The Pagey Project Phase 2 and postscript

I know things have been really Les Paully around here lately (don’t worry: despite how much fun I’m having with this amazing Les Paul, I’m still addicted to my Ibanii, my Taylor, my Buddy Blaze 7-string and my Fender ’62 Strat reissue), but here’s something else you might dig, regardless of which two-humbucker axe you may sling: Joe Gore’s Pagey Project.

Here’s part 1, in which Gore wires up his Les Paul with the wildly flexible Jimmy Page setup.

Here’s part 2, in which things get way crazy with Triple Shot mounting rings and a germanium overdrive.

And here’s the postscript, wherein we learn what happens next!

REVIEW: Paul Reed Smith Signature Limited

Paul Reed Smith has many gorgeous signature models for artists like Carlos Santana, Alter Bridge/Creed’s Mark Tremonti, David Grissom and Al DiMeola, as well as SE models for Orianthi, Dave Navarro, Bernie Marsden, Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt and many more. The PRS GuitarsĀ Signature Limited is a signature model too, but you won’t find a specific artist named on the headstock. Instead this model has the backing of multiple artists: Howard Leese (Heart/Bad Company), Davy Knowles (when I told Davy I was reviewing the Signature Limited, he offered a few words: “It’s the only guitar I’ve played for ages now. So proud to be a part of it!”), Michael Ault, legendary guitar historian Tom Wheeler and Paul Smith himself. The model was launched at the 2011 Winter NAMM show as a 100-piece run through the company’s Private Stock division, but in 2012 the model has been shifted over to the core production line for a still-limited but much-larger, 400-piece run.
