The final step in the birth of an electric guitar.

Mundelein, IL (May 8, 2008) - In this video you''ll see a painted, buffed guitar go through the final assembly and set-up process. It begins with a custom guitar for the band Kataklysm as its Tone Pros bridge posts are installed. A number of guitars fresh off the set-up line are checked out up close, including a Washburn PS-9000 Gold Top, a Parker Four Seasons RFMV, a Washburn WM526B (HM series) with a Zakk Wylde set-up and a top-of-the-line WI90B.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
