With its “essentials only” approach and mod friendly construction (not to mention great tones), VHT’s Special 6 has generated a bit of a cult following. I gave it a very positive review with my only small concern being the amount of volume necessary to get significant breakup was g... [More]

As you’ve probably read before, I’m a sucker for a semi-hollow...and that goes double for thinline Tele style guitars. Something about the design reaches deep down into my soul and makes my heart skip a beat. So when Rondo recently added the Douglas Gravity NT FMP90 to its inventory...we... [More]
