NEWS FREQ: A message from Keeley Electronics website…

As many of you may have heard there was a fire at Keeley Electronics. The Fire has caused us to relocate until we find a new building. We are several weeks behind on email and orders. We are glad to say that no one was hurt and that really only parts were destroyed. Customer units that were sent in are safe. There was smoke damage and water damage to the shop so it is taking us a long while to clean up and reorganize. Thanks for your patience, it may be a long time between emails from us, but we are working hard to take care of everyone as soon as possible. Orders will be shipping as soon as product is rebuilt. Insurance is covering everything and our company will be running strong again shortly.

PREVIEW: Jeff Beck 1954 Les Paul Oxblood from Gibson Custom

Excerpt from

Surely, there are as many modified electric guitars in the world as there are guitarists who play them. But rare is the modified, “off-the-shelf” guitar that is elevated to iconic status by the artist who played it and the music created by it.

Such is the case with Jeff Beck’s “Oxblood” Les Paul, a guitar from the heart of tone history. And now, Gibson Custom is proud to unveil the most accurate recreation of this legendary instrument ever produced: the Jeff Beck 1954 Les Paul Oxblood.

BOSS Hi-Band Flanger

This past week, I managed to land a very cool pedal in a trade- BOSS Hi-Band Flanger. The HBF was made in Japan in the 80's and is a unique flanger because it accentuates high frequencies to emphasize a dramatic flange effect.
Tonally, The HBF is thick and full. It colors well and while subtle and tasteful, it still gives the impression that your rig is falling out of a spaceship. If you happen upon one of these guys, I highly recommend it.
