Merry Christmas from the Editor!

Overwhelmed by Christmas spirit, I just thought I'd say a big thanks to everyone who bought or subscribed to TG this year.

We're all off on our xmas hols tomorrow, and will be unable to update the blog until we return on 5 January. Personally, I'm driving back home to Glasgow tomorrow - hopefully for a proper Scottish white Christmas. Though I reckon rain's more likely!

I'm really looking forward to it, as I'm taking a PRS Singlecut SE, which Headline has kindly lent me, along with my Line 6 M13 and Blackstar HT-Dual. Not just for the hell of it - I'm going to have a jam with some friends from a band I used to play guitar for in Glasgow. It's a mix of funk and hip-hop, so I really ought to take my wah-wah pedal along too!

I hope the rehearsal room has a nice boutique type valve amp that clips at low volumes, as I'm not a huge fan of modern 100W heads with too much clean headroom. Give me the Brown Sound any day! Maybe Santa Claus will deliver...

Anyway, guys, like I said, just wanted to offer a big thank you. Stay tuned for some really cool changes to the mag in the New Year. Based on some recent reader focus groups, I reckon we've got just what you need for 2009. It's gonna be a big one!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from me and all the TG team!
