Since each issue seems to get reviewed sooner or later; - Their special coverage of the Fender Precision's first 50 years is mandatory reading for all P owners. The feature isn't just a rehash of what I've seen published - The "How to Know When You Have Too Much Money" Award goes to the $60 Grammatone Gramma, a stand that raises your amp off the floor a few inches and has a handle!!!! Award runner up may be the Yamaha Nathan East NE-1 they review. You know something's up when the highest rated aspect of the unit only gets a "4" and that's for "Electronics." After reading it, I still don't know what it really does. - The "Get a Clue" Award goes to Elixir strings for its ad copy, "Your guitar is your friend....". - Good to see the underappreciated Lonnie Plaxico get featured. Only bassist I know of who uses a Patterson. Nice to see innovative Sheldon Dingwall and his 37" B string get a spotlight, too. He got more ink than Bianca Butthole! - That mid-high compression driver on the Hartke 4200 looks serious. Spec'd down to 30Hz....????? - The $950 list ESP C-305 only gets tested on an Aguilar + Stewart power amp...yeah, I guess it was "easy to dial in a happening tone." Any other observations are welcome.
