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. While yes it is true he did play a Gibson Flying V on occasion, I think we all know  Jimi’s main guitar was a Fender Stratocaster. If they were to do a Jimi Hendrix  Flying V, that would be cool, but from the sound of the article that’s not what this is going to be. These guitars are “inspired by” Jimi Hendrix.

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.

RIP Les Paul

Les Paul RIP

Well, I doubt I need to mention it, but today is a sad day due to the passing of Les Paul. I recently watched the Les Paul documentary Les Paul: Chasing Sound and I was absolutely amazed by what he had accomplished musically and technologically. I remember when I was a kid I use to think “why is there a guitar named after Les Paul… who the hell is he?” Of course at the time Def Leppard’s Phil Collen was my idol and if you didn’t have big hair you didn’t exist. But take one look at this documentary and you’ll see why not only was a guitar named after him, the greatest guitar ever made was named after him (there’s a reason I chose a Les Paul for my logo at the top of the page).
