Amps That Don't Exist - Part Two!

Okay, so in last weeks blog I started out this little series with my 1959 Brown Fender Super Amp, which was featured in the October issue of Vintage Guitar Magazine, and will be featured in Dave Hunter’s upcoming vintage amp book.  Yea, yea, I know even though that amp never "officially" existed, it obviously was made by Fender and so, it sorta does exist.  This week’s amp really never has existed anywhere ... except for the one I have, of course!  Ladies and Gents, I present to you the 1965 blackface Fender Bassman 1-12 combo, most definitely the best sounding 1-12...

Our latest FREE SPEAKER Winner!

Congrats to our latest speaker winner,  Ed Dewit of Chuckey, TN (such a place could only exist south of the Mason-Dixon line).  Ed is an amp builder and a hard-core tone aficionado - in other words, he’s one of us!  Chucks main rig is a JTM45 style amp he built for himself (my favorite of all Marshall’s).  Chuck is getting a free Green Beret, and chose to add a second one to the one we are giving him. The JTM 45 through those Green Berets will be pure vintage Britt tone!  Ed sent us a brief note, that I’d like to share with you all, so read on! From Ed:...

Amps That Don’t Exist - Part One: 1959 Brown Fender Super Amp

Amps that don’t exist, you ask?  Yea, sorta.  I’m starting out this little series with my 1959 Brown Fender Super Amp, which was featured in the October issue of Vintage Guitar Magazine, and will be featured in Dave Hunter’s upcoming vintage amp book.  Fender didn’t officially release any of the "Browns" until 1960, but this one bears a 1959 tube chart circuit designation, and all 1959 dated components ... so, officially, it doesn’t exist.  Interested, then read on! With its 5G4 circuit designation, this particular amp, with a serial number of 00031 has one...

Insider info: New Speakers for a New Year

Hey fellow tone seekers!  You have probably figured out by now that WGS has a philosophy of keeping the line fairly small, and having every speaker sound great.  We are definitely not one of those speaker companies that have hundreds of speaker models that all sound mediocre yet boast catchy names and gimmicks (you know who I’m talking about).  Shoot, we would rather make only one speaker and have it sound amazing than have a thousand mediocre models!  As such, any new additions to the WGS line-up are in fact big news.  So ya wanta hear some big news? ...

Presenting Callie Elisabeth Skow!

Hey ya all!  Callie, daughter #2, came into this world yesterday, Thursday, January 6th.  She's a little heartbreaker, and I'm sure she'll have me wrapped around her little finger in no time at all.  Kim and Callie are both doing fine, and should get to come home tomorrow!

Meet the Wacky WGS Bunch!

Hi everybody!  Hope you survived the holidays in one piece.  My wife and I are expecting a new baby, a girl, within the next 36 hours; so our REAL Christmas present is arriving a little after Christmas!  I’ll keep you all informed as that unfolds.  Now on to this weeks blog!  I thought it would be good for all of you out there to get to know all of us in the WGS family a little better.  Daniel, the newest (and maybe craziest) member of the WGS team came up with the following bios.  In keeping with Daniel’s crazy style, I added my own to the end of...

Vaughn’s Christmas Blog

I’m writing this Sunday eve, the night after Christmas.  I’ve been to four church services and a half-dozen or so more church events in the last week or so.  These days, a lot of the guitar playing I do is in church.  I guess that’s what stage of life I’m in; I bet some of you out there are no different, right?  I’ve come full circle.  Church is where I started playing, in a land far, far away from my current home in Nashville TN - in the frozen north; not far from Lake Wobegon, MN.  It was just before Christmas, 30-some years ago I received my first...

God's tone?

How exactly does one go about drinking from the Holy Grail?  This is our topic this week.  A couple of weeks back, I received an email from a WGS user asking for my advice on which WGS speakers to use with his amps which are "clones of the Liverpool and Express circuits of the late Ken Fischer of Trainwreck Amps".  Though I personally have never owned one, I’ve had the pleasure of playing through one actual Trainwreck, and a couple of more-or-less Trainwreck clones.  I can say that these amps are certainly wonderful, and that they really have a unique character....
