September 2018 - In This Issue:
Preamp/EQ/Bass Pedal from Walrus Audio

From the mind of Ryan Adams comes a new guitar utility with more tricks up its sleeve than a 1980s supervillain. The Defcon4 works as a preamp and EQ to meticulously craft your guitar's sound. Bring peace time to your tone and avoid tedious amp tweaking during a set by using the Defcon4 to easily switch from single coil to humbucking instruments with a quick twist of the rotary knobs.

For those that sell and ship into California, the revised California Prop 65 regulation requires product manufacturers to provide "clear and reasonable warning" on products containing chemicals that may cause cancer or reproductive harm. Although the responsibility to sticker the product is with the manufacturer, everyone involved in the logistics of bringing the product to market - including the distributor and retailer - are responsible for getting this message in front of the consumer. 

Prop 65 also requires that we verify who has reviewed the information and instructions provided in this email - please click here to submit your verification.

from Centerstream

In the mid '50s, Ted McCarty, Gibson's new president, set out to further set Gibson apart from Fender. He wanted to create new designs that did not conform to the basic guitar shape. He wanted something new, something different. Together with a local artist, McCarty worked on guitars that were made up of straight lines, and three new guitars were born - the Moderne, the Flying V and the Explorer. This book delves deep into the history of the Explorer through a myriad of color photos of its versions over time.
