The August 2016 issue of Guitar & Bass magazine is on sale now and features an in-depth, exclusive look at one of rock’s most-heard live rigs. G&B had unrestricted access to Brian May’s Vox AC30s while they are being prepped for the current Queen + Adam Lambert tour and we found out what makes Brian’s legendary tone tick and how his techs keep these iconic amps on the road.


Elsewhere in the mag we run the rule over brand new and improved Electromatics from Gretsch, put affordable Fender Strats through their paces and crank up the new signature amp from U2’s The Edge.


Interviews include Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil and Perry from Pendulum – the former on going full circle on the band’s latest studio LP and the latter on how he used the new Line 6 Helix as the ‘brain’ of his rig in front of a live web audience of over 30 million people. No pressure, then. We also give you the chance to take home a luscious Larrivée acoustic worth £1,079 in our competition. All for just £4.99? It’s a kind of magic…
