That Was The Year... 1994 Dams, Cyclones and Screams
BRIAN MOORE CUSTOM GUITARS
are finally making an appearance in the Uk although the stunning Mc-1 has actually been around for a couple of years. Brian worked previously with Ned steinberger so it’s hardly surprising that this guitar has a graphite body with a thru-neck configuration. its super-s-style appearance is enhanced by a quilted maple top and matching reverse headstock with a 2/4 sperzel tuner placement.
TAKING THEIR VERY FIRST BREATHS
are harry styles and Justin Bieber but as they pop into existence a few others take a final bow including kurt cobain, Danny Gatton, harry Nilsson, Nicky hopkins, Dinah shore, henry Mancini, Roy castle and Fred ‘sonic’ smith (guitarist with Mc5).
CARVIN’S AC175 IS A SLIM BODIED ELECTRO
acoustic in a range of super finishes. The hollowed out mahogany body with spruce top is presented with a single cutaway design that offers easy access to all 24 frets from the through body mahogany neck. The ebony fingerboard has pearl dot inlays and the black faced headstock has 3-a-side tuners. The ebony bridge is fitted with an active Fishman system with three surface mounted rotary controls. colours offered include Ferrari Red, Pearl Blue, Jet Black and Natural.
GREEN DAY RELEASE THEIR THIRD STUDIO
album Dookie and it sells by the bucket load! Marmaduke wetherell’s photo of the loch Ness Monster is pronounced to be a hoax; Edvard Munch’s painting The scream is stolen in Oslo; and Michelangelo’s Universal Judgement is finally reopened to the public after 10 years of restoration work.
