Fargen Amps Releases Two Custom Shop Amp Models
Live Edge Red Cedar - Custom 20

The Custom 20 is based on vintage brownface sounds and the 1959 Lead & Plexi is aimed at tones from the sixties.

Sacramento, CA (December 19, 2013) -- Fargen Amplification announced today expansion of its Custom Shop, to include unique one-off and limited edition amplifiers and pedals, not available as part of Fargen’s standard line.

These circuits are based on Ben Fargen's personal experience modding and building some of the finest amps over the last 15 years. Ben personally designs these dream amps, working with master craftsman Jeff Earl to hand-select incredible woods for the cabinets, which are hand-built to optimize tone.

“One of our first examples is our “Live Edge Red Cedar - Custom 20”, a one-of-a-kind amp inspired by vintage Brownface tones, and featuring a cabinet with natural log edges to retain the beauty of the natural lumber that was hand-selected for this specific piece” says Ben Fargen, founder.


1959 Lead & Bass Plexi

Another example is the “1959 Lead & Bass Plexi” model, also a one-of-a-kind amp, featuring AAAA Tobacco Sunburst Curly Maple and capturing the best of the 60's era gone, with some incredible tone and sustain. “I am combining incredible woods with unique circuits that I have designed over the years, to build some really, really special works of art. These are amps that achieve the pinnacle of tone, and make for a stunning addition to a guitarist’s collection” says Ben.

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.
