Buzz Feiten Guitars Unveils Gemini Series

The Gemini series features an Alder core with three different tonewood top options.

North Hollywood, CA (January 20, 2015) -- Buzz Feiten Guitars will be debuting its newest models, dubbed the “Gemini Series” at the 2015 Winter NAMM show, this week, January 22nd­ 25th, in Anaheim, California.

While retaining the design and shape of the original HS series, the Gemini Series adds a full sized humbucker in the neck position. The twin humbucker design will appeal to those players who prefer the fatter midrange and added output from the neck pickup. The Gemini Series will also include the proprietary, passive tone circuit, which switches the bridge pickup between series and parallel, while still maintaining the integrity of the guitar’s upper midrange frequencies.

Like the original models, the Gemini series features an Alder core, with three different tonewood top options; Swamp Ash, Flame Maple or Sugar Pine, each with it’s own distinct acoustic properties. Other options include several new colors, including Onyx, ‘59 Sunburst and a gorgeous Royal Blue. Custom color choices are also available and most orders can be fulfilled within four to six weeks. For an additional $100, they can also be ordered with a matching headstock, to add a touch of uniqueness to any Gemini Series guitar.

The company will showcase several of the new Gemini Series guitars at NAMM, along with it’s original five models. For additional information about the Gemini series, or any of the Buzz Feiten models, contact Joe Carletta at (818)508-­0070.

• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
