Vick Audio Reissues the Lucky No. 13

The circuit is based on a classic fuzz from the '60s but adds more gain and a modern EQ curve.

Gilbert, AZ (August 26, 2020) -- Vick Audio, a company that specializes in reproductions of out of production and original guitar effects is excited to announce the re-release of the Lucky No. 13 fuzz pedal.

Vick Audio is bringing it back the Lucky No. 13 fuzz pedals that has been out of production since late 2014.

The Lucky No. 13 is an exceptional smooth fuzz with thunderous lows and loads of singing sustain. It is great for banging out woolly rhythms with its heavy dynamic fuzz tone, while retaining enough clarity to do lead work.

The Lucky No. 13 sets itself apart from other fuzzes with its smooth saturated tone and natural sounding decaying breakup. It is based on a classic one knob fuzz circuit designed in the 60’s but with higher gain, a smoother tone and a more modern voicing. If you are looking to get a unique signature fuzz tone give the Lucky No. 13 a try.

As with most one knob pedals the single control knob is a volume control and it is meant for you to use your guitar’s volume control to control the pedals gain.

The Lucky No.13 is retailing at $119.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

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.
