One of the first flight of Epiphone arch top models, the Olympic first appeared in 1932, and remained in the catalog until 1948. The Olympic has a true long scale neck suspended fingerboard, and is one of the early classics of Epiphone arch tops.
Yeah yeah, I know I’ve been far too quiet in recent times. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging, guys. ANYWAY, despite all that malarkey, I couldn’t let this freaky Hendrix-inpsired Strat/Flying V mutant axe that I just saw offered for sale on eBay go unmentioned.
I’m sure it’ll be sacrilege for some, but I’m no purist, I quite like it although perhaps not enough to warrant the tune of the US $2,430.00 Buy It Now price.
GIBFENDRIX…? You can almost hear the vulture squawks of the lawyers circling overhead.
From the company that invented the electric bass amp, the Fender Rumble Series is a mighty leap forward in the evolution of portable bass amps. With its beefier power amp and larger, ported speaker enclosure, the Rumble 25 pumps volume and deep bass response. In addition to standard volume and EQ controls, the Rumble 25 adds a newly-developed overdrive circuit and switchable Contour control, delivering gritty bite and slap-worthy punch at the mere push of a button.
The Hagstrom Select Series, Vintage Series, and UltraLux Series guitars recapture the original glorious Hagstrom style. They are built to the same stringent quality standards and feature Hagstrom’s exclusive technologies including the legendary H-Expander Truss Rod while introducing a number of new technological advances such as the Resinator Fretboard in order to guarantee that these are the finest guitars on the market.The Hagstrom Vintage Series HJ-600 Jazz Guitar is still the benchmark of fine guitar craftsmanship. The Maple body with Ply Spruce top and Maple Set Neck help make every inch of this guitar a jazz masterpiece. The fingerboard is made from Resinator wood with Hagstrom Pearl Block Position Marks. Resinator wood is more stable than any standard wood product. It is the perfect fingerboard material in that it eliminates wolf tones or hot spots, and it has a smooth, articulate sound. The H-Expander Truss Rod provides tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, and the rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The HJ-600 has dual Hagstrom HJ50 pickups. Other features are: Hagstrom 18:1 die cast tuning keys, 24.75 inch scale length, an Ebony Jimmy bridge with Hagstrom Trapeze tail piece, a 3-way pickup toggle switch, and 2 x volume/ 2 x tone.
Well, here’s a new thing from the folks at ghs strings – 5 string feel on a 4 string bass. ghs has released a “BEAD” tuning set of roundwound bass strings in their bass boomers range (nickel-plated steel). They say: Tuning a 4 String Bass BEAD (or, the lower 4 strings of a 5 string bass) […]

A guitar named for a street as big as the dreams it has inspired, the Epiphone Broadway still sets the standard for a jumbo jazz box. Still the largest at 17″, no one matches its full-range, big jazz tone. This Times Square monster is voiced by two Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups on an ample Maple body with Select Spruce Top, Rosewood fingerboard and floating bridge and is properly outfitted with an authentic Epiphone Frequensator split-trapeze tailpiece. She also features Gold hardware , “Tree of Life” headstock inlay and “Block and Triangle” Abalone inlay on the fingerboard.
For a lot of people, Joe’s Garage remains one of the most approachable of Frank Zappa’s works. Technically, a triple album when released on vinyl in 1979, it's long since been reissued as a double CD combining Acts I, II and III and clocking in at just under 2 hours.
Although the title track has the usual Zappa key and tempo changes, it has a catchy sing-along chorus and just the right amount of humor to not overwhelm the casual listener.
Zappa narrates the story as the “Central Scrutinizer,” providing the necessary explanations that keep the story moving along as Joe moves from Garage Band to degenerate rock star, a criminal and ultimately gives up on his musical dreams to worker at the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen Facility. It’s got the usual rock opera themes of dystopian society, music is illegal, yada yada yada. (In tribute to Zappa, we snuck in a few references to "Louie, Louie" in Underground Radio.
The lyrics range from profane (“Crew Slut”) to comical (“Why Does It Hurt When I pee?”) and occasionally profound:
Information is not knowledge
Knowledge is not wisdom
Wisdom is not truth
Truth is not beauty
Beauty is not love
Love is not music
Music is the best
Considering the album was released in 1979 against the backdrop of government censorship of rock music, it’s an appropriate and compelling social satire.
The album has several epic guitar solos and an occasional ‘70s disco-funk influence, but overall the album holds up. The penultimate song is the instrumental “Watermelon in Easter Hay” a signature Zappa song, that his son Dweezil regards as one of his father’s greatest solos. It’s a truly majestic piece of work, intended as the product of Joe’s tortured imagination. Here's a video of Dweezil Zappa playing it:
