A pedal builder collaborates with his pal, guitar tech John Taggart, on a chambered guitar with a built-in overdrive.

Name: Greg Droman
Hometown: Healdsburg, California
Guitar: Karmatar

My friend, John Taggart, is an A-list guitar tech to the stars: Waddy Wachtel, John McVie, Carlos Rios, Paul Gilbert, Bruce Conte, and many others. His true passion is building guitars, literally from scratch, including the necks. Several months ago, he told me he wanted to build us each a guitar incorporating an overdrive pedal I make and sell—the Karma MTN-10, a clone of the Ibanez Mostortion from the early '90s. I've seen and admired John's work, and I was thrilled to help with the design of the circuit for them.

The two have a flowing conversation about Teti transitioning onstage from baritone to Tele (with the help of a Pitch Fork), explaining why the Peavey 5150 II is his benchmark for amps, and detailing why he can never have enough reverb or bizarro note benders.
