LG EMG Guitar

Godin‘s LG EMG black graphite guitar further cements Godin’s recent trend toward offering several guitars for heavy rockers. Godin’s press materials touts the guitar line with a “darkly alluring new black graphite semi gloss finish and full out, blistering tone.” The LG EMG is a single-cutaway design, featuring a Honduras mahogany neck, an Indian rosewood fingerboard, a string-through-body design and 24-inch scale, plus an all- mahogany body and neck with an active EMG-85 humbucker in the neck. Godin says the EMG-81 bridge humbucker “offers up a warm and thick crushing wall of sound when needed.” Godin guitars are one of the few lines left in this price point assembled in North America. They’re assembled in Berlin, New Hampshire from parts made in LaPatrie, Quebec, Canada. Retail price is $885. For more information, check out

Zodiac DE Scorpio Bass

Designed with veteran metal bassist David Ellefson (ex-Megadeth), Peavey‘s Zodiac DE bass guitar is a “man’s man” bass guitar featuring both J-style and P-style pickups. Ellefson’s goal was to “create a bass that incorporates the best sound qualities of a traditional instrument but also has cutting-edge features designed for modern players.” The bass is built using a solid alder body with front and back contours, an articulating bridge, maple neck, a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, custom Seymour Duncan pickups, a manly gloss-black finish, and a mirrored pickguard. Retail price is $899.99. For more information, visit
