This year I actually did a small piece of graphic design work. Yay me! It was a really fun project where I worked with a friend I met on social media many years back through our shared love of guitars. He’s actually good at playing guitar though and has decided to share his guitar knowledge with those keen to learn. Hence this logo.… Stay At Home Guitarist logo
Earlier this year I purchased another awesome deal from the folks at AppSumo—I’ve mentioned them and my happy addiction to their deals before. This deal was with the fine folks at Sticker Mule. It was time to put my brand on stickers so I could place them on random cars.
I wouldn’t really do that. Please don’t do that.… Custom stickers from Sticker Mule
When I’m not looking for black guitars, I’m looking for white guitars. Fewer are whiter than the Lava Drops White Mist Flamed Maple Drop. Fewer still look as unique as this guitar.… Another 52 Guitars, week 49—Lava Drops White Mist Flamed Maple Drop
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.… Another 52 Guitars, week 48—PJD Guitars Carey Elite
Even though 2020 felt like quite the disaster, there were some great musical moments to be had. Many bands released awesome albums during times where the world truly needed something good to look forward to. Even though I’ve done this annual summary of my favourite album releases before, never have I felt the list to be so vital and required.
A great album release was something worth its weight in gold this year. When so much went wrong, it was critical to enjoy these new musical moments.… My 10 favourite albums of 2020
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 47—McSwain Guitars Fear and Loathing
This could be a lengthy post. Partly because this article will require imagery to help me explain what I love so much about Milanote. Also though, I may ramble on a bit because there is a lot that I genuinely love about Milanote. No time to waste! To the feature list!… Milanote—one of my favourite finds in 2020
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.… Another 52 Guitars, week 46—Sturner Guitars 1129
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.

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”.
