NEW THIS MONTH IN GUITAR ONE:

Gear in Review:

Guitar One’s Mac Randall gets a tour of Brand New’s wall of sound. Plus, we review cool new gear from ESP, Electro-Harmonix, Gretsch, Ableton, Krank, Orange and more.

Also this month, it turns out John Petrucci, Mark Tremonti, Matt Heafy, Mick Thompson all have a little something in common- the Dunlop Jazz III: The player’s pick.

Obsession of the Month:
This month, our obsession was the Gretsch Playboy amp. Visually, with its black and maroon vinyl covering and boomerang-shaped speaker grille, it’s a perfect 10. But more importantly, the handwired Playboy, made by boutique manufacturer Victoria floored us with its thick, lush tones. Think you can handle a playboy model?
