Johnny Marr is best known as the strikingly dynamic guitarist-arranger-songwriter behind the Smiths, who redefined and ruled U.K. pop in the 1980s. A master of melody, layering and texture, Marr has brought his own instantly identifiable genius to the proceedings ever since, in stints with The The, the Pretenders, Modest Mouse and the Cribs—to say […]

This 2016 U.S.-made Jackson is the signature model for Misha Mansoor from Perhiphery.  It’s an excellent choice for the metal guitarist that needs a reliable 7-string with unparalleled playability and tone.  This model had a crack in the top horn that was repaired by our in-house guitar tech, and it’s been fully setup and serviced.  […]

Where's Wardle

After the long uncomfortable evening in Athens airport departures I slept through the short flight to Tel Aviv with Air Italia, waking only as we touched down early Sunday morning. I’d read that Israeli customs had the potential to be somewhat of an interrogation so was prepared for it to take a while to get […]

Far and Few

Garden of Steel (I) Dimni ah Wundah sat by the jutting metal wall, her hands bound in metal, and tried to listen to the metal man making strange sounds at her.  She was tired and hungry, always hungry.  The unnaturally bright lights hurt her shade-adapted eyes and the harsh stink of machines made her nose […]
