For the Guitarist Who Has Everything

from Most-Expensive.net


It''s that guy''s birthday again. You know, that guy who plays his ''59 Les Paul in his chinchilla-fur underwear in his garage surrounded by his Italian sports cars. This year you''re prepared with $4000 picks made from meteorite. Except that you''d have to be that guy to afford them in the first place. Shit. Well, at least you know they exist.

The Tele Relic Experiment

from Electric Guitar Review


The Electric Guitar Review guys bought a Tele off of eBay to tear apart and refinish with a homebrewed relic job. The update posts are funny, and keep you waiting for the next one, though they''re slightly sporadic.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
