Another 52 guitars—the summary

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.

For those of you who were not here at the beginning of the theme, the goal was to find another 52 guitars that each offered at least one thing that I didn’t already have in a guitar I already owned. That could be a pickup brand, a body shape, a material choice or anything else that would be unique to my experience in guitar ownership.

This list covered many new and interesting guitar features for me. It also reminded me just how many guitar luthiers/creators are out there. I encourage you to check them out and see what they have to offer. There’s a whole new world of guitar fascination out there.

Anyhow, here is the list of guitars I drooled over in 2020.
