footswitch. The Reverse Mode gives you a kooky mixture of the original sound mixed with the reverse. The hold feature is great for atmospherics or droney passages. The coolest thing about the DD-6 is that the decay trails off even after you've disengaged the pedal.

  • "Like a Hot Rod Deluxe that's been shrunk!" I'd seen mini amps in the glass cases of various music stores, but I didn't think they were cool until I saw one used on the back cover photo of " Arno Charles Ernest" for French pop... "Like a Hot Rod Deluxe that's been shrunk!" I'd seen mini amps in the glass cases of various music stores, but I didn't think they were cool until I saw one used on the back cover photo of " Arno Charles Ernest" for French pop star Arno. Over the years I've given mini amps to friends as gifts, and they always call me back to tell me how happy they where about the sound quality. So one day I got one for myself--and it rocks! Product Blah Blah Blah The Fender Mini Deluxe Amp has a level of detail unmatched by any other mini amplifier. Functional "dogbone" handle, chrome control plate, mini chicken-head knobs. And the Mini Deluxe has Fender tone, too!
