We talk to Devon Allman, Duane Betts, and Johnny Stachela about their work in the Allman Betts Band. 

We also dig deep into Gibson’s 1971 Flying V Custom and the Matamp White W100, then pay a visit to the Electronic Music Education & Preservation Project, home to many a famous rig! 

Our “Classics” blast from the past features a ’Burst you’ve certainly heard! 

Lending personal insight to their latest music are Elvin Bishop, Peter Frampton, Dave Kilminster, Johnny Nicholas, Jordan Tice, Robin Trower, Will Bernard, and Oz Noy.

When you’re ready to build a fresh playlist, we have the info you need in this month’s “Hit List” reviews, where  we highlight the latest from Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Shemekia Copeland, Roger Waters, Robin Trower, Sturgill Simpson, Rory Gallagher, Black Stone Cherry, and many others!

And because life is better when you have cool new gear, we’re here to sort through the latest with our “Approved Gear” reviews. This month, we test-drive Cicognani Engineering’s Pompeii PP603, the EHX Pitch Fork +, Gibson’s Lukas Nelson ’56 Les Paul Junior, the Ibanez AS200, JHS 3 Series, Taylor GTe, Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb Blonde, and the Martin D-X2E.

It’s all in the February issue of Vintage Guitar!
