A few links for the weekend : gear news, demos, reviews, websites, controversies and fun… Things that I could have blogged, things that went under my radar !! Enjoy…
Gear Giveaway of the Week
As I missed last weeks round-up… The giveaway of the week is older than that actually but still online though. Fuzz Box Girl gives away a Retro Channel Fuzz Pedal… Just in case you still don’t know who Fuzz Box Girl is !
Guitar Fail of the Week
I like this one… Not only it is an ad for the heretic video game Rock Band but the dude behind this ad is probably totally stupid! He didn’t do his homework to say the least! A Rickenbacker 325 Rock Band Controller… Rickenbacker ? Imbecile !!
Who did they make such a mistake ? That’s a mystery !
Squier Releases the Jazzmaster J. Mascis
I had to read this several times… Yes… It is a Squier, and a very nice one! To date I think the only Jazzmaster Squier ever made was the Vintage Modified model. I think that’s the first time that they make a Squier Jazzmaster signature model, and I won’t suprise you if I tell you that I have to test this cheapie! It is announced at a $599 retail price.
Gibson Guitars Owners Won’t be in Trouble
I wrote a post about this topic earlier this week : The Gibson Crisis : The End of Made in the USA Guitars ? And now here is a clarification from the US Government : Nope, guitars owners won’t have any problems… They will just go after the companies who illegally import endangered species of woods.
