PRS Ltd Ed SE Mark Holcomb

New signature model from PRS.

Great-looking quilted maple top that looks right at home among more expensive PRS models. Cool.

New Fender Pedals at NAMM

Hot on the heels of their recent pedal release, Fender has added a trio of effects.


Engager Boost  – A clean boost pedal that provides up to 20 dB of boost and 3-band EQ.

The Pelt – A silicon fuzz pedal with tone shaping controls.

Full Moon Distortion – High-gain pedal with EQ and High Treble filter.

Hitting the stores in September, so my guess is they may reach SG by early 2019.
