Pignose 7-100 Amplifier Review

Pignose 7-100

Ever since I first saw Crossroads when I was a kid, I thought the Pignose 7-100 amplifier was pretty cool and wanted one (along with a Fender Telecaster).  I’m not sure why I never bought one since they aren’t exactly cost prohibitive.  When I first tried to learn guitar when I was younger we didn’t have the internet (wow, I just felt really old saying that) so it wasn’t like I could go on ebay to find one.  My gear selection was limited to the three guitar shops in town and none of them had the Pignose.  Well here I am (many) years later and taking up the guitar again and the Pignose 7-100 popped back into my mind and I picked one up.

Gibson Jimi Hendrix Model Guitar

Jimi Hendrix Gibson Flying V

The folks over at Gibson are apparently going to make a Jimi Hendrix signature model guitar. I find this a bit curious.

Tascam GT-R1 Review

Tascam GT-R1

So far for all my recordings I’ve been using the Tascam GT-R1 and it’s built in microphone.  I’ve been pretty happy with the quality, but that may just be because I haven’t tried any alternatives.  I did just order a Shure SM57 microphone to see if that helps with recording quality.

Guitar Lesson – August 28, 2009

Arpeggios

A new feature I’m going to have here is a lesson recap every time I have a lesson with my instructor.  These my vary from every week to every two weeks depending on my schedule.  In these posts you’ll get to see  what I’m learning in my lessons.  For me, it will be a great re-cap and force me to get a grasp on what I just learned.  My lessons are on Thursday, so I’ll make these posts of Friday.

Gibson ES-175SP Pics

Gibson ES-175SP

Here are some pictures of my Gibson Custom Shop ES-175SP.  I wrote about the guitar previously and talked about how it’s a unique ES-175.  Unlike most Gibson ES-175’s, this one only has one pickup.  The finish on this model is a custom finish and not like other ES-175 sunbursts as well.
