Premier Guitar August 2014: Yes, it’s time once again for our annual Amp Issue! To start things off, we celebrate the tones and history of five of the most influential guitar amps of all time. We’ve also got a rad DIY project where we compare two Marshall-style 18-watt amp kits, and we take a look at Gibson’s forgotten gem, the vintage GA-5. Artist interviews this month include Judas Priest, Fu Manchu, Sharkmuffin, and Aram Bajakian. And gear reviews include the Electro-Harmonix Lumberjack Log Overdriver, Rivera Venus Deux, Gibson J-15 and J-29, Ibanez TS808DX, Lovepedal Hi Volt, Keith McMillen SoftStep 2 MIDI, Ruokangas Mojo King, Fender America Deluxe Dimension Bass IV HH, Juliet Collective Orangecream, Korg Rimpitch tuner, Born OG Carve, MXR Uni-Vibe, and Reverend Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship bass.
