    The Friday Special: SMP Guitars

    This week on The Friday Special episode of The Guitar Nerds Podcast I'm talking to Stuart Powick from SMP Guitars.


    SMP Guitars are a wonderful little British custom shop who offer some really wonderful iterations of both classic and modern guitars.


    I find Stuart's attention to detail on his builds to be second to none, and I really enjoyed learning more about all his great instruments and a bit about what's yet to come.

My favorite of all the guitar podcasts

The extraordinary collective knowledge of the hosts is astonishing. This is a content rich show. It is an added bonus that they are very entertaining. They are most like a family of angry chimps given just enough food to sustain them and subsequently prone to fighting amongst themselves for survival. I mean this in the nicest possible way.

Fun, deep, very British

I love this podcast, partly because these are dedicated, knowledgable guitar nerds who talk about all the right things regarding guitars, pedals, and amps, of course, but also guitar minutiae, playing attitude, the general guitar universe (i.e., Gilmour's black start auction, etc.). They are also funny and well recorded, which is important when you're trying to remember all the differences betwee American and British English (Fevva = Feather) and some of the slight differences in slang terms (mucking with = trolling). My only fairly slight criticism is this: A whammy bar is a vibrato, not a tremolo. Vibrato describes a variation in pitch, temolo describes a variation in volume (such as on an amp or a pedal). So on the guitar, whether with the wang bar or your fretting hand, it's a vibrato, on the floor (amp, pedal) it's a tremolo. I must now delve into all the past episodes. Well done!
