Gibson Jimi Hendrix Guitar Canceled?

Jimi Hendrix Guitar On Fire

Ok, this is strange, but all of the links to the Gibson Jimi Hendrix guitar have been removed from Gibson’s website.  Has Gibson come to their senses and pulled the plug on the guitar that seemed to be wildly hated across the internet?  Could my fake Fender Les Paul post have been what made them see how utterly ridiculous it was for them to be making the Jimi Hendrix strat?  (don’t worry, I’m not that delusional)

Guitar Lesson – September 25th, 2009

Dr. Suess

For this weeks lesson we continued with the “circle of notes” diagram that I wrote about in my last lesson.  My instructor Kit likes to call this his “Dr. Seuss” lesson since at first glance it doesn’t quite make sense and I need to trust that it’s going somewhere.  This week I learned that this was more than just a memorization exercise to learn the notes backwards and forwards from any given note as I wrote last week.  This time, Kit added two new circles (shown below) with different “note spacing” between the notes.

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.
