PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the WhiteBox Engineering room. In this segment, we get the scoop from Douglas White on what the new company is all about. WhiteBox builds high-quality, custom guitar cabinets in USA and markets them through the company's online store. Customization of the WhiteBox product range only starts with the colors and fabrics available -- the more important customization comes from the ability to choose from a wide range of speakers. WhiteBox offers the highly-popular Vintage 30 and G12K-100 from Celestion, but they specialize in Eminence Speakers -- of which they offer nearly every model. WhiteBox went online in September 2010, with three products in the Modern Series at launch, and several other configurations and styles in development. The Modern Series cabinets are made from 13-ply 18mm Baltic Birch and feature convertable rear panels for open, semi-open, or closed-back performance. The Modern Series currently offers 1x12, 2x12, and 4x12 cabinets, all available either loaded or unloaded.

All artists copy, but reinterpretation is where the magic lies.

While I have a special place in my heart for the classics, I yearn for reinterpretation that wears its reverence for the past on its sleeve but doesn’t just feel like an imposter. In my own instruments, I try to pay homage to the vintage guitars that inspired me to play, design, and build. That will never change. But it also doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate and even adore new things. This sentiment is true for both guitars and the music they make. Hybrid mashups have existed forever, and a lot of what people think of as original musical examples are in fact reinterpretations of something they just didn’t know previously existed.
