Welcome to the Guitar Reviews section of the website. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about guitar players, it’s that they are never satisfied. They are always searching for something new, something old, or something different. I’ve purchased guitar from eBay, Craigslist, from a physical brick and mortar store, a garage sale, flea market, and all the online places like American Musical, Guitar Center, Zzounds, and more. My guitar reviews are a compilation of all this and more…

Robin Medley Guitar

Robin guitars have been around since the early 80's and were manufactured until 2010. I remember seeing ads for Robin guitars in both Guitar Player and Guitar World in the 80's, but hadn't remembered them until recently when I saw one for sale on Craigslist. I decided...

Epiphone Korina Flying V (1958)

The image shown is that of the Joe Bonamassa Epiphone Flying V (1958). Everyone who's read my blog knows of my distaste for Epiphone guitars. Back in the 90's and 2000's the quality was so bad that you had to set them up one you bought one and tighten everything down...

Ovation UK II 1291

Have you ever heard of Ovation UKII electric guitars from the late 70's or early 80's? You have probably only ever thought of Ovation as an acoustic guitar manufacturer. But there was a time when they made electric guitars too. And the electric guitars they made were...

DiPinto Belvedere Guitar Review

You may not have heard of DiPinto guitars before, but the Belevdere is a throwback to old school guitars of the 60's with lots of pizazz and flair. Talk about sparkle and plastic! Think about the days of the old Airline guitars, but with a Les Paul shape and quality...

Gibson ES-339 Custom Shop Review

Gibson released ES-339 custom in 2007. They released the ES-335 in 1958, and everyone knows that distinctive semi-hollow body guitar for it's fat resonant tone. That's a very versatile guitar that can work equally as well for jazz, rock, country, or anything in...

Washburn X50 Review

This is my review of the Washburn X50 and X50 Pro FE guitars with the Buzz Feiten tuning system. Another manufacturer that I think is highly underrated is Washburn Guitars. For 100 years they have been making quality instruments, but since the 80's Washburn has been...

Why I Love My EVH Wolfgang Special

This isn't a review as much as it is they story of how I came to own my favorite and probably most played guitar of all time. My white EVH Wolfgang special. This is what it looked like the day it arrived in the mail. I had seen pictures of it online, but I had no idea...

My new Fender Thinline 72 RI is Awesome!

This is my new Fender Thinline 72 RI (reissue): The image is stock, I'll post one of my playing it soon. I used to be a Gibson man, and I was kind of "anti-Fender". I liked classic rock, metal, 80's hair bands, modern rock. But the last couple years I've been heavy...

My Favorite Signature Guitars

Seems like everyone and their brother has a "signature guitar" anymore. You seem them from time to time in Guitar Center or the latest Musician's Friend catalog, but never all at once. The kind of seem to come and go. I decided to list my favorite signature guitar...

ESP LTD Cobweb Guitar

Esp has been making these LTD series guitars for awhile now, and you can't beat what you can get for the money. They look great, play fast like a dream, and their resale value is pretty high. I'm sorry, you don't get half of the guitar for the same money in an...

Kerry King BC Rich Flying V

Kerry King is the god of the speed metal guitar, and he's been using BC Rich guitars for year to melt the faces off all his fans! That's probably why BC Rich has been known for years a basically a "metal" guitar, and why Kerry continues to make his mark with his BC...

Les Paul Menace Guitar

What a beautiful guitar! Gibson has been updating the tried and true standard look of the Les Paul and releasing many special editions specially suited for metal, and the "Menace" is no exception. The Les Paul Menace delivers take-no-prisoners looks and face melting...

Modulus Quantum Q5 Bass

Modulus makes some high end bass guitars and the Quantum Q5 is no exception!! These are a bass players bass, a "wish list" instrument if you will for many - not exactly what you would get as a beginner or intermediate player. Many people who have played gibson,...

Peavey Cirrus BXP Bass

The Peavey Cirrus BXP 5 string bass has some of the best tone I've heard in a long time! It's just so bright and snappy. There was a time when I didn't want to own anything Peavey at all because I remembered what some of the quality was like about a decade ago - but...

Used BC Rich Warlock Guitar

Looking for a used BC Rich Warlock Guitar? You couldn't find a better bargain if you tried! If you were reading my post the other day, you know that I sold my Agile 3100 and PRS Santana guitars because I bought a 1991 ESP Horizon (which I LOVE!). The ESP is the first...

Epiphone Futura Prophecy Guitar

How can you resist a guitar in the Explorer style? I've always been a fan o EMG pickups - especially for the more modern styles. The Future is well suited for metal, modern rock, or alternative guitar playing. The Epiphone Futura Prophecy EX Electric Guitar is loaded...

Blueridge BR-243 Acoustic Guitar

The Blueridge BR-243 is a quality guitar, well-made, and full sounding. You may not have appreciation of the vintage acoustic guitar, this reissue pays homage to the great luthier work of the prewar era. Crafted with a select solid spruce top, hand-carved X-bracing,...
