The Guild and Gibson Johnny Smith ModelsThe Guild and Gibson Johnny Smith Models

The name "Johnny Smith" is synonymous with class, elegance, and style. Most guitar players are familiar, if not with the man or his music, certainly with the guitars that bear his name. The instruments reflect Smith's unique approach to playing and jazz guitar, in particular — ultra-smooth and restrained, yet sophisticated. From the Gretsch Synchromatic 400 to the fabulous custom D'Angelico New Yorker to the Guild, Gibson, and Heritage models, Smith has been associated with beautifully designed top-of-the-line instruments.

St. Blues Bluesmaster, Blindsider, and Delta Blues BoxSt. Blues Bluesmaster, Blindsider, and Delta Blues Box

St. Blues' history stretches back to the days when its founders customized guitars for the likes of Jimmy Page, Billy Gibbons, and Duane Allman as their tours passed through Memphis. Today, the company's storefront is just a few yards from the legendary Sun Studio, and in a nearby factory builds its top-of-the-line Workshop Series, which includes the Bluesmaster and Blindsider models.

Where the evolution of guitar amplification, in general, traces musicians' needs to be louder, the history of Vox follows, in particular, The Beatles' need to play louder. And this was a very real need indeed, with thousands-strong crowds of screaming teenage girls drowning out the Fab Four's live shows with frustrating regularity. Vox founder Tom Jennings and his head engineer, Dick Denney, might have doubled the power of the AC15 to produce the concert-ready AC30 for Hank Marvin and the Shadows, who performed both as a solo instrumental act and as Cliff Richard's backing band, but their AC50 was the result of a desperate effort to help the world's most popular band to be heard.

Nick MossNick Moss

Since 2007, guitarist/vocalist Nick Moss has released five albums on his Blue Bella label, including two live discs. And while Moss still loves his Chicago-style blues, his most recent effort, Here I Am, is an adventurous album. Though it begins with a raucous Windy City-type rave-up called "Why You So Mean," by the third/title track, it's obvious Moss is up to something, as "Here I Am" is nothing less than a Led-Zeppelin-style stomp.
