I visited the Ronda Guitar Festival recently and saw this strikingly different travel guitar. Travel guitars have been made since guitars have been made but this one is really something else.
Here we are with a “new” “old” Gibson design, the Theodore.
The Peguin range from Gretsch covers a few models all of which have a peguin image on the scratch plate which seems to be the only reason for the name. However, it turns out that the real reason the name came about was a desire to produce versions of the White Falcon models and call …
Gibson™ Custom Shop have been involved with the development of this limited-edition tribute guitar based on the specs of ‘59 Les Paul Standard although it is priced a little cheaper than the original or even the Gibson™ Custom Shop version.
If your guitar is not looking strange enough for your image you may want to try the parallel universe.
Another take on the Telecaster for 2019. Moving way on from the Telecoustic, this model has 3 pickups, a Fishman Under-Saddle Transducer, a Fishman Acoustasonic Enhancer and a Fender Acoustasonic Noiseless™ magnetic pickup plus a “Mode Knob” which gives ten different body style and tone wood combinations.
This is a 2018 “Limited Edition” model which retails at approximately £1500 and apart from the crap name, consists of Telecaster Custom Shop pickups, a Telecaster bridge and a Jazzmaster style neck. Oh,and cute new logo on the headstock. The body shape is designed for comfort with the Strat like relief for your arm and belly. I …
Another guitar “inspired” by an artist.

Personally, I like a short scale bass and this one in Daphne Blue with a split-coil pickup, 30” scale and 9.5”-radius fingerboard with …
This “Lefties only” model (Lefties must like a colourful axe) is part of the Steve Vai 30th anniversary issue. The HSH pickup layout has an interesting switch system. Love to try it but I’m right handed. Could be a new project.
A standard USA Strat with a Roland pickup and electronics. Lots of different sounds.
