GALLERY: Musikmesse 2015 - Guitars & Basses
April 20, 2015
The most interesting and unusual axes from Europe's biggest gear show.
At Musikmesse we're so accustomed to seeing sophisticated boutique guitars that blend Swiss Army knife utility with posh, Mercedes-Benz-like appointments that it was a treat to see JJoye Guitars gloriously gaudy new Starlette. Decked out like a '50s dinette, it's equipped with custom pickups wound to evoke old-time rock 'n' roll attitude, an alder body, a heelless maple neck, ebony fretboard, locking tuners, and either a Tune-o-matic and a stop-tail bridge or a Duesenberg vibrato.
