Shredder Search Down To 15


The good folks at Dean Guitars are proud to announce the Shredder Search is dwindling down. Today, the contest has been narrowed down to 15 finalists--each has their video uploaded to Dean Guitar's site.

McCartney Embraces Inner-Woman


Sir Paul is set to release another Fireman album. For the first time, the side-project features McCartney lyrics and vocals. But that's not the oddest thing regarding Electric Arguments. Prior to stepping into the recording booth, Sir Paul changed his name to Gladys Jenkins. Go here for more details on Sir Paul's momentary transformation.

Zoybar Platform Produces Stringed Instruments


Here's something you've never seen before. Seriously. Zoybar has developed this guitar-looking device that allows players to manipulate sounds from several stringed instruments. In addition, you have the option of using some sort of add-on touch pad to produce noises. The touch screen sits where a bridge andĀ pickups are on traditional guitars. Don't believe us, go here and check out some videos.
