Paul Pigat Compares Vintage VS. New Guitars Via Guitar Aficionado

Posted:

Paul Pigat, the prolific and highly versatile rockabilly player, is also a self-proclaimed “guitaraholic.”

In an interview with Guitar Aficionado, the Gretsch artist admits to embarking on a never-ending journey in search of the “perfect” guitar.

“Vintage guitars are COOL!” Pigat tells Guitar Aficionado. “They have a look and a patina that screams experience. Who doesn’t want to think that their guitar has “been around,” so to speak, and has experience?”

Although the vintage-loving player loves his elderly guitars, he says his new models are more reliable.

“So now I’m traveling with a bunch of new instruments in my arsenal,” Pigat tells the magazine. “They may not have the ‘retro cool’ factor, but they are all based on traditional designs; so, from a distance, most folks can’t tell the difference and they sound great!”
