  1. The Gibson Burstdriver Standard

    Yesterday, 03:33 PM

    This was posted in the LP section but I thought it needed more attention :)

    A Custom Shop Les Paul Standard exhibits the finest in materials, construction and historical accuracy, making it one of the best sounding and playing electric guitars on the planet. Additionally, the innovative new Gibson Custom Burstdriver provides players built-in sonic expansion capabilities. Essentially a high-end analog overdrive pedal built into the backplate of the guitar, the Burstdriver is engaged with a quick tap of the push/push tone knob. A simple twist can transform the dry signal into anything from a fat clean boost to a warm, thick overdrive all the way to a snarling distortion. The effect is entirely true bypass and the level, tone, and gain controls can be adjusted using a guitar pick. The Gibson Custom Burstdriver Les Paul Standard is your new secret sonic weapon!

    The world is becoming a more and more eco–friendly place, and that consciousness has certainly found its way into the musical instrument industry. Companies like Wallace Detroit Guitars make instruments exclusively with reclaimed wood from its city's buildings, and bigger brands like PRS have released limited edition models with a similar mission.

    These kinds of projects are not just cool from a sustainability perspective, but also for the fact that off the bench, they already come with a unique vibe and history.

    This is especially the case with Fender's new, limited edition Front Row Legend Esquire line. Made in Fender's Custom Shop by Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov, these special Telecasters are built to order using 100–year–old Alaskan yellow cedar from the Hollywood Bowl's original bench boards.

    Since its official opening in the summer of 1922, the Hollywood Bowl has spent almost 100 years hosting some of the biggest acts of every decade. Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead, the Beach Boys, and Black Sabbath are just a smattering of the talent that has graced the Bowl's stage, and now, you can own a functional piece of its history.

    Shishkov maintained the characteristics of each piece of bench board that he used, with all of its original scratches, cracks, and bolt holes. The top of each guitar will also feature the original seat number.

    We know that these guitars will be extremely limited and will fetch $12,000 a piece, but we have yet to find out how many orders the Custom Shop is accepting.
