Relic Guitars The Hague - The Interview


Hi Frans. This is Baris from Guitarism. Welcome to my passion. Now lets begin with your very first beginnings. Whats the story behind the Hague?

RGTH started back in december 2015. Before that, Robert and I were building guitars from our garden shed just for fun and hobby. When our first builds sold quickly, custom orders were coming in and soon after that, we were building 150 guitars in the evenings and weekends. A year later we decided to make the company official. Last year we moved twice to bigger workshops so as to give our expanding business more space and to accommodate the large machines we need to build our guitars.

We’re still a small custom shop, we build around 250 guitars a year, both on special demand and in small series. Our focus is on building vintage style guitars. Custom (hand) made, for a ‘factory price’. That way everybody can have a high quality handmade guitar for a descent price, including our unique lifetime warranty.

Suhr Introduces New 7 String: MS7

When creating the MS7 we sought to address the needs of extended range players, paying close attention to all of the elements that contribute to great tone and playability. The MS7 is an extremely responsive instrument, in large part due to the resonance of African Mahogany. Our 7 Hot pickups are articulate and clear, with enough output to stay focused through the highest gain amps. The MS7 delivers the aggressive low string response needed for drop tuned riffing while still feeling comfortable in the higher register for solos, resulting in a truly versatile 7 string playing experience.

How to swap the Magnet of your Humbucker - a PATB3 Story

How to swap the magnet of your humbucker

Hello there. Here we are here for another guitarism article about modifying your electric twanger. First of all, if you havent enough information about the terms like “pole piece”, “alnico II”, “heavy formvar insulation”, “d.c.resistance” or “resonance peak”, you’d beter take a look for the basics first. Seymour Duncan is such a cool guy that on his web blog he has a glossary of tone (click here) and dictionary of tone terms (click here). For more information you can also get a quick search from google and voila! You’ve got anything you need, maybe even much more, anyway. But if you are familiar about basic pickup construction, lets roll then.

Warning: If your guitar is under guarantee from the manufacturer, you may lose by swapping or modifying its pickups. Moreover you may need to use a soldering iron which may be dangereous for your safety. So that if you are willing to do something on your guitar you MUST prepare everything for the protection and safety and must be very very very careful.
