Gibson Les Paul Classic Double Cutaway
By melding their archetype goldtop finish with their modern classic, the Les Paul Standard DC, Gibson has come up with the Les Paul Classic Double Cutaway ($1,399 street).
Soldano set a new standard for tube-powered spring-reverb devices with its now-discontinued Surf Box—a rare unit that retailed for $1,500, and currently goes for around five grand on eBay.
I’m usually the first to argue that 90 percent or more of a guitarist’s tone comes solely from his or her fingers.

D’Addario’s EXP12 80/20 bronze acoustic strings ($10 street) are the company’s latest entry into the exploding coated-string market. By coating the string’s core before it’s wound, the EXP’s are purported to keep their brightness three to four times longer than D’Addario’s uncoated 80/20 acoustic strings. And that, my friends, is a ringing endorsement, considering the EXPs are very satisfying tonally, with crispy highs and a balanced low-end. The only difference I noticed from their non-coated counterparts, were that the EXPs feel a tad slicker on the wound strings—not a bad thing, just different. Also available in phosphor bronze, the EXP 80/20s are worth exploring if you’re in the market for a long lasting, tonally happening set of strings. —Darrin Fox Fender Instrument Care Kit
