This listing is for Vintage Guitar Magazine November 2010 Vol 25 No 11 Carlos Santana Cover.
The Heavenly Guitar of Carlos Santana: His latest CD could be viewed as the artist playing it safe, or it could be a risky move. Using guest singers ranging from Joe Cocker to Chris Cornell to India. Arie, he tackles classic guitar-driven songs, along the way proving there is still only one Carlos Santana. By Dan Forte
SRV Memories: Twenty years after the passing of a legend, VG contributors recall the greatness that was.
Reassessing Gibson Shipping Numbers - Part 1: The Pre-War Super 400: Recent research on Gibson electric-steel guitars has raised doubts about the accuracy of company’s oft-referenced shipping totals. In the first of three essays on the subject, we take a closer look at the Super 400 in the “pre-war” era.” By A.R. Duchossoir
An Epiphone Custom: After Gibson purchased Epiphone, Ted McCarty wanted to make it an “almost a Gibson” brand – a step below Gibson. Despite his intentions, some customers simply preferred an Epiphone. The proof is in this custom-ordered guitar from 1965. By George Gruhn and Walter Carter
The Vox Starstream: There is intrigue and politics in the stories about many of the guitars we cherish. Most is normal company business, but sometimes a guitar has more color behind its existence. One loaded example is the cool ’68 Vox Starstream. By Michael Wright
The Rickenbacker 4000: For all of the “icon” accolades afforded Rickenbacker’s two-pickup 4001, it’s easy to forget the model wasn’t the company’s first bass. That honor belongs to the single-pickup 4000. By Willie G. Moseley
Keith Richards’ ‘77 Mesa/Boogie Mark I: With a hint of nostalgia, we recall a time when even the biggest rock stars had to plead their case with Randy Smith to jump a waiting list for the amps he was turning out from his California home. By Dave Hunter
