Another 52 Guitars, week 47—McSwain Guitars Fear and Loathing

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.

Another 52 Guitars, week 45—Equilibrium Guitars Masai

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.

The Masai by Equilibrium Guitars reads like a feature list of all the things I don’t have in a guitar already.

Another 52 Guitars, week 44—Hamer Archtop

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It was (unpublished).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).

Another 52 Guitars, week 43—Frank Brothers Guitars Arcade

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?

That’s when the Frank Brothers Guitars Arcade would be incredibly handy. #want

Another 52 Guitars, week 41—Rivolta Guitars Combinata VII

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.

Happiness returns!
