Still Rocking The Road After 30 Years
If it looks like a Paul, plays like a Paul, and sounds like a Paul, it is a Paul!
From the aftermath of the British Invasion to the heyday of 80s metal and 90s grunge, inspired musicians would save up to buy the same gear as their heroes, and, usually prompted by frustrated parents, were forced to "take that noise" out to the garage where they could rock out. What was once a safe haven from Mother Nature for the family car became an inexpensive practice space for the next generation of dreamers. Today there are still plenty of musicians, young and old, who've turned this area into a musical bunker where they can escape whenever inspiration hits them or for their band so they don't bother their family, but technology has come along way, making it easier to have the "Please Do Not Disturb" sign on a bedroom door instead.

As the Foo Fighters proved with their album Wasting Light, the garage doesn't stop being a place of creativity for musicians. It's a sanctuary for most of us. It's where we get our start as musicians and truly hone our chops. The new signature instruments from Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel and Taylor Hawkins are all based on early guitars and drums from their garage days that helped pave their musical paths. These instruments pay homage to the originals that created a signature sound and helped develop their personalized sounds. Although most of us won't sell millions of records like the Foo Fighters, they continue to make music that inspires us, moves us and reminds us that even from the humble beginnings of a garage band can come first-class musicianship and worldwide success.
