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.

AP­PLE INC RE­LEASES THE FIRST MAC­IN­TOSH

com­put­ers us­ing the new Pow­erPc Mi­cro­pro­ces­sors while Mi­crosoft an­nounces it will cease to sell or sup­port the Ms-DOs op­er­at­ing sys­tem sep­a­rately from Mi­crosoft win­dows. Adobe’s graph­ics edit­ing soft­ware Pho­to­shop 3.0 is re­leased and the Netscape Nav­i­ga­tor web browser goes on sale. The Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of china gets its first con­nec­tion to the in­ter­net as con­struc­tion com­mences on its amaz­ing Three Gorges Dam at san­doup­ing.

BRI­TISH GUI­TAR MAN­U­FAC­TUR­ERS PALM BAY

in­tro­duces the cy­clone model as a more pocket friendly al­ter­na­tive to the pop­u­lar Ti­dal­wave cus­tom. it boasts a twin­cut ma­hogany body and a maple neck with an ebony fin­ger­board in­laid with an abalone palm tree be­hind the first fret. it fea­tures a pointy re­verse head­stock, 24 frets, black hard­ware, a Floyd Rose vi­brato sys­tem and DiMarzio pick­ups. Mas­ter vol­ume and tone pots with push/pull func­tions of­fer coil-tap and out-of-phase sounds and there’s a three-way se­lec­tor switch. Truly ex­cep­tional colour com­bi­na­tions are avail­able.
