Keokuk, IA (May 1, 2013) -- Adding to our line of custom acoustic guitars, Jon Kammerer is happy to reveal the latest versions of acoustic guitar and bass, the feedback resistant Pegasus series. The main feature of this body style is the elongated sound hole that isolates the top plate of the instrument. This allows for it to resonate more, as it is not bound to the edges of the guitar, accomplishing two things: reduced feedback, and a more resonant top plate that transfers sound directly to the under-saddle pickup system. The key to this breakthrough was literally reinventing the acoustic guitar. Traditional acoustics work like a bellows, pumping air, but inducing a feedback loop when plugged in. The Pegasus series frees the top from the rest of the body allowing the strings to freely vibrate the top plate, but stopping the bellows action that causes the feedback loop, especially in lower frequencies. Other features of this guitar include:

  • 24 fret, compound radius fret board that is fully accessible to the 24th fret.
  • Double cutaway body
  • L. R. Baggs pickup system
  • Extremely comfortable, lightweight body that you will want to play for hours.
  • Multiple free options as each guitar is custom built.
  • Free case included with guitar

All Jon Kammerer guitars are personally built by Jon Kammerer in Keokuk, Iowa. Suggested retail prices for the Pegasus models range between $2,000 and $2,800, with street prices ranging from $1,750 to $2,500.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

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.
