Gibson N-225 Review

Gibson's Fine Ear Gibson, to whom we own a lot of legendary guitars, decided to introduce several months ago a guitar with an original shape (something that doesn't happen every day): the N-225. With a hybrid look halfway between the SG, Les Paul standard and the ES series, we just couldn't resist it... read more…

Gibson SG Standard with Min-ETune Review

Not So standard! The SG Standard is a legendary guitar that doesn't need an introduction. It's one of Gibson's best sellers, played by some of the best guitar players like Angus Young, Pete Townshend and Franck Zappa to name just a few. But the SG we have here is a bit special because it features the Min-ETune system for automatic guitar tuning! Let's look into the details... read more…

Yamaha Pacifica PAC611HFM Review

Let's Sail together! Pacifica — a name that recalls the beach, the ocean, the sun. If you like sailing, following the wind for hours armed only with your courage and a fishing-rod, you'll be disappointed by the present review: this is not a hunting/fishing magazine! We review today a guitar designed by Yamaha Guitar Development Hollywood that has been on the market since 1990. It's been 22 since the first Pacifica came to the world and I look forward to discovering the features of the new generation. It's my ocean quest! read more…

Hufschmid Helldunkel Strat Inspired 6 String (Hufschmid Guitars - Helldunkel model 6 string)

By Sal Tine, 23/07/2019
This is the second guitar I had custom built for me by Patrick Hufschmid, the luthier and artisan from Aigle, Switzerland. Patrick proves that old world craftsmanship and top quality are alive and well... AMAZINGLY THEY ARE ENTIRELY HAND CRAFTED, NO CNC MACHINES ARE USED TO MAKE THESE! After I received my first Hufschmid guitar, I played it extensively. I HAD many other guitars of various brands, but I always gravitated to my Hufschmid. I realized that was because the Hufschmid guitar had a playability and feel, and a sound, that I couldn't match with any other guitar I owned. I decided I wanted another. Patrick and I spoke and it was decided that he would hand build a strat inspired guitar, with the Hufschmid signature appointments. I absolutely loved the look of my Tantalum, which is made of Sapele mahogany, one of the Hufschmid signatures, so this too would be Sapele. The look, feel and most importantly the SOUND of this wood is incredible. When I received the guitar, it too, like my 1st Hufschmid, was INCREDIBLY RESONANT. It sustains for an exceptionally long time and the entire guitar vibrates like nothing else when you play it. The neck shape, like my first Hufschmid, is perfectly comfortable in my hand... I find this to be amazing as Patrick HAND CARVES each neck according to a picture of the players hand, and his fretwork is meticulous. The craftsmanship is flawless. Patrick designed an amazingly unobtrusive neck heel, and this guitar is incredibly comfortable in every aspect. The specifications are as follows:
One piece premium perfectly quartersawn Sapele mahogany neck and body, FSC certified
Premium FSC certified West African ebony fretboard, 24 frets
25.5" scale, 12" radius
Exclusive Hufschmied "Blue Nut"
Hipshot hardware
Dunlop 500K sealed Super Pots
NOS Russian FT-2 Teflon Capacitor
Glow in the dark side dots
Made to measure Hufschmid pickups, Dark flame maple texture with the script "H " logo
Golden cast headstock " wax seal"
Antique nickel finish Hufschmid Logo coin on the rear of the body
Hufschmid "3D Kevlar" control cavity design
15 coats of hand applied oil based varnish
Clear aerospace grade cell cast cross-linked acrylic control cavity cover, recessed
As I said, this is my second build from Patrick Hufschmid and I am ONCE AGAIN BLOWN AWAY. This guitar is incredible and surpassed my every expectation. Patrick managed to create yet another guitar, that is to me, PERFECT. I no longer want to play anything else and my collection of guitars is being sold off. If you are looking to own a guitar that is unique and innovative, one that sounds incredible and feels effortless to play, request a build slot from Patrick Hufschmid. I am a professional guitar tech and a player of 40 years, Hufschmid guitars are the best I've ever seen.

Hufschmid Guitars Tantalum Blue Burst (Hufschmid Guitars - Tantalum)

By The4thlast1, 25/07/2019
I wanted to share my thoughts on the guitar that Patrick Hufschmid built for me recently.  I noticed Hufschmid guitars a few years back online and then more recently a friend of mine ordered one. He has been so blown away by his Hufshmid that I decided to order one myself and am very pleased I did.

I am very picky when it comes to guitars and a lot of instruments I've owned do not last long with me. I end up selling or trading most of them , I have only held on to a few guitars that I found to be the best sounding and playing. To make a long story short the Hufschmid exceeded my expectations.

At the top of my check list is the way a guitar sounds and responds as being most important.  Obviously pickups and electronics come into play and I'm pleased with what patrick uses in that regard but Im talking about the core tone of the instrument before adding anything. If the guitar is a winner then the electronics are icing on the cake. When my Hufschmid arrived the tone was killer right out of the box . Great clarity and sustain. Most importantly the natural eq curve is just right, present mids,  no piercing or thin highs, thick tight bass. Everything I look for in tone is there.

The next thing that is very important to me is how the neck on a guitar feels .Patrick requested a picture of my hand so he could shape the back of the neck to match. He really was spot on with the carve because it feels excellent , like I'm at home on it. The fret work is also top notch , Im very happy with how the guitar plays , every note rings full and clear with no buzzing !

So last on my list would be cosmetics. Patricks designs caught my eye right off the bat. In general I like super strat shapes and his take on that style is right up my ally. I sent him a picture of a blue burst color that I like and he was able to replicate it over a figured quilt top that came out great.

I would recommend a Hufschmid to anyone looking for a custom buit masterpiece !

Used, mint condition Peavey Firenza P90 electric guitar (Peavey - Firenza)

By Maguchi, 05/08/2019
Bought an excellent condition, barely used, USA made Peavey Firenza P90 with original hardshell case for $330 about a month ago. I can't put it down. Plugged it into a turn of the century American made Peavey Delta Blues with a 15" speaker. Great tone, the P90 pickups made by Gotoh are clear and thicker than a Fender single coil when played clean and distorts easily and tonefully.

Love the feel of the medium thickness of the neck, has a fairly flat 15" radius fretboard that feels a little different, but I got used to it pretty quick. Hangs balanced off the strap. Tuning machines feel solid and stay in tune even after heavy bending of strings. The tuneomatic bridge and the stopbar tailpiece were both recessed. Kind of an unusual design but had no problems with it. Maybe this was an early attempt by Peavey to make the bridge and tailpiece more solid a la tonepros, but that is just speculation on my part.
