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.
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.
Well, I’ve come to that point where I now need to release an article a day to have this series finish on time. Luckily, I’m on holidays now and the remaining guitars are all guitars I’m super keen to be writing about. For example, the McSwain Guitars Fear and Loathing model is incredibly unique, super cool and ticks all the boxes for a guitar I’d love to own.
When it comes to guitar body and headstock shape uniqueness, I feel like the Sturner Guitars 1129 is probably one of the winners in this article series. The geometric design for both is very different. Different and cool.
Regular readers of this slow moving and constantly late article series will know that I’m attempting to find Another 52 guitars that are all different from the original series I wrote back in 2013. The selection criteria is fairly basic at its core—find a guitar that offers something I don’t already have.
Here are some true and funny facts. Firstly, I am still way behind in my scheduling for this series of articles. Secondly, I shouldn’t be behind as the list is already written. It’s been written for a while now. Thirdly, when I recently caught up with a friend and he told me son had recently bought a guitar by Hamer Guitars, I thought “I’m pretty sure their Archtop guitar is in my article series”.
It was (unpublished). It now is (you’re reading it).
