The six new models are handcrafted in Austin, Texas using American sourced materials.

Austin, TX (October 4, 2017) -- Iron Age has unleashed the latest in boutique handcrafted guitar picks. This time in an imperial Roman theme with tones ranging from razor sharp, to bold & brazen. The looks are nothing less than majestic & each features its own aqua-glow signature accent.

The Imperial Series guitar picks are focused on three simple characteristics: grip, tone, & comfort. And with six unique models (including jazz-style picks, rounded tips, & large tri-picks), there's something for any discerning guitarist to experience.

All picks are handcrafted in Austin Texas using American sourced materials. The idea of using such acrylic based soley on the "grip" characteristic was already long established in the knife making industry. It was a premium material used to make grip handles. Iron Age was simply inspired by the idea & sought to craft its finest yet.

Highlights:

  • Available in six totally unique models
  • Illuminating "aqua-glow" accents for each model
  • Produce tones ranging from mellow, to bold, & with plenty of presence
  • Handcrafted for a fine playing experience & effortless glide across the strings

All Imperial Series picks are available exclusively from the Iron Age online store. Prices span from $20 to $25 each, depending on model. Worldwide shipping is available

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
