Summer NAMM '10 - Wechter Guitars Pathmaker Demo

June 24, 2010
PG's Andy Ellis is On Location in Nashville, TN, for the 2010 Summer NAMM show where he visits the Wechter Guitar booth. In this segment, we get to check out their first solidbody model--the Pathmaker SB Maple.

The Pathmaker SB Maple is a new solidbody from Abe Wechter, a luthier known for his forward-thinking acoustic designs. Equipped with dual Seymour Duncan humbuckers and Graph Tech's Ghost Acoustiphonic saddle-pickup system, this versatile guitar can move from scorching leads to shimmering, quasi-acoustic timbres with a flick of switch. Particularly exciting: It's the first production guitar to offer Seymour Duncan's Triple Shot pickup mounting rings, which have two mini switches that allow you to turn each coil on or off. As a result, you can quickly put the 'buckers in series, parallel, or a tapped single-coil configuration.

NY Amp Show '10 - Bludotone Amps Hi-Plains Drifter

June 24, 2010
PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Bludotone Amp room. In this segment, we get to check out their newest amp--the Hi-Plains Drifter.

The Hi-Plains Drifter is a single-channel, 150-watt amplifier with spring reverb designed for the bluesy rock players of the SRV and Eric Johnson school. Bludotone's Brandon Montgomery describes the amp's tone as "going from a sparkly, spankin' clean to a medium roar overdrive, but still retaining the guitar's original tone. Even though the amp is 150 watts, it still produces those overdriven tones at a reasonable volume... it doesn't have to be loud, but it sure likes to be loud."

It's very easy to use, and tunes very quickly and accurately. The bridge comes installed on the Fret King Super-Matic, but will also be available for all manufacturers to install in their models.
