We’re headed to Italy this week to investigate just how it came to be that the capital of accordion manufacturing ended up making guitars in the 1960s.
Join Ed and John as they explore the Explorer, the quintessential pointy guitar. Gibson debuted this beast in 1958, and it was a flop. Eventually, metal came along and saved it. The rest is history. Long-haired, spandex-wearing history…
Here at THG headquarters, we've always had a fond place in our collective hearts for the Ibanez Iceman. And not just because of KISS, either; we just think it looks totally badass.
Nothing can stop the Hoshinos! This week Ed and John have gotten hold of a 1982 Ibanez Artist. Listen as they travel from Spain, to Japan, to America, to bring you the history behind the company responsible for this fine instrument.
