This is a top-five style list. But it’s my top-five list. This is the list of my five favourite guitar moments from 2015. This is the Scarebear 2015 in review article I never thought I’d do. What can I say, I’ve rediscovered the blogging bug.
Have you ever played that game If I had a custom guitar it would be [insert make and model here]? I know I have. In a way I followed through on that game by getting myself a custom Scarebear guitar through Moniker Guitars. But that’s a different story. An easier game to play for the average guitar lover is If I had custom guitar strings they would be [insert custom string gauges here].

Recently I was approached by the folks at StringJoy who asked me if I wanted to try their strings out. I didn’t have to think too hard or long about that.

As a recent owner of a 7-string guitar, I jumped at the opportunity.
