Joe Bonamassa: Signature Les Paul Comparison

Joe Bonamassa is a man close to my heart. Not only is he an incredibly talented guitarist; not only is he working tirelessly to deliver some great blues and rock; not only is he a total guitar-geek but he was also the guy I presented with the first of my Haze BC-1 model guitars (yes, I do have to work it in to every conversation).  Top it all off with the fact that he’s a genuinely nice guy and you’ve got the total package.
And, speaking of total packages, Joe has …

Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul

You will, I’m sure have seen the Joe Bonamassa Les Paul from gibson. Quite nice, isn’t it? It’s also quite expensive.
But now, you can get the Joe Bonamassa experience from Epiphone. And it looks like it’s a well considered experience.
Based on the ’59 Les Paul, this Epi is constructed in the same manner. Solid mahogany and maple body with a long-tenon, glue in neck. Nice. It’s got the 50’s profile neck for Joe-friendly chunkiness.
Importantly, and very nicely, this Epiphone comes loaded with two Burstbucker pickups – a BB-2 …

FEAR NAVARRO. BUY NAVARRO’S GUITAR

I AM NAVARRO. TREMBLE, MORTALS, FOR I BRING YOU ROCK – ALBEIT NOW IN A MORE ACOUSTICY, THINKING MAN’S STYLE – AND LEATHER PANTS, AND… ERM… KITTENS. YES, I BRING KITTEN PILLOWS.
FEAR NAVARRO, MORTALS. FEAR HIM GOOD.
So it seems that Dave Navarro has worked with Epiphone to come up with a signature acoustic guitar.
And here it is. Decked out in scary black with a scary, ‘dead branches with crows’ pickguard and some scary hexagram inlays, this guitar will terrify any kitten you wish (except perhaps an evil kitten). …

Epiphone Introduces ProBucker

The pickup boffins over at Epiphone are introducing their latest, and greatest, pickup. This is the ProBucker.
The ProBucker is Epiphone’s version of Gibson’s BurstBucker (which is Gibson’s take on Gibson’s much-hallowed PAF). The ProBucker is made with bobbins that have been manufactured to the BurstBucker’s specs and with Elektrisola magnet wire (the same as that used by Gibson). The pole-piece slugs and screws are also to Gibson spec as is the nickel-silver alloy used in the covers.
The magnets used are Alnico II and the coils are scatter wound like …

To be in with a chance to win, you need to video yourself playing something on an Epiphone acoustic, upload it to somewhere on the net and submit the link to Epiphone. They’ll scrutinise them and carefully adjudicate (i.e. laugh at them) and the best one will be published on Epiphone’s own site …
