Back to School With Egnater
Web Editor Joe Coffey spent a weekend in
Michigan with Bruce Egnater building his own
Egnater-styled JTM- 45 and attending lectures on
all-things amps. Once you’re done reading the
story in this month’s issue, head online for tons
of extras, from a demo of the finished product
to words of wisdom from Bruce to a gallery of
the build. Exclusively at premierguitar.com.
Weaving a Web of Warr
We gave the Chapman Stick its due in this month’s interview with Virna Splendore,
but what about its winged brethren, the Warr guitar? Hailing from the same wide-
necked, tap-friendly family as the Stick, the Warr guitar allows for simultaneous
lead, bass and rhythm playing with whatever playing techniques you prefer. We
take a look at this versatile instrument through the eyes of its most promi-
nent performer – Trey Gunn. Only at premierguitar.com.
High Priced Connections
If you’re like most guitarists with a mortgage or
a car payment, you’ve seen expensive cables at
the back of the store, scoffed at the price and
moved on. But hasn’t a voice always lingered
in the back of your mind – what could those do
for my tone? We got our hands on more than 20
high-end cables to see how much of a difference
an expensive cable makes.

Tech Interview: John Prestia
John Prestia is the guitar tech for one of country
music’s most successful superstars, Tim McGraw, as
well as an accomplished guitarist himself. McGraw’s
73-date tour in 2006 was one of the highest grossing
tours of all time and they’re getting ready to do it all
again in May. Mike Broward caught up with Prestia before he hit the road to talk about the demands of the
job, as well as his own guitar playing and songwriting.
