BURNS LON­DON RE­LEASES THE

Marvin 1964, a sig­na­ture model gui­tar set at an af­ford­able price. With an alder body, bolt-on maple neck with rose­wood fin­ger­board and pearl dot in­lays this gui­tar has all the de­sign fea­tures of hank’s orig­i­nal sig­na­ture model from the 60s. With three rez-O-Matic sin­gle-coil pick­ups and the rez-O-Tube vi­brato unit it also sounds right too. With the three-sec­tioned scratch­plate, scrolled head­stock and vin­tage Van gent styled tuners, this is a very at­trac­tive pur­chase.

ONE OF THE COOLEST AMPS AROUND HAS TO BE

the Mesa en­gi­neer­ing ex­press 5:25 combo, an all-valve, two-chan­nel combo with a mighty voice. each chan­nel has two voic­ing op­tions with Clean/Crunch on chan­nel 1 and Blues/Burn on chan­nel 2. The three-but­ton footswitch pro­vides chan­nel se­lec­tion, con­tour and re­verb func­tions. loaded with a sin­gle 10-inch Ce­lestion Black shadow speaker this has all the Mesa hall­marks and sound qual­i­ties that you’d ex­pect.

SEN­A­TOR BARACK OBAMA DE­CLARES HIS

can­di­dacy for Pres­i­dent of the Usa. ground break­ing be­gins on the Chicago spire but the eco­nomic cli­mate changes and the spire is never built. early work­ings leave a large cir­cu­lar hole. The sec­ond span of the Ta­coma nar­rows Bridge opens, mak­ing it the long­est twin sus­pen­sion bridge in the world. The new Boe­ing 787 is launched.

AF­TER MORE THAN SIX YEARS IN THE MAK­ING

MA­JOR FLOOD­ING OVER WIDE AR­EAS OF

Bri­tain with glouces­ter­shire, Worces­ter­shire, War­wick­shire and Ox­ford­shire be­ing par­tic­u­larly af­fected. hun­dreds are left home­less and thou­sands of ve­hi­cles are left stranded on ma­jor roads. The new ford Mon­deo goes on sale and the north­ern rock bank re­ceives a liq­uid­ity sup­port fa­cil­ity from the Bank of eng­land.

AL­THOUGH MORE AS­SO­CI­ATED WITH CUS­TOM

mod­els, st Blues in­tro­duces a tasty new pocket-friendly gui­tar, the Mis­sis­sippi Blues­mas­ter. it’s an at­trac­tive de­sign that bor­rows el­e­ments from a les Paul and a Tele­caster and al­though that’s not a new idea in it­self, this is a very well pro­por­tioned gui­tar in­deed. Korean built with a ma­hogany body and neck this gui­tar sports a pair of sB P-90 pick­ups and a strat styled, hard­tail bridge with through-body string­ing. looks good and sounds great.
