FEATURES

HENRY GROSS
Open Henry Gross’ latest album is an amazing mix of pop, rock, country, and ballads. Those who remember him for nothing more than his ’70s hit “Shannon” are in for a treat. By John Heidt

GARY MOORE
He played with Thin Lizzy and BBM, and his solo albums are players’ favorites. We recently caught up with Moore, who is always eager to discuss his gear, his history, and his latest efforts. By Willie G. Moseley

STILL BROADCASTING
Richard Lloyd and Television Find New Life Television was a dichotomy of punk attitude and intellectual musicianship. To put it another way, they hated hippies, but liked guitar solos. By Ken Johnson

GUYATONE LG-160T
While many Americans in the ’60s were seeing low-quality import guitars at the neighborhood Western Auto, there was a thriving domestic scene that produced guitars like this. By Michael Wright

THE DIFFERENT STRUMMER
Harmony’s Colorama Guitars Return with us now to the colorful days of the mid 1950s. Cool cars were on the road, and the Les Paul and Strat were on the street. But no company plunged into the spirit of the times with the gusto of Harmony, and its Colorama guitars. By Michael Wright

THE BASS SPACE
Fender’s Precision Elite II The Precision Bass has been offered in a myriad of models. One of the more intriguing (if complex) variants was the Elite II, from 1983. By Willie G. Moseley

CABLE SUMMIT
Our perception of how a cable affects our signal is a complex matter; and there is a large selection of high-performance instrument and speaker cables available for every style and budget. By Eric Kirkland
