Gabriele Pala: shred this too rides again!

Some silly phrasing upon Marco Sfogli's "Shred This Too" backing track (there was a competition about it some time ago). Nothing special, I'm not a shredder at all. The guitar is, as usual, my BassLab "Gabriele Pala Signature". Hope you like it!

German Schauss: Shredding Bach review

German Schauss’ Shredding Bach does at first glance remind me of some of the Classically Inspired releases of the late 80′s and early 90′s -- the prominent “CD Included” logo, the glossy feel of the cover and of course the subject matter…regardless of era the popularity of Classical and Neoclassical playing hasn’t diminished with time. The similarities however end there as this is a considerably more accomplished and complete release than any previous attempt to encapsulate the classical approach on electric guitar which I can remember

Rob Chappers: Ghost Fret given a spanking and waiting for you!

Chapman Ghost Fret Demo

Infinity Guitars Ghost Fret rebranded as Chapman

Chapman Guitars announced today that the "Infinity Guitar Works" Ghost Fret guitar has been rebranded as the Chapman Guitars Ghost Fret and that the Infinity Guitar Works brand has been closed.

"Initially I was concerned that the affordable Chapman Guitars CGML1 would not sit well next to the super high-end Ghost Fret, hence the launch of the Infinity brand. However, after much thought I decided that one guitar brand was enough, and so the decision was made to close Infinity Guitar Works and bring the Ghost Fret home to Chapman Guitars", said Rob Chapman.

The Chapman Guitars Ghost Fret will continue to be made entirely in the UK by "Jaden Rose Guitars" and is available to order as a six or seven string hard tail or original Floyd Rose with various custom options.

"Jaden is such an amazing luthier, his attention to detail is just incredible and Chapman Guitars is extremely lucky to have a talent of his calibre on board. Every model that Chapman Guitars releases is collaboratively designed with the public via YouTube and I'm very proud to say that we've done a great job".

"This brand repositioning is all part of the change to come that will follow a massive project I have launching in August, it's all very exciting and I can't wait to tell everyone about it"

For further information on the Chapman Guitars Ghost Fret, or to schedule an interview with Rob Chapman please visit or Email:

The Chapman Guitars Ghost Fret is the second collaboratively designed guitar, and this time we’ve gone djent!

The core concept of the Ghost Fret was to have killer rock and metal tones in a hand-built stealth machine with as much access to upper frets as is humanly possible. The whole feel of the Ghost Fret is precision and speed, all backed up by clarity, thanks to the crisp overtones from the brass nut, ebony fretboard and korina body. However, in the central position both humbuckers are coil-tapped, and you can crank out some very tasty blues tones. The Ghost Fret is entirely hand-made in the UK for Chapman Guitars by Jaden Rose Guitars.
