A collaboration between the design team at Hagstrom and the Swedish band Ghost, the Hagstrom Fantomen transports their legendary playability and technical excellence into a new, edgier realm. Hagstrom started with an elegantly asymmetrical solid-mahogany body and joined a mahogany neck using the classic mortise-and-tenon neck joint system. Of course, since it’s a Hagstrom, the Fantomen uses the H-Expander truss rod and Resinator fingerboard, providing the ultimate in playing surface stability and optimal tonal enhancement. Together, these components create an incredibly stable, resonant and responsive sonic foundation.

This past Saturday, June 29th, Paul Reed Smith joined the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) to celebrate the opening of the “Wire & Wood: Designing Iconic Guitars” exhibition – the Museum’s latest installment. Paul Reed Smith helped to kick off the celebration with a special lecture on guitar design and a performance with noted designer and artist Ken Carbone.
The new exhibition, which profiles Smith and PRS Guitars’ unique guitar designs, explores the basics of design and construction, while also examining ways that musicians have used the instrument to shape their public images. The exhibition features a dozen iconic guitars and shares the stories of why they have become so well recognized.
Curated and designed by W. Todd Vaught, who brings over 20 years of experience in multi-disciplinary design, management and storytelling, Wire & Wood couples foundational design with engaging musician commentary to pose the question: does form follow function, or is image king? The exhibition presents the guitar in its most minimal form, asking viewers to consider how simple and traditional design elements such as instrument shape and species of wood affect sound. The exhibition surveys advancements in luthiery, including mass manufacturing and alternative materials, and shares the stories behind how some of the 20th century’s most famous guitars reached their status. On display through September 29, Wire & Wood also studies the relationship between instrument and player, showcasing an impressive lineup of legendary guitars played by famed musicians and performers, including PRS Artist, Orianthi. On display is Ori’s Blood Splatter Custom 24, which she has used on world tour with Alice Cooper.
Wire & Wood is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs and Wire & Wood Alpharetta Songwriters Festival. Please visit www.museumofdesign.org/wire-and-wood for museum hours and to learn more.

The Epiphone PRO-1 acoustic guitar collection is designed by professionals to be EASY TO PLAY! Decades in the making, all “PRO-1″ guitars have features that make them a joy to play.
This bundle from Ashthorpe features a top-quality acoustic-electric guitar (can be played “Acoustic” without an amplifier, or “Electric” with an amplifier, not included). The guitar body is finely crafted from top-quality (A-grade) tonewoods; Spruce on top for its superior resilient and musical qualities, and Basswood (similar to Alder) is used for the back and sides for optimum tonal response and warmth. The underside of the soundboard is X-braced for superb structural integrity. The neck is constructed from marine grade Okoume which is extremely strong and balanced. The body is a full size (41″) cutaway design, meaning the guitar body near the neck is cut back to allow easier access to the upper frets, making for more comfortable play. This guitar is thinline (3″ thick) which combines unparalleled sound with great looks in a lightweight package. An integrated 4-band pickup equalizer with volume control knob gives you full tonal control when plugged into an amp (not included), and features adjustment slide controls for bass, mid-range, treble and presence. Two sets of high-quality strings are included (1 set pre-installed, just tune and play; and another set as a spare). These are made from stranded steel cores wound with stainless steel and phosphor-bronze and are coated with a proprietary anti-rust coating. They’re built-to-last and sound great, with a full and perfect blend of warm and bright tones. Professional finishing touches include premium diecast chrome tuning pegs and gorgeous high-gloss finish. The complete set includes the 41″ cutaway thinline guitar, soft gig bag, 3 celluloid guitar picks (.46mm, .71mm and .81mm thick), on-board pickup EQ, instrument cable, shoulder strap and owner manual.
An exquisite high-end Telecaster experience awaits the player who gets his hands on a Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH. First, it looks phenomenal, with a carved flame maple top on a mahogany body, cream body binding, a gorgeous Amber finish with a matching headstock, a mahogany set neck, abalone dot fingerboard inlays and black hardware. Second, it sounds phenomenal, with dual Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, three-way pickup switching, a push/pull coil tap switch built into the master tone control knob, and more. A decidedly non-traditional Telecaster of peerlessly crafted style and powerful sonic substance.
The Peavey 03452400 RX 22 / 22XT diaphragm kit is a combined replacement diaphragm kit for RX and 22XT high frequency drivers. The RX 22/22XT diaphragm kit includes ferrofluid, 22XT spacer gasket, 22XT mounting screws, installation instructions, and material safety data sheet.
Learning how to play the acoustic guitar is one of the best lifestyle choices you could make, and an excellent instrument to dedicate your time to – one that can lead to wonderful things.
To learn the instrument, as a beginner on a budget, buying something expensive is not necessary. Instead, it’s worth opting for a beginner’s guitar or a convenient and affordable combo pack.

Note: Please being careful to not over tighten any of the strings while doing so, and be patient. Once through all the strings, start back at the top and do it again – new strings will take several tunings over a period of at least a day or two before they are taught and can hold their tone.
