In the debut episode of our new video series, Gruhn Guitars' Greg Voros gives us the lowdown on an ultra-rare guitar and amp, while John Bohlinger demos their luscious tones as only he can.

When it comes to vintage guitars, few places on earth can even hope to compete with the expertise and inventory of George Gruhn’s mainstay shop in Nashville. Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars is one of the most referenced books you can find on the subject, and the crew at Gruhn Guitars is second to none at the history, inspection, certification, repair, and upkeep of fine guitars. They’ve also got a pretty stellar collection of vintage amps. So stellar, in fact, that we’ve decided to partner with Gruhn Guitars to give you an opportunity to hear notable guitars and amps from their collection, as played by Premier Guitar’s own John Bohlinger, as well as to learn what makes the rare specimens special from repair shop manager Greg Voros. So without further ado, we give you the debut of our latest video series, Axes & Artifacts.
