2013 Issue 06 June
This month we’ve got the latest, greatest coverage from Europe’s biggest gear show-50 guitars, basses, amps, pedals, and accessories that are guaranteed to make you drool. Our artist features this month include interviews with shred legend Joe Satriani, the Meat Puppets’ Curt and Cris Kirkwood, Eric Gales and Doug Pinnick, and U.K. blues songstress Bex Marshall. We also talk to Visual Sound’s Bob Weil, take a look at what sorts of things to look for in a case or gigbag, and revisit the life and legacy of the late Chicago guitarist Terry Kath. Gear reviews this month include the new Taylor 518e, Nik Huber’s Rietbergen Standard, the new Ibanez ES-2 Echo Shifter, MXR’s Bass Chorus Deluxe, Source Audio’s Orbital Modulator, Lace’s new Dirty Hesher humbuckers, and five more guitar and bass reviews.
