I’ve been bitten by the blogging bug lately and this has caused me to investigate all-things guitar once again. I’m very OK with that. Who doesn’t love spending hours surfing the Interwebs looking at guitars? I’m sure that doesn’t appeal to some folks—I like to call those people boring. What is hopefully not boring though is this list of the five signature guitars I wish I owned.
I have an Epiphone. It’s a beautiful guitar and I love it dearly. It’s one of the reasons I follow Epiphone on Facebook. I love seeing what they release each and every year. Recently they released their 2014 Holiday Guide—a collection of guitars and gear under $300USD. As soon as I saw it I asked myself “Why the heck are you not an American?!”
I love a good guitar. Truth be told, I love a bad guitar too. I just love guitars. This infatuation often has me looking into guitars I don’t have, yet want. Those lists—have-nots and wants—are massive. There are so many options to consider when looking at different guitars. Wood type, body shape, pickup type/configuration, fretboard material, bridge type and a whole lot more. What I’ve been looking into lately though—purely for my own entertainment—is the number of strings on an electric guitar. That is currently the one thing all of my guitars have in common. They’re all six string guitars (until a string breaks). So I’ve been looking into seven string guitars.
There are so many to choose from and many of them are damn affordable. Care to see which models I like the most? Yes? Well read on. Or just look at the picture at the end of this article. Either way … … 7 string guitars—what would you choose?
Epiphone … 140 years old this year. That’s older than Gibson! That’s pretty cool. So are many of their guitars (including the one I own of course). One I don’t own though is the G-400 Pro—an awesome looking guitar in the style of the classic SG.
The SG is one of those guitars that you recognise straight away. It’s so iconic that you often associate it with someone great (Angus Young, Tony Iommi, Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend for example). It was even the guitar shape chosen for many of the initial Guitar Hero systems! It’s also the guitar shape I’m featuring this week. Featuring with what I consider to be the extra Epiphone touches. … 52 Guitars, week 24—Epiphone G-400 Pro
