EVH Wolfgang Standard, a new affordable Wolfgang

When I first saw the Music Man Wolfgang about 20 years ago I have to admit I didn’t like it, actually I still don’t but then the body shape and headstock morphed for the next iteration, the Peavey Wolfgang and finally the EVH Wolfgang by which point I was hooked. I think the refinements Eddie & co. have made over the years make the Wolfgang one of the coolest looking guitars on the market, especially th ...

REVIEW: Devin Townsend – Z2

There are some albums that you just get straight away because they reveal everything about themselves right upfront. Devin Townsend’s albums have never been like that. There’s too much going on on a whole bunch of levels: emotionally, conceptually, orchestrationally, texturally. And there’s a lot to digest with Z2. It’s made up of two very different albums, Sky Blue and Dark Matters. Sky Blue is the Devin T ...

Sterling By Music Man JP70D

If you want to add a little of Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci’s sonic mojo to your tone – a rather worthy goal, if you as me – you could do a lot worse than to check out Petrucci’s line of signature guitars through Ernie Ball Music Man.

EVH Wolfgang Standard & Revamped Special

If I have one criticism of the EVH Wolfgang, it’s that, well… they’re infuriatingly priced at what they’re worth! They’re great guitars with killer tone and playability. And they look cool. But they justifiably cost a pretty penny, especially if you want the USA stuff. But now the Wolfgang Special series has been revamped as a made-in-Mexico model (it was previously made in Japan and then China, if I recall ...

Review: Nick Johnston – Atomic Mind

Atomic Mind is the third solo album from the super talented Canadian guitarist Nick Johnston. Nick has been carving out his own style of music for years and stands head and shoulders above a crowded landscape of instrumental guitarists as someone who is instantly recognisable. Nick has a certain sound not only when he is soloing but also when he is writing music, there are so many influences that come throu ...
