Meet Jenna, one Super Sexy Custom Strat

I just celebrated a birthday; and I bought myself a present ... a Strat like none other.  This beauty, Jenna, was custom crafted by Bobby Clark of BC Customs.  She’s not just a looker, either; she’s most definitely a player!  So, let me tell you all about this new gal of mine.  Her classily curvaceous body is made of Swamp Ash with a stunning quilted maple top, which gives her a very pleasant, resonant natural acoustic voice.  The Neck began its life as a 50’s "road-worn" that was scraped, sanded, and finished in nitrocellulose; the result is a neck that...

WGS Folks: as Cool as WGS Speakers

Ya’ll are awesome!  I have came to that conclusion after reading the entries from my current speaker give-away contest and checking out the latest posts on the Q&A forum.  I’m sure you have noticed that often on guitar related forums many of the posts sound like they were written by a totally ignorant 12 year old; complete with a bunch of choice swear words just to drive home the point.  However, you, the WGS folks are different!  It is said that good people attract good people; I think this is the case with WGS.  As far as the contest entries go ......

About Magnetic Attraction ...in speakers...

Happy Valentines day ya’all!  A perfect time to discuss magnetic attraction.  Surly you all know that magnetic forces are what actually enable a speaker to "speak".  In a nut shell, a variable electro-magnet (the voice-coil) operates in a permanent magnetic field (provided by the magnet you see on the back of the speaker). At this point I feel it is only fair to warn you that the relationship between the voice-coil and the permanent magnet is a tumultuous one.  For as you know, magnets not only have the power to attract one another, they can also repel; the varying...

The Dope on Speaker Dope!

If you are reading this blog, you have an affinity for speakers and tone that surpasses that of the casual guitarist.  You have no doubt encountered the term "doping" when researching speakers.  Some believe that doping creates monster speakers the way it creates monster Baseball all-stars.  This is one of those oft misunderstood areas which can approach smoke & mirror status.  So, let’s carefully enter the murky waters of speaker doping.  Put on your hip waders and READ ON! Right off the bat, let’s dispel some common myths and misunderstandings. ...

Yes, You CAN ! (Don't Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise)

Hello fellow lovers of superior sounds!  My blog today has left the tracks and is headed down a dirt road ... so LOOK OUT!  Last month I had the pleasure of doing a show with one of the finest singers I’ve ever worked with, Melinda Doolittle.  Dear God in heaven, how that girl can sing; I have goose bumps as I write this ... just remembering her performance on that evening in December.  For those of you unfamiliar with Doolittle, she’s the long-time American Idol background singer who came out of the background in 2009 to be a contestant; she almost won the thing...

The Making Of A (Tone) Star:

A few weeks back, I received an email from a WGS fan asking if I could do a video on just how the WGS speakers are made.  First the bad news: The short answer is no.  WGS uses a few very distinctive and proprietary techniques, and as much as they would love to go bragging to the world, some competitors might just seize the opportunity to do a little unauthorized "borrowing".  Now the good news: There IS a bunch I can disclose!  So, read on! Okay, so ... where to begin?  I guess I’ll begin where speakers begin, raw metal.  WGS does, of course have a...

2011 Year-in-Review: WGS Chooses Not To Participate In The Recession

Man, oh man was 2011 a GREAT year!  Now that might not be true for everyone everywhere, but it sure is true at WGS.  Yea, the national housing market spent the year in shambles, our federal government went another Trillion dollars in debt, and National unemployment was still stuck in the 10% range.  And sure it’s true that the EU is reeling from a spending spree on the part of some of its member states that might just bring the whole house of cards down.  Too bad the world’s leaders don’t follow WGS’s example. You see, our 2011 headline reads: WGS Chooses Not To...

A Very Merry Christmas to all!

Howdy folks!  It's Christmas eve; I've been under the weather and wrapped up in bed for the last few days ... but that's not been an entirely bad thing; it's given me some time to reflect on just how blessed I am.  First, when I get sick, it sure is nice to have a warm house with indoor plumbing and a comfy bed; and my wife is an absolute angel,  bringing me chicken-noodle soup and the like.  And of course there are the other wonderful members of my immediate family, my two precious redheads, my daughters Ashley and Callie; though separated by nearly two decades, those...

ET-65 ... Plays VERY well with others!

Man oh man does the ET65 mate well with other speakers!  There have been a few great conversations on the Q&A forum concerning the ET-65.  So good, in fact, that I believe they warrant a quick mention and review here!  I won’t reprint the entire threads, just a summary and a link.  Let’s get started with a brand-new conversation concerning a pairing of 2 ET-65’s and 2 Reapers in a 4x12 cab. Here is the quote that sums it up: “I am blown away at how DELICATE and SENSITIVE the combination is!  Even at high gain settings, notes and chords are still articulate...
