Guitar Review

Welcome to Guitar Review! My name is John and I love Guitars! While I’ve played many instruments in my life (piano, trumpet, violin), the one thing that has remained constant is guitar. I first learned on classical guitar in high school and college, but have played electric from that time until today as well. Basically 30+ years~!

This blog is a compilation of reviews, thoughts, gear adoration, research, things other musicians have told me about, along with a bunch of experience I’ve picked up along the way. I think that music is unlike nearly anything else. If you love technology – you love technology. But you can use music with or without it. There are so many options – analog, digital, wifi, bluetooth, wireless, everything from DAW online collaborations. I am constantly amazed at the merging of all these things, along with innovative new products that just plain change the game.

I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing! If there’s something you’d like to see reviewed, or something you think I should know about – please let me know.

Currently I enjoy my Fender Telecaster with Lil ’59 pickup, my Gibson SGM (an SG with Minitune on it), and my EVH Wolfgang Special (made in China version I believe). I also have an Ibanez Artcore I go back to every now and again.

I love my Joyo OCD clone, Route 66, and Xotic EP pedals, and I’m very partial to my .009 EVH strings (that never – ever, ever break and sound terrific!). Currently I play through my Max Butler Swamp amp, that is basically a hot-rodded Bassman clone clocking in around ~65 watts.

This is a pic of me taking delivery of my Max Butler Swamp amp from Max a few years back when he was still alive. Learn more about them at www.MaxButlerAmps.com:
