If Ya Only Had ONE Modeler to Gig Direct With, Which One Should You Choode

Hi guitar friends!  Last week we discussed two great options for the ONE amp you can bring to a gig and need NOTHING else.  Check that blog out!  But these days we often are not even allowed an amp, we must play "direct" listening via in-ear monitors.  Now, a decade or so back this was like a death sentence, but these days it's really a cool option once you get used to it.  I'll discuss actually USING in-ears next week, but for now, let's talk about the one singular piece of gear you can place at...

If You Could Only Have ONE Amp in 2022 to Cover All Ground - Which Amp Should It Be?

Okay fellow guitar slingers.  So it's a weird, wild new world out there for all of us who want to still be on stage doin our thang.  In fact, it's downright rough, most certainly it's not for the faint of heart! And, for those of us who are still trying to get out and play some club gigs from time to time, the new rule is: whenever you can, press the "easy" button.  And for most of us that means bringing only ONE versatile guitar and amp and nuttin' else, one in one hand one in the other in and out like...

How To Get Started Playing The Guitar The RIGHT Way

So, last week I blogged all about how important music was for a person's mind, body and soul.  But lets say someone asks you (maybe because you play guitar) how THEY can get started playing guitar.  I've been asked this question a thousand times ... often by parents wondering how best to launch their child into the wonderful world of musicianship. Photo courtesy of Elsie Ecklund, check out her freaking awesome YouTube channel! I'm asked so many times that I've totally got the answer :-)...

Being a Musician Makes you Better, Smarter, And Even More Attractive and Likeable!

Playing guitar saved my life.  I know ... the Oscar for best dramatic lead goes to me!  But it just may be true.  From the early teen days when the bullies just LOVED to pick on me, right up until the horror of WHATEVER the heck has been going on in the world the last couple of crazy years (late 2020 to early 2022).  Can you say "stay at home" (all the freaking time)??  I am WAY too industrious and conscientious to sit at home and play video games, so man am I glad I had guitars to play and learn on...

When to rewind or rebuild a guitar pickup and when to replace it

Hey again fellow guitar geeks, I love ya each and every one!  So over the years I have re-wound a great many guitar pickups, and I pride myself on being the guy who can rewind ANYTHING!  Speedbumps, Filter'Trons, Hi-Li'Trons, Goldfoils, one-off Japanese made weird pickups from the 70's, yep!  Sure I do the typical Strat, Tele, Humbucker, and P-90 rebuilds too, but I ain't afraid of any pickup.  Hadn't met one that I couldn't fix yet. So, you might expect me to advise you always rebuild a pickup rather...

A Techs HONEST Review of a PRS Silver Sky SE - The BEST Review you will find!

Howdy Guitar gang!  Sorry if it's been a while since I posted here, I cut the heck outta my hand a couple weeks back and it really slowed down my progress.  No playing ANY instrument, no making pickups, and no blogging!  But I'm sufficiently healed and ready to rant!  This rant is on the PRS Silver Sky.  As most of you know, I've became somewhat of a PRS pickup upgrade expert, at least where the humbuckers are concerned.But a few weeks ago I had a client send me his brand new Silver Sky for a...

Potted vs un-potted guitar pickups, the pros and cons

Hey fellow guitar tone lovin' Guys n Gals!Ready to jump into a hot topic ... err, literally, like a hot vat of wax?  Let's talk about wax-potting pickups, and what it does.  Sound downright exciting?  If so, then yep ... you are a certified guitar-tone connoisseur! Let's "jump in" :) First the history, if you've read my blogs much, you know I LOVE the history behind all these little guitar tone innovations.  When the world was dark, and yet without shape and form ... okay, I'm going a bit toooo far...

Anico Pole-Pieces vs Pole Screws in Pickups - Tele or Strat Style

Howdy guitar gang!  So I had a request come in that got me to thinking ... thinking that maybe this is some info that ALL tone connoisseurs need to know!  So here goes.  Here is the Question: "Hey Vaughn!   I’m putting together a Telecaster from used parts. I’ll need pickups for it, and wondered I’d adjustable pole pieces were available for the bridge pickup.  Thanks!" And my Answer: "No, that's never anything I've even played with as it would necessitate...

Guitar Players - Once Again I urge You To Play at Church

So, you all have heard me say it before, but in these days of Covid crap almost obliterating the live music industry, it's more important than ever!  You see, all through this supposed crisis, I've kept playing almost every weekend.  How?  I play at several Churches.  Guitar, bass, and drums, depending on the need.  And man it's a blast.  Of course, it doesn't hurt that I'm in Nashville, an area just brimming with full-on Pro level musicians, so my band-mates are almost always exceptional people to play...

The Best Gift For a Guitar Player or Any Musician

The Best Present / Gift for ANY Guitarist or Musician. Howdy Gang!  As Christmas time rolls around once again, I've been really sad (I'm one of those who always gets this way at the holidays).  Why?  Well you see, over my decades long marriage, my wife never enjoyed hearing me play or sing; not even some classic Christmas Carols at Christmas time.  Yep, seriously. When I was still a single guy, all the girls I dated LOVED to sit and marvel at my incredible talent, or at least they did a good job of pretending to :)...
