M & D International and C & J Distributing join forces to expand Hutchins Guitars in the US
The Hutchins Guitars dream began in 1996 when Gary Hutchins of the UK envisioned a series of guitars that combined classic vintage styling with 21st century technology. Gary, heavily involved in the recording and producing industry, had a pretty good understanding of what he wanted from his products, but it wasn''t until he teamed up with Allen Entwhistle, genius inventor of ATN (Advanced Tonal Network), that the ideas really took off. Allen and Gary met, shared ideas and Hutchins Guitars was born. These Eastern made beauties represent more than four decades of classic body designs with today''s technology--a rare combination now available in the US.
The most recent addition to the Hutchins collection is the “Memphis Rose” model. This Gretsch-like instrument features a mahogany hollow body with flame maple top. The maple neck adds strength for heavier strings and has a rosewood fingerboard. The neck is also set using a dove-tail joint with 22 medium frets. The inlays are Mother of Pearl pyramid shapes. The nut width is 1 11/16” and the scale is 24 ¾” allowing heavier strings to produce a slinkier feel. The electronics include two retro single coil pickups, one master volume, two individual pickup volumes, a pickup selector switch and a three-position tone selector switch. The tailpiece is a Bigsby B70 and the bridge is fitted with string rollers to reduce detuning when the Bigsby is used. This elegant instrument also comes with a British tweed hard-shell case. Rose Red Stain is the available finish for the exquisite “Memphis Rose”. Delivery is expected in the U.S. in mid to late-October. The retail of the Memphis Rose is $1300 including the hard-shell tweed case.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
