The Ultimate Poor Man’s Guide to Guitar Shows (10 Reasons Why You Should Go)

Most of you reading this blog probably live within a day’s drive of at least one annual guitar show.  You should go.  I know what you’re thinking, "those shows are only for folks with big bucks to spend", or maybe "it’s just too long a drive, it’s not worth it".  I her ya, in fact, I used to feel the same way.  Man was I wrong.  I’m blessed to live just outside of Nashville, TN, with several local and regional shows each year.  Even still, I always found reasons not to go to one.  Until a few years back; and now I’m hooked!  Let me tell you...

My Somewhat Unconventional take on Ideal Speaker Cabinet Size

Every now and then I am asked a question that directs my thoughts towards cabinet dimensions.  A good one just came in to the WGS Q&A forum.  When I get to thinking, I often get to blogging.  So ... let’s talk guitar speaker cabinet dimensions! First rule: there are no rules.  There are a plethora of "ideal size" cabinet calculators available.  Those are fine for some purposes, like for getting the most bass response in a certain frequency range out of a certain sub driver, but I personally don’t believe they have much to offer when we’re talking guitar...

Secret New WGS Speakers for 2013!

Today, ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the new models slated to be rolled out in early 2013. This first speaker is near and dear to my heart; we don’t have a for-certain name yet, for now we are simply calling it the low-power 12.  Here’s some history:  A few months ago, I heard a low-power boutique tube amp with a tome that simply took my breath away.  I can’t tell you the exact amp, but I can tell you that it was an exceptionally expensive boutique model that was only produced in extremely small quantities.  I can also tell you that...

The Fargen John Lennon Guitar Amp

Yesterday I was preparing my annual January blog on cool new WGS products when I received a commanding "stop the press" shout.  Actually, it was a text.  The text was from WGS production manager Dean Birdsong, from the floor of the big NAMM convention in California.  It contained the image you see here.  Okay, so it’s cool to see WGS guys Jason, David & Dean; but man, look at that amp!  Let’s talk about that amp. In a nutshell, this is one insanely cool piece of gear.  For all the details, I suggest you go to the Fargen Amps site.  Mr. Fargen...

The Ultimate Speaker Tonequest ... I need YOUR input!

So, my blogging has taken a bit of a backseat to life the last two weeks, but things are fixin’ to heat up!  I’m going to assemble a group of my fellow Nashville guitar tone affectionados for some serious black-belt speaker tone shootouts.  Will you all help?  I want some "outside" opinions.  Let me know what speakers YOU want to see compared.  I promise, we will get to as many as possible.  You can post your requests here as a response to this blog, on my YouTube channel, my Facebook page, or email me directly. Oh, and give us as much detail as...

Why Play Guitar?

Ladies, I apologize in advance: this blog is going to be written from a distinctly male perspective!  I’m taking the week off from my relentless pursuit of tone and speaker dissection to have a little fun.  Next week we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming; but for now, let’s kick back and have a little fun.  Ya ready? Okay guys, when it comes right down to it, why did you start playing guitar?  Be honest, to get chicks!  Right?  Dude, when I was 13, I was like human girl repellant.  I was barely over five feet tall, and was...

Lab Series L5, L7, & L9: the Ultimate Sleeper Amp?

Hey fellow ampaholics, my name is Vaughn, & I’ve got somthin’ to share with the group!  I’m a Big, Big, BIG fan of so-called "sleeper amps", you know, the amps that sound friggin awesome, but can be bought by the average working guitarist.  Hey, who doesn’t love them? In previous blogs I have featured the totally toneful, and surprisingly inexpensive Marshall Artist 3203, and the Randall RG80ES, the hands-down king of 80’s hair-metal tone.  Well, as promised, this week I’m blowing the dust off of what I believe is the best value in vintage amps available on...

Lab Series L7, Amp Blown, or Just The Speakers? (The big Rub)

Top of the mornin’ to ya!  It’s a fair sunny day in the south of the USA as I pen this blog.  If the sun’s not shinning where you are, I pray you have some light that shines from the inside out! I’m considering this blog to be the first in a two-part blog on my newly acquired Lab Series L7, a fine vintage solid-state 4x10 amp from the late 1970’s.  I was a kid just learning to play when the Lab Series amps were the "big thing".  They were used by a lot of big names back then, and they cost a heckuva lot more than the average guitar player could afford. ...
