Fender and Gibson Hate This Guitar Company!

DSC02808

For a crazy good price of $199, you get set neck construction, a carved neck joint, coil splitting, Grover tuners, a beautiful satin flame finish and much more! Harley Benton hasn’t lost a beat with their SC Custom II model. Veteran guitar companies are feeling the pressure when you can get this much quality for a price this low. Let’s check out the Harley Benton SC Custom 2.

 

 


You’ve Never Seen A Guitar Like This!

How many frets does this guitar have?? And why are some of them missing? It’s 7 strings… but it’s not a normal 7 string guitar. The whole thing is put together with beautiful neck through construction. This was an IYV prototype that was never made into a production guitar. But it’s totally awesome and wish it was a real production guitar.

 


Guitar TONE Has Peaked!

Thumb 2

A truly classic sound, from such a simple guitar. When you want to get a beautiful, traditional guitar tone, sometimes you have to return to the classic designs. This All In One Guitars’ AIO T3 relic tele style guitar uses a decades old design with a few modern touches like brass saddles and an ebony fretboard. Getting an incredible tone from this guitar is just effortless.

Viper Guitars: Fully Customizable and USA Made!

edit-DSC02550

When attending the NAMM convention, you always hope that you find a hidden gem among the face palm inducing bad ideas. This year, I was introduced to Viper Guitars and I’m shocked that I didn’t know about this before. Floyd Rose, 24 frets, Seymour Duncans, compound neck profile, and looks for days! This is exactly what I love in a shred guitar! This guitar I’m checking out today (borrowed) is called the Edge model and is fully customizable.

Vola Guitars Michael Keene Signature! Green Power!

Thumb 1

What do you get when you combine a technical death metal master with Japanese craftsmenship? A high end instrument that’s made to handle the most demanding guitar riffs and face melting solos. This is the Michael Keene signature guitar from Vola Guitars. With Fishman Fluence pickups, a Japanese made Gotoh Floyd Rose style bridge, dark ebony fretboard, 24 frets, and build quality that is second to none. This is the kind of guitar that makes you sound better! Let’s check this out.


The Firefly Guitars EVH Inspired Super Strat!

Thumb 2

I love Firefly Guitars… but they’ve really outdone themselves this time! Mahogany body, roasted maple neck and fretboard, stainless steel rounded ball end frets, locking tuners, a Floyd Rose style trem, AND an incredible EVH inspired paint job! For $269? Get right out of here. This is my new favorite Firefly guitar.

 


The Best SUSTAIN I’ve Ever Heard!

Thumb 1

Wood pickup rings that match the neck, a graphite nut, an ash wood body, a roller bridge, and an electric cobalt blue finish… with matching headstock. There’s a lot of cool poured into this guitar. The part that really impresses me is the sustain though! The notes just never end. This is the Bootlegger Hounder. California based with manufacturing in South Korea. Let’s check this out!


The New SBS Guitar Models Are UNDENIABLE!

Thumb 2

After the launch of the Guitar Fetish SBS (Steve Brown Sound) guitars last year, many guitarists had complaints: The frets are too small! Only relic finishes? Are these necks REALLY roasted maple?? Thankfully GFS has addressed these issues in their new super strat SBS models. AND they have released an even more inexpensive model! Let’s check these out.
