An incredible, one of a kind electric guitar, handmade using layers of laminated scrap skateboard wood by 2ndShot’s John Gibson (so we guess it’s a Gibson guitar of sorts). It’s fully playable, with Humbucker and hand-wound single coil pickups, and a maple neck.
Jack White’s Third Man Records and Loog Guitars created this kit for kids and kids at heart. The diminutive 3-string electric guitar kit provides the satisfaction of having built your own instrument before you start playing it. We dig the pickguard, made from a vinyl record.
Inside the back of Yamaha’s innovative acoustic guitars is an actuator that vibrates against the guitar’s body in response to the strings. This gives you built-in chorus and reverb effects that you can adjust with the built-in control knobs. Runs on two AA batteries.
This diminutive device lets you strum, play and fret like a real guitar, but you can carry it anywhere, and play in complete privacy. The Jamstik wirelessly connects with iOS or Mac systems, and is compatible with MIDI apps. Save 40% in The Awesomer Shop.
While we were touring the mountains in the new 2016 Camaro SS (yeah, hard life, we know), we dropped by the Bozeman, Montana factory where Gibson Acoustic has been crafting guitars for the last 30 years. Incredibly, almost every step of the process is still done by hand.
Musician Ian Ethan Case previews a bit of his new album Run Toward the Mountains, as his fingers fly across all 18 strings of his double-necked guitar. At times, his hands were moving so fast, we thought he was Doc Ock. The 92-minute double album drops 11/24/15.
