Another 52 Guitars, week 2—Manson Guitar Works MA EVO 2019

Week two of the new series—cleverly called Another 52 Guitars because I’ve already done a series called 52 Guitars—and I’m almost working in real time. It’s technically the beginning of the third week of the year, but I don’t follow the rules of the standard calendar.

That’s a good thing though. It allows me to do things like include a 2019 guitar in my 2020 series simply because this guitar looks awesome and I’d be as proud as a Manson Guitar Works artist to own one. The model I’ve decided I admire the most is the MA EVO 2019.

Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks

At the end of last year, I wrote about the Lightning Guitar Picks by PLB World. The lightning guitar pick is a cool novelty item. The main product that PLB World is trying to get people to notice however is their Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks. It’s not a novelty. It’s seriously trying to make your guitar safer while you’re playing it.

I’m lucky enough to have received one of the Perfect Lock Bolt guitar strap locks and I like them. I have a feeling I won’t be dropping my Ibanez RX-20 anytime soon. Let’s delve deeper.

Another 52 Guitars, week 1—Palm Bay Guitars Avalanche AXX1

Back in 2013, I did a weekly series about 52 different guitars I’d love to own. At the end of that year, I ended up buying one of the guitars in the list. Well, it’s been way too long since I blogged regularly and it’s also been too long since I found the motivation to find another guitar to buy. That changes now and my inspiration starts strong with the Palm Bay Guitars Avalanche AXX1.

Lightning Guitar Picks—LED impact plectrums

Quite often I’ll be scrolling through my Twitter feed—the same could be said for Instagram or Facebook—and I’ll come across some new piece of guitar gear/technology that makes me say “Oh, that’s new!”

When I do this, it’s out loud and my wife either says “What’s new?” or “If it’s guitar-related, you don’t need it”. When I try to explain what’s new, she rarely cares. When I showed her the video that PLB World had posted of their lightning guitar picks—impact activated LED plectrums—she agreed that this was indeed something she’d not seen before.

Yay! I could continue perusing 🙂

Eight reasons to buy another guitar

Let me start by saying that there shouldn’t be a need for an article like this. There’s really only one reason to buy another guitar. That reason?

You need another guitar.

Fairly simple. Should that not work for the person you perhaps need to convince of the desired purchase, let me help you point out the very important reasons for that necessary purchase you’re planning.

Monthly guitar riff video challenge … the December edition

It’s been less than two weeks since I posted the November edition of my monthly guitar riff challenge and yet here we are. The December edition is here well ahead of the end of the month. I may even have a chance to attempt the end goal for this project before the year ends.

Before I get to that, why not a summary of what has been achieved with this monthly guitar riff video challenge?

Monthly guitar riff video challenge … the November edition

As far as close calls go, this month’s entry in the monthly guitar riff video challenge is as close as I’ve come. As I write this, there are two hours left until the end of November. Tomorrow morning will be December. Still, as soon as I hit Publish on this post, I’m eleven months into a successful blog series. There’s one to go! Maybe I’ll start it tomorrow.

I probably won’t. Monthly guitar riff video challenge … the November edition
