Guitar Review! Home of guitar pedal, pedal board, amp, and guitar reviews.

As musicians we go online to watch and read reviews of new and used gear. You want as much information as you can get before spending your hard earned money. Musicians are never satisfied, or short of opinions. This website is a compilation of gear purchases combined with lessons learned. Maybe you can add some comments and throw your hat into the ring as well while you’re here.

Steinberger Synapse Review SS2F

You know for a long time, Steinberger was kind of the joke of the 80's - from the skinny-tie foo-foo pop bands that used them to the retro bands that have them on stage today. If you play a lot, the one thing that can really do you in over time is a really, really...

Luna Andromeda Bass

These Luna Andromeda double cutaway basses are awesome - especially the black version with the dragon design! These things are pretty lightweight and everyone I've talked to so far likes to gig them out. It's only 7 lbs, and these basses are pretty darn responsive for...

Tobias Growler Bass

The Tobias Growler bass is definitely a lot of funk for your money! You can't buy an American made guitar for this price - that's for sure! The active electronics are awesome and the growler will sing whether you're funking out with slap bass or playing classic rock...

HSS Strat Review

This is my "HSS Strat Review" - or "What I Hate Standard Strats!" I never used to to think I was really either a "Gibson" or "Fender" kinda guy. The first guitar I became really partial to was my Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow body. Well, now that it's rewired with...
