PG's Jordan Wagner's latest review featured in Premier Guitar's October 2009 issue is the BC Rich 40th Anniversary Eagle. Read the written review.

For the 40th collection, they chose to recreate the first four original electric guitar designs (Eagle, Bich, Mockingbird, Seagull) out of the innovative minds of Bernie Rico and his staff of designers.

Video Review - Fret King Green Label Corona 60 HB

July 20, 2009
PG's Bob Goffstein reviews the Fret King Green Label Corona 60 HB. In this video review, Bob walks us through the Corona HB's appointments and the things that it make different from a standard Strat. These differences include the integral neck, a humbucker in the bridge position, a "Wilkaloid" nut, the laminated plastic pickguard that features a "vintique gold 24 carat" design and the Wilkinson VSV High Performance Vibrato System. The VSV Vibrato system was a pleasant surprise for Bob who admits he's not a fan or regular user of vibrato systems.
