Have you landed here and you’re wondering “what am I doing here?”, “what does this site do/offer?” or “has anybody seen where I left my plectrum?”. Hopefully this quick article can answer some of those questions.
This story starts in 2018. That may seem like a long time ago—partially because it was—but when you realise that this is the second blog post I’ve added to my website this year, you’ll understand that I clearly don’t move quickly. I’m what many people may call an overthinker. This rarely results in me eventually creating anything ground breaking. It simply delays things I have a fear of finishing. Things like the video I finally created or this blog post to promote that video further. So let’s get to it!
It was an interesting year for this series. Off to a late start, infrequent posting patterns and the challenge that was finding 52 guitars that didn’t repeat with the guitars captured the first time I wrote about wanting 52 guitars.
Still, we got to this place in the series—the summary. The collection of all 52 guitars desired in 2020. Hopefully, enjoyed and desired by you as well.
Last in the list and potentially the perfect next guitar. The FU-Tone FU Pro Guitars Black model is a brand new release from FU-Tone and it may end up being the next guitar I try to convince my wife that I need.
With this second-last entry in the Another 52 guitars series, I wanted to try something different. Well, every guitar in this series has been something different, but this one has that little something extra. The Koloss GT-4 Guitar Kit is a guitar you put together yourself.
Also, it’s an aluminium body, so there’s that too.
Sometimes a classic guitar body shape is tweaked just enough to make it unique and somehow potentially better. Potentially. I think the Springer Guitars Seraph may have just accomplished such a feat. This body shape is killer.
This year I actually did a small piece of graphic design work. Yay me! It was a really fun project where I worked with a friend I met on social media many years back through our shared love of guitars. He’s actually good at playing guitar though and has decided to share his guitar knowledge with those keen to learn. Hence this logo.
Earlier this year I purchased another awesome deal from the folks at AppSumo—I’ve mentioned them and my happy addiction to their deals before. This deal was with the fine folks at Sticker Mule. It was time to put my brand on stickers so I could place them on random cars.
I really need to get myself a guitar with a f hole. It’s something I still haven’t added to my collection and the PJD Guitars Carey Elite seems like a good place to start the journey into guitars with chambered bodies.
Even though 2020 felt like quite the disaster, there were some great musical moments to be had. Many bands released awesome albums during times where the world truly needed something good to look forward to. Even though I’ve done this annual summary of my favourite album releases before, never have I felt the list to be so vital and required.
A great album release was something worth its weight in gold this year. When so much went wrong, it was critical to enjoy these new musical moments.
