Interview: Eric Johnson Discusses Upcoming 'Evening With' Tour, Gear and Plans for Future Releases

Eric Johnson's latest studio album, Up Close [Vortexan], was released in December 2010.

While many guitarists might have found a year of promoting and touring -- not to mention working tirelessly on a line of signature music equipment -- reason enough to take a break and enjoy the holidays, Johnson is gearing up to hit the road.

Johnson, 57, and his band -- bassist Chris Maresh and drummer Wayne Salzmann -- will be touring stateside for almost all of January, kicking things off January 4 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Plans are in the works for even more dates in the spring.

Gibson Launches Pro Audio Division

Gibson News - Gibson Launches Pro Audio Division:

'via Blog this'

Good news for musicians. Gibson Guitar has moved heavily into pro audio with the creation of the Gibson Pro Audio division. The division will offer professional grade equipment, including loudspeakers, headphones, monitors, DJ gear, mixers, accessories and more.

Gibson has created the Gibson Pro Audio division by acquiring the esteemed Stanton Group, which includes some of the most respected audio manufacturers in the business – Cerwin Vega!, KRK Systems and Stanton DJ. Cerwin Vega! was responsible for the world's first solid-state amplifier in 1957. KRK Systems began in 1986 as a high-end monitor manufacturer. Stanton DJ was originally founded at Stanton Magnetics in 1946 by Walter O. Stanton, the inventor of the easily replaceable phonograph stylus, and grew into an industry leader in DJ audio equipment.

Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar, said, "This new division is perfectly aligned with our core. It expands our reach to fellow music lovers and allows us access to 20 in 20 consumers instead of the one in 20 we currently hit. Stanton produces some of the best pro audio equipment in the world and we're incredibly excited to be working with the very talented team at Stanton as we take Gibson into the future."

His distinct interpretation of the blues and his extraordinary guitar skills have earned him a fitting a tribute from Epiphone - the new Limited Edition Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Goldtop Outfit. Designed in close cooperation with Joe himself, this new signature model captures the essence of Bonamassa's Goldtop by blending several vintage features from the legendary Les Pauls of the 1950s including a traditional 1959 neck profile and Gibson Burstbucker(TM) pickups with a few modern appointments. The new Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Goldtop sets a new standard for affordable performance."

The Five Best Distortion Pedals for Under $50

"There's nothing more exciting for guitarists than finding a good distortion pedal, especially one that sounds crushing and is affordable. Distortion is one of those mandatory pedals you’ll need as a glorious boost for rhythms, solos and — most importantly — to summon the gods of feedback.

Keep in mind that distortion pedals can range anywhere from fuzzy to clipped, articulate to unrefined, muscular to flabby and occasionally overdriven to gobs of gain, so it’ll take a bit of research and some discerning ears on your part to find the one that suits your playing style"
