John Frusciante's Fender Jaguar
Though they were already the critical darlings of college radio, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1992 album Blood Sugar Sex Magik catapulted the SoCal foursome to true superstardom. The disc was chock-full of classic Peppers' jams, but it was the ballad "Under the Bridge" that really set the stage for their eventual world domination. Guitarist John Frusciante channeled his inner Hendrix (specifically "Little Wing") for the tune's intro and chord pattern to craft an enduring classic. This '66 Fender Jaguar is the guitar he used in the video. It's currently on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Caracas, Venezuela.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
