Guitar Tricks Picks: Gear You Gotta Try August 23, 2016

Ibanez IR28FEBK – RG Iron Label Series 8 String MSRP $1239.99

With metal and nothing but metal in mind, we modded and tweaked until we got to the heaviest sounding metal axes ever built. For the ultimate in playability we took our legendary super-thin, ultra-playable Wizard neck, and upped the ante to Nitro Wizard - as fast and comfortable but with added road-tested durability. Whether it's a 6, 7 or 8-string, every Iron Label axe is matched perfectly with American-made EMG or DiMarzio pickups. Purposefully Spartan, you won't find a feature here that doesn't contribute directly to rattling bones or waking the dead. Learn more about it here.

Direct replacement pickups for Telecaster guitars* MSRP $539.99

World-renowned Telecaster icon Greg Koch was searching for the perfect direct replacement pickups for his guitars. The result of his collaboration with Fishman is the Greg Koch Gristle-Tone set.

The set also includes a completely assembled, prewired, drop-in control plate with three-way switch and push-push voice selector button.

"For me the dream Multi-Voice scenario is to be able to instantly summon the perfect White-Guard and Black-Guard tones with flawless articulation and no hum. And that's exactly what Fishman has done for me in my signature set."

·       Voice 1 - White-Guard. Open and airy, the sound of Nashville and Bakersfield, chicken pickin', and the big strum.

·       Voice 2 - Black-Guard. Fat & punch, searing sustain. Undeniable Tele muscle.
