Premier Guitar January 2018: Our cover story this month is a true treat for longtime fans of Radiohead: After decades of avoiding guitar interviews, Ed O’Brien steps out of the shadows to gratefully ruminate with PG about his journey in one of modern rock’s most celebrated—and confounding—bands. We also talk to funk bassist extraordinaire Bootsy Collins, blues badass Samantha Fish, Bloodclot’s Todd Youth (formerly of Danzig) and Nick Oliveri (previously of Queens of the Stone Age), and—in a double-whammy treasure—avant-garde guitarist Elliott Sharp interviews storied producer Peter K. Siegel about his work recording with Doc Watson and Roy Buchanan. On the gear front, this issue we have a feature all about the ins and outs of guitar necks—materials, construction, profile shapes, etc.—as well as 13 guitar and bass reviews, including the Gretsch Players Edition Broadkaster, Wooly Coats’ Spanky MkII, the Mayones Hydra, Baroni Lab’s Mini Amp 50, Traveler’s LTD EC-1, the Grez Mendocino, KHDK’s Abyss, Old Blood Noise Endeavors’ Fault, the Serek Midwestern 2, Mid-Fi Electronics’ Magick i, the RainSong CH-WS, and Rocket Surgeon’s Boris. In our print edition (only), we also have transcriptions of Van Halen’s “Mean Street,” Doc Watson’s “Blackberry Blossom,” and King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man.”
