I’m lucky enough to already have more guitars than my skillset warrants. My small collection allows me to pick and choose each day between something traditional and something a bit more … pointy. What if you feel the need to play something a bit pointy, but also a bit traditional at the same time?
Continuing with my late year catch-up game in the Another 52 guitars series is a guitar as unique as my apparent approach to how weeks work in a year. Luckily, the Diavolo by Prisma Guitars is a lot more impressive than my ability to schedule regular content.
There’s this guy I know and admire—let’s call him Brad—who has often mentioned his love for Novo Guitars. He may even have one of the Novo Guitars models himself—he absolutely does. So when I was putting this list together, I knew I had to look into the Novo options because Brad is wise.
When I discovered Novo Guitars had a whole other line using the name Rivolta Guitars, I became intrigued. Then I saw the Combinata VII and became sad. I was sad that I didn’t already have one of these guitars. Still, I have the ability to fix that one day.
At first glance, there may not be much that makes the Anderson Guitarworks Bobcat stand out from the pack. Upon closer inspection however, there are several finer details that make this guitar a serious contender for any other single cutaway electric guitar out there.
Righty-o. Time to get back into this Another 52 guitars series. I’ve fallen further behind than I already was in this series and lost my mojo. Luckily for me, the Super Glide Almighty by Koll Guitars is a guitar that has so many variations, it’s the perfect place to start as I revisit all the things that made me start this series. Why? It’s full of all the possibilities this series was created to find.
I’m super excited by this week’s entry in the incredibly irregular Another 52 guitars series. Partially because I’m writing the post—small victory—but also because the guitar builds I’ve seen from Aviator Custom Guitars look phenomenal. For the purposes of this week’s article header image, I’ve chosen the Warbird 6—it’s one of the many body styles to choose from.
Let’s get into how the Aviator Custom Guitars look and how you’d go about ordering one of your own.
I’m noticing a growing trend in this article series. I may developed a fascination for guitar headstocks that feature that 4 and 2 style of machine head placement. I’m OK with that. If it means one day owning a guitar looks anything like the Soultool Katana, I’ll add another guitar to the collection.
New guitars that look old. It’s not something I’d really got into. Not until I saw the Shabat Guitars Lion Deluxe. Having said that, if reliced guitars are not your thing, then I don’t believe it’s a finish you have to go for with this guitar.
Initially I was going to start this issue of Another 52 guitars with a statement like “Time for something different” or “Here’s something a little left of field”. Then I realised that the whole point of this series was to find 52 guitars that each brought something that little bit unique to your standard guitar. So how do you draw attention to a guitar that goes that little bit further?
I don’t believe this is a new guitar, but it’s new to me. In my ongoing search for guitars to add to my Another 52 guitars series, I often come across a luthier I’m not familiar with. Sometimes, they have something in their collection that blows my mind and makes me drool—not a desirable thing to do over a PC keyboard. The AVA Guitars Coal Skin is one of those guitars.
