Robben Ford on his blonde 1960 Telecaster
 
03:25
Guitarist recently caught up with the legendary Robben Ford, who told us all about the gorgeous vintage Tele that's all over his back catalogue: "It's a '60. I bought that in a guitar shop in San Francisco called Black Market Music. I really wasn't looking for it. We just went to a music store, maybe to get strings or something when I was on the road, touring, and I saw the guitar. I thought immediately of Mike Bloomfield, because on one of the Butterfield Blues Band records, there's a picture of him and Butterfield and he's playing this white Tele that looks just like that. "So, I went over, picked it up and started playing it -- and I couldn't leave the store without it. Honestly, prior to that time, I never would have even considered a Telecaster. I never would have gone: 'I gotta go out and get me a Telecaster.' But this guitar was sitting there, so I started to play it, and by the time I'd finished I had to have it. "I play it 50 per cent of the time, now. It's such a good guitar -- it's kinda the workhorse. If I can only have one guitar, this thing will work for just about everything -- almost. It was a great find and I'm so glad that I got it."

Nuno Bettencourt on his original Washburn N4: guitar playing and conversation
 
01:54
"You know, I can't get rid of it! It's like, I've tried to keep that thing at home tour after tour after tour. Just because of what it's been through -- but just every time I pick up another... we've even had it lasered and cloned and get it exact, exact -- the years you've put into it cannot be replaced. "So you pick it up and just go, Oh -- there it is: it's like fitting another limb onto your body and it just works. With that guitar I never play guitar, it's like it's just another part of my body. It's become that. With a lot of guitars I'm conscious that I'm playing a guitar. With this original one I don't even know I'm playing it. It sits on you and it's just like a pair of shoes or a baseball glove -- the more you use it, the more it forms to your body and becomes a part of you."

Guthrie Govan demos his new Charvel prototype for Guitarist magazine
 
06:21
In this age of production-line rock stars, there's something really great about meeting a guitarist who defies easy classification. One thing Guthrie Govan isn't, though, for all his frankly astonishing fretboard skills, is a shredder. Watching Guthrie idly noodle on the guitar is the musical equivalent of watching someone channel-surfing on TV. One moment he's playing face-melting metal; a heartbeat later he's playing warped country licks - then rounding things off with a bar or two of straight jazz - all played with great feel and not a little wry humour. It's no surprise then that his new Charvel prototype (it's not currently a production model, sadly) is a deceptively versatile design that departs from his first koa Charvel in some important respects. Firstly, it's got a maple-capped basswood body -- moving the game on even further from mahogany guitars Guthrie has favoured in the past. "Mahogany is great for the barking rock, but it doesn't clean up quite as well as you want it to sometimes," he says. Meanwhile, the new prototype has custom pickups in an H/S/H configuration made by Michael Frank-Braun, who designed the pickups on the Eric Johnson signature Stratocaster. They're designed for flexibility not out-and-out mayhem, Guthrie explains. "I just told him I want a certain kind of honesty in the pickups. I want them to reflect all the different ways you can hit a note, which is the opposite of the flattering pickup. I want the pickup to hear every subtlety, even if it's a mistake, and also transmit the natural sound of the wood. They're not ultra-high output." For the complete lowdown on Guthrie's latest Charvel prototype and an in-depth look at the rest of the gear he relies on - plus insider insights into his forthcoming Aristocrats album - check out our interview in issue 367 of Guitarist on sale 5 April.

QOTSA man's signature axe in action Gear demos playlist: http://goo.gl/30cAf Subscribe for more from Guitarist: http://goo.gl/2PRXE Since the Jazzmaster's introduction in 1958, it has built a loyal fanbase of guitar anti-heroes, most of whom have modified their beloved instruments in order to cope with its idiosyncrasies. In recent years, J Mascis, Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore have all had a hand in reshaping the JM, and Queens Of The Stone Age/A Perfect Circle guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen is the latest alt-rocker to add his name to Fender's signature list. Although a relatively recent convert to the Jazzmaster (his previous signature model was the discontinued Yamaha SA503 TVL semi), Van Leeuwen has appointed his model with a number of aesthetic and practical alterations that make it an altogether more usable beast. Here, Chris Vinnicombe demos the TVL Jazzmaster in combination with a Fender '68 Custom Princeton Reverb amp, an MXR FET Driver and a Stone Deaf FX PDF-1.

Gibson's Min-ETune self tuning system first look demo
 
01:27
Gibson's Min-ETune system is the latest take on mechanical self tuning for electric and acoustic guitars. The headstock-mounted gears are the next generation of the company's 'Robot' technology, and appear on the new Tribute Les Paul and SG models. The whole Min-ETune system -- tuners included -- sits on a thin black rectanglular plate that covers most of the rear of the peghead. The 'brain' is the centre section and sits between the tuners. It adds a little extra weight but not enough to unbalance the instrument. In fact our reviewers agree that it's negligible; the tuners themselves are very light, and manufacturers Tronical state that the total weight impact is roughly equivalent to a set of Grovers. A tiny rechargeable battery provides the power, giving 80 to 100 tunes before it needs to be charged using the included power supply. The tuning pegs are still operable by hand, should you forget to charge before a gig. Operation is reassuringly simple: switch the unit on, strum all open strings and watch their respective LEDs. The strings that are in tune will turn green. Now, pick any individual strings that display red LEDs until the guitar is completely in tune, after which the unit turns itself off. One thing we found is that Min-ETune works reliably when playing open strings, whereas 12th-fret harmonics confuses the system and stops it from working. Back to open strings, even with jarringly wayward tunings, the whole process takes around 15 seconds, and the unit is accurate up to two cents. That might not be as precise as the likes of the Peterson StroboStomp, but it's plenty close enough for live gigs. The procedure outlined above is for standard tuning, which is barely scratching the surface of what the Min-ETune can do. 12 altered tunings -- including DADGAD, open D and open G -- are roughly 30 seconds away via the unit's four-way cursor, and you can even create your own recallable custom tunings. Following our initial tests, the Min-ETune is proving to be a big step forward for automatic guitar tuning. Other than for relatively quick access to altered tunings, experienced players may wonder what all the fuss is about, yet the potential time- and frustration saving benefits are massive for beginners and less experienced guitarists. Gibson's new Tribute models will be reviewed in full in issue 369 of Guitarist, on sale 31 May 2013. In the meantime, we'll be testing the Min-ETune system to see how it performs with constant use.

'Silverface' and 'blackface' guitar amps compared Gear demos playlist: http://goo.gl/30cAf Subscribe for more from Guitarist: http://goo.gl/2PRXE Late 2013 saw Fender revisit the 'silverface' period for the first time when it announced the new '68 Custom Series: a Twin Reverb, Princeton Reverb and Deluxe Reverb that combine the spirit of an era with a few contemporary tweaks, rather than providing exacting recreations of the original models. Here, Chris Vinnicombe puts the new '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb up against the 'blackface' Deluxe Reverb reissue in an A/B comparison test.

Steve Fishell explains how pedal steel guitar works

Emmylou Harris's pedal steel ace shows us how it's done Gear demos playlist: http://goo.gl/30cAf Subscribe for more from Guitarist: http://goo.gl/2PRXE Watch the video to see Steve demonstrate how his ZumSteel D-10's mechanisms can make magically expressive sounds. Steve walks us round the instrument, explaining why -- in the world of pedal steel -- a guitarist's legs aren't just used for knee slides, but for changing pitch. We got excited when he told us there was a bar involved, but it turns out that's just another of the note-forming tools that makes pedal steel such a tough but rewarding discipline... "The pedal steel is really simply a horizontal guitar tuned to a chord with pedals and knee levers that allow you to alter the chord that it's tuned to," Steve explains. "It's basically tuned to an open E chord on the outside neck, which is E, G#, B -- just the way you have an open E chord on a regular guitar. "Actually, the neck most commonly heard in recorded music today is called the E9 tuning. The floor pedals and knee levers allow you to alter that chord just as a guitarist would if they were playing a barred chord and wanted to add a 7th or a 9th or whatever."
