The October 2002  issue of TQR features the most in-depth, detailed interview with the elusive Mr. Gibbons that has ever been published. Our +6,000 word exploration into the Rev's famous tone leaves no gizmo unturned as we chronicle Billy's entire career, from the Moving Sidewalks  to the present, and all points in between... We're also mighty proud to welcome Mr. Gibbons to the ToneQuest Report Advisory Board. In addition to the Rev's interview and gear exposé, the October issue includes reviews of the under-appreciated  Les Paul Single-Cutaway Historic Reissue and the Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb, plus, another stellar interview with one of our favorite toneheads and TQR subscriber, Dave Malone of The Radiators. There are enough pro tone tips packed in this issue to justify the cost of your entire 12-month subscription, so subscribe now and you'll also be automatically entered in the ToneQuest Report Dr. Z MAZ38 Senior 2x12 Amplifier Giveaway!. (No purchase necessary to enter. Entry deadline September 1, 2003).
