Guitar Aficionado - July/August 2014 - Mike Campbell
The July/August 2014 issue of Guitar Aficionado spotlights Mike Campbell, best known as the lead guitarist of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Throughout his feature, Campbell takes us behind the classic sound of Hypnotic Eye, the band's latest album, where he sought the sounds of friends new and old.
Next, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline may be a reluctant collector, but he's amassed a quirky and curious assortment of guitars in search of tones wild and wonderful.
Further on, Guitar Aficionado takes a trip to Tokyo. From vintage to new to unique models made exclusively for the Japanese market, Tokyo offers possibly the greatest selection of guitars on earth.
Later, we focus on long-running guitar maker Ernie Ball Music Man. By collaborating closely with a select group of guitarists, such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Lukather, and John Petrucci, the company redefined the artist signature series guitar phenomenon.
Finally, we highlight the tree of life. Renowned for its incredible figuring and beautiful tone, Honduran mahogany has inspired and mystified luthiers for decades.
Plus, best of show watches, cachaca cocktails from Brazil, the 2014 SRT Viper GTS Coupe and much more!
