    NGD - Gibson Jimi Hendrix Flying V

    Hey friends, Last week I have bough this outstanding Jimi Hendrix Gibson Custom Hall of Fame Flying V. What can I say, I feel very lucky to have been offered this beautiful instrument from 1992. It's a lightweight, it looks "sexy", plays and sound killer and marks something very very special to...

    True Historic?

    I did so much not care about all these „given“ facts when I bought my 2016 58 TH :-) Played about 100 gigs with it and not a single gig where I didn’t love this guitar or get super positive feedback on the sound. Honestly, I think every instrument is individual and shall inspire you in what you...

    NUX Solid Studio -Just Wow!

    Hey friends, I've currently the NUX Solid Studio and the Two Notes Cab M+ at home. The Two Notes is almost too much for me with all the options, the NUX us easy, self exmplaining and "more anaolgue". I'm highly enjoying this unit, played it live for the last two gig in combination with my amp...

    Don't ask - I'll take the SG!

    Hey peeps, Once upon a time I had the chance to compare both guitars to each other. I know there have been so many discussions about this topic, so I don't wanna go into deep. I love SGs, tone, playability and access...just a perfect rock machine. Here's my video playing both models head to...

    Rare Jimi Hendrix Covers

    Hi friends, Well yesterday we hopefully played our last online streaming gig! Just right before the gig we decided to put "Come On (Let The Good Times Roll)" and "Freedom" on the setlist. Man, I really look forward to playing live in front of an audience again and it seems it's gonna happen...

    Jimi Hendrix's Gibson Riffs were so cool!

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. We all know that Jimi was kinda unstable in his he could have easily played an entire gig with a Gretsch ;-) No kidding, there are some reference points in literature like Hendrix Sessions or Jimi Hendrix All Songs, which is the most detailed book on...

    Jimi Hendrix's Gibson Riffs were so cool!

    Sometimes I wonder to what extent Jimi would have used his Gibsons more often if he hadn't died so unexpectedly. I think that he composed mega cool riffs on his SG and Flying V and clearly went in a slightly different direction than on his Fender Strat. What are your favorite riffs from Jimi...

    J.D. Simo on a 1960 Les Paul

    If I remember correctly it was a Fender Dlx Reverb, pretty much dimed.

    J.D. Simo on a 1960 Les Paul

    Was lucky enough to catch Simo at a workshop, before the big Pestilence broke out. He’s playing an all original 1960 Les Paul here - not his own, I assume it was given to him for the Workshop. However, here are some fine tones I captured:

    Ready for some close vintage single coil tones...Mark Foley

    Looking for the vintage pre-CBS tone, yes yes I know ... I have now come across a "Number One" set by Mark Foley. In the boutique pickups set jungle there is of course hardly a reasonable overview and so you have to dare something at some point. The pickups really make an extremely good...

    RW vs RW: PRS Silver Sky vs Haar Custom Strat

    Hello friends, To complete the matter, I had to have the PRS Silver Sky Rosewood compete against a corresponding Rosewood Strat. You might have seen my Maple comparison. This time I used a Haar Custom Strat with Mark Foley Number One pickups. What do you say? I still find that the PRS just...
