Murph Squire 11-T

...d featured a three-way pickup selector. The one “catseye” soundhole looks suspiciously Kawai, and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that these bodies were indeed Japanese-made. In late ’66 or early ’67, Murph introduced some prototype 3/4-scale Baby Murph variants of the Satellite, but they never entered production. A number of other curious instruments were made by Murph in small quantities. In ’66, Sears contracted for some Silvertones, bu...

Kawai MS-700 MoonSault

...ved. It should come as no surprise that, whenever guitars arrived, the instrument was well-received! Just when European-style guitars came to Japan is uncertain. The island empire was “opened” by Commodore Matthew Perry in 1853-’54. Prior to that, the only ships allowed to dock at port were Chinese and Dutch, and the Dutch traders were confined to a small offshore island. It’s even possible that Perry’s sailors themselves brought the first guitars...

Robben Ford – In Concert Revisited

...onstage at once, sets off an alarm (as it should), be informed that that cluster pluck was only for the finale – although the number of six-stringers playing musical chairs at any given time fluctuates between three and four (which I think we can all agree is at least one too many). The players all exhibit enough taste to match their chops, though, and stay out of each other’s way. The Parisian guitarists – Danys Lable, Claude Engel, Michael Jones...

Vinny Roth

...d “dinosaur.” His pedals are an Ibanez TS-808, MXR Distortion 3, a Boss Chorus, a Boss Digital Delay, and a Crybaby wah. Roth has taught guitar for more than 20 years, and today teaches about 40 students. More and more today, his younger students are being inspired by what he and other members of his generation initially see as an odd source. “I like the Guitar Hero video game a lot because so many kids are getting turned on to some good old guita...

Thin Lizzy – Still Dangerous

...this economical. Closing out the set is “Me and the Boys,” a boozy crowd-pleaser that never made it onto any Lizzy album. It’s a fitting way to close this excellent live set and makes a fine companion piece for their 1978 classic, Live and Dangerous. When it comes to Thin Lizzy and guitars, “dangerous” seems to be the only word that fits. This article originally appeared in VG‘s Jun. ’09 issue.

Various Artists – Best of Outlaw Country

...length, then there are better choices than “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight.” Charlie Daniels, too, has better songs but not many bigger hits than “The South’s Gonna Do It Again” but big sales make a strong case. Maybe the Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” is the collection’s truest pick; a big hit by a working class band at their apex. It’s a perfect bridge between rock and roll and its country cousins and one of the cuts making...

Willie Nelson – Willie & The Wheel

...get their vocal moments. The relaxed, often rollicking two-step beat and austere instrumentation convey pre-war swing, spiced by occasional placed brass and reeds that hint at the music’s Dixieland roots. With Nelson focusing on vocals, nearly all the hot string moments come from Benson, Eddie Rivers’ cleanly articulated lap steel and Roberts’ electric mandolin. Most tunes come from the prewar repertoires of both the Musical Brownies (formed in 1...

Hallmark Swept Wing Semi-Hollow

...nd basses in ’66, but the model didn’t “fly” in terms of acceptance among musicians and instrument retailers. One theory holds that at that time, psychedelic music was emerging from San Francisco, and West Coast musicians were picking up more semi-hollow electric guitars because they were better at generating the feedback and sustain that were part of that style. So, in ’67 Hallmark began building semi-hollow Swept Wing instruments by routing sect...

Willie Nelson – Naked Willie

...r, did Nelson began to evolve into the lovable hophead cowboy pixie whose music has become part of the American pop fabric. So the idea to strip down some of his pre-“outlaw” material and expose the work of session musicians like Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins was a great one. Unfortunately, because Reed, Atkins, et al were part of the support team, there are no examples of great hitherto obscure licks. There are times when the “treatment” given these...
