Continuing with my late year catch-up game in the Another 52 guitars series is a guitar as unique as my apparent approach to how weeks work in a year. Luckily, the Diavolo by Prisma Guitars is a lot more impressive than my ability to schedule regular content.… Another 52 Guitars, week 42—Prisma Guitars Diavolo
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!… Another 52 Guitars, week 41—Rivolta Guitars Combinata VII
At first glance, there may not be much that makes the Anderson Guitarworks Bobcat stand out from the pack. Upon closer inspection however, there are several finer details that make this guitar a serious contender for any other single cutaway electric guitar out there.
That’s why it’s in my list!… Another 52 Guitars, week 40—Anderson Guitarworks Bobcat
Righty-o. Time to get back into this Another 52 guitars series. I’ve fallen further behind than I already was in this series and lost my mojo. Luckily for me, the Super Glide Almighty by Koll Guitars is a guitar that has so many variations, it’s the perfect place to start as I revisit all the things that made me start this series. Why? It’s full of all the possibilities this series was created to find.… Another 52 Guitars, week 39—Koll Guitars Super Glide Almighty
I’m super excited by this week’s entry in the incredibly irregular Another 52 guitars series. Partially because I’m writing the post—small victory—but also because the guitar builds I’ve seen from Aviator Custom Guitars look phenomenal. For the purposes of this week’s article header image, I’ve chosen the Warbird 6—it’s one of the many body styles to choose from.
Let’s get into how the Aviator Custom Guitars look and how you’d go about ordering one of your own.… Another 52 Guitars, week 38—Aviator Custom Guitars Warbird
This guitar was always going to be in this series. I never thought it would be in the series as this kind of tribute article though. I also never thought it would follow my other favourite signature style guitar—the model used by Randy Rhoads—the Sandoval Dot V.
Tragically, this is where we find ourselves. The man who was the most influential guitarist of the era I find myself in, has passed away. We will however always have the memories and the awe inspiring EVH Striped Series.
Before I get into what I consider to be the most obvious reasons why I’d desire this week’s guitar, I want to share why Eddie Van Halen’s passing meant so much to me.… Another 52 Guitars, week 37—EVH Striped Series
Subscribers to my email newsletter know that I am a fan of Randy Rhoads. Last week they also discovered that I follow Sandoval Guitars on Instagram. Today I connect all the dots and add the Sandoval Dot V to my Another 52 guitars article series.
Connect all the dots. Brilliant.… Another 52 Guitars, week 36—Sandoval Dot V
I’m noticing a growing trend in this article series. I may developed a fascination for guitar headstocks that feature that 4 and 2 style of machine head placement. I’m OK with that. If it means one day owning a guitar looks anything like the Soultool Katana, I’ll add another guitar to the collection.… Another 52 Guitars, week 35—Soultool Katana
Seeing as how I’ve changed my branding since my last batch of plectrums, I thought I’d better see what custom plectrum manufacturers were out there. Perhaps it’s time to order myself a new batch.
Here are the companies I’ve discovered and am considering using.… Custom plectrum manufacturers
New guitars that look old. It’s not something I’d really got into. Not until I saw the Shabat Guitars Lion Deluxe. Having said that, if reliced guitars are not your thing, then I don’t believe it’s a finish you have to go for with this guitar.
Already the options are awesome!… Another 52 Guitars, week 34—Shabat Guitars Lion Deluxe
