Humbuckers have been immensely popular ever since they hit the market. Their fat, juicy tone allows for easier playing, their higher output makes amps crank out more dirt and with all the various humbuckers around you can easily season your guitar to taste. But some players feel the need to go a bit further.
About 2 months ago, we came upon a very talented musician who was uploading videos to YouTube with some real soulful playing. Having made 74 videos, we tracked down this mysterious player (whose videos usually are shot below the neck) and had a chat with him about his life as a guitar player.
