When I wrote the original 52 Guitars article series, one of my favourite guitars was the PRS Dave Navarro signature model. Years later and I still find myself wanting a Paul Reed Smith (PRS) guitar. One day I hope to make it happen. Perhaps I’ll make it happen with the SE Hollowbody II.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t own a guitar that was influenced by the designs Zakk Wylde has been applying to guitars for years now. Zakk’s Bullseye guitar and the variations that have followed since then are all really well designed. The RedRum Vortex design on the Wylde Audio Nomad is no exception. The design draws your eye into the business end of a seriously tempting guitar.
I’m hoping that this year is the year I break the drought. I feel like 2020 owes me something good. I’m pretty sure most of us have been questioning what has gone wrong with this year. Knowing that guitars always make me happy, I thought I’d look into my V-style guitar options.
This entry in the Another 52 guitars series has quite a few features I’d include in my list of features I don’t currently have in a guitar I already own*. Exciting, right? So, let’s get straight into the article on the awesomeness of the Michael Kelly Hybrid 55.
First and foremost, I love the look of this week’s dream guitar. The Ikara by Stone Wolf Guitars is a modern approach to the body shapes often seen in an electric guitar. And as the official description of the guitar states, this guitar looks built for comfort. Comfort and style combined for the win.
I love a good Telecaster-style guitar. I have two already. C.R. Alsip Guitars have a good take on the style as well. The Tejas-T comes with so many options you can easily build the guitar of your dreams.
That’s perfect, because that’s exactly what this article series has always been about.
It has been a while since I’ve come across a guitar website that lets you digitally create your dream guitar before ordering the real-word version of that very same guitar. So I was very happy to come across the Baum Guitars website and their Wingman model guitar.
It’s been a while since I added to this series. I apologise for that. It just hasn’t felt like the most important thing for me to focus my thoughts and energies on in these current times. Having said that, I wanted to make sure my next article in this series did something to promote someone who wasn’t representing a huge brand but instead was doing their best to get their voice heard in a crowded market.
The first guitar I thought of was the NoneMoreBlack by JHALE Guitars. Now I know that this article isn’t going to do much to help Jay—owner and luthier at JHALE Guitars—but if I’m going to reconnect with my joy for guitars and blogging, I couldn’t think of a better guitar to start with.
If you’ve been reading the articles in this series, you’ll know I’m looking at guitars that have something unique—when compared to my own current collection’s feature set. Well, today’s guitar ticks more boxes than any previous guitar in this series.I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a guitar this unique.
The first time I did this 52 guitars thing, I had a Telecaster in the list that was a Jim Root signature model. Later on when I did the 52 amplifiers series, I had a Jim Root signature model amplifier. Now I’m not the world’s great Slipknot or Stone Sour fan, but I will say this … Jim Root knows good gear.
