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.

Rig Rundown - Black Label Society's Nick Catanese

July 14, 2009
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Chicago, IL, where he catches up with Black Label Society's guitarist, Nick Catanese. In this video segment, we talk all things gear, Nick's beliefs on effects and his big move from Washburn to PRS. Recently, Nick has started using PRS guitars and later this year they'll be coming out with his signature model that will feature a double-cutaway, a Floyd Rose trem and EMG pickups. For amps, in BLS he uses Marshall heads and cabs from Zakk Wylde's Wall of Doom and for his own project Speed X he uses Fuchs Viper 100 heads and Electro Voice cabinets. For effects, he uses his signature Fuchs distortion pedal, the Noxious, a Dunlop Rotovibe, BOSS Stereo Chorus, Dunlop wah wah and Morley Bad Horsey.

Video Review - Road Rage Pro Gear 8-Channel Looper

July 1, 2009
PG's contributor Tommy Bruner walks us through his latest Video Reivew for the Road Rage Pro Gear Triple Bypass 8-Channel Looper (read the Web-Exclusive review at, here). The 8-Channel looper comes with individual true-bypass loops, which means you can have a separate true-bypass loop for all your pedals and maybe a few loops left over for your future pedals, too. Not only does the looper clean up your sound and let each pedal retain its full tone, it is also a nice way to organize your pedals with one switching device. Each Road Rage True Bypass looper can be customized to fit your rig's needs.
