Berkeley, CA (January 12, 2011) -- The Ghost is the latest compact powerhouse from ZT Amplifiers, makers of the innovative Lunchbox line of guitar amps. With its stylish looks and diminutive size, the Ghost packs stunning output and tone into a unique and affordable package. It's high-tech and classic sound all in one, perfect for the home, desktop, or recording studio.

The Ghost features a custom-designed 6.5” driver in a gloss white cabinet less than 7” high and 8” wide.

The Ghost also features an Auxiliary Input for mp3 player, External Speaker Output, Headphone/Line Out with Level control, and Internal Speaker Mute for quiet practicing.

The Tone control offers a wide sweep, and the Volume and Gain controls allow the user to dial in clean output at high volumes or thick overdrive at low volumes.

At $199 MSRP, the Ghost is ZT’s first entry into the under $200 amplifier price category.

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.
