NAMM 2015: Ibanez JS25ART Anniversary Signature Joe Satriani Guitar

I’ve been a massive Joe Satriani fan since I picked up the electric guitar in 1988 and immediately wanted an Ibanez JS the moment they were released in 1990, it wasn’t actually until 2008 that I bought one, a black pearl JS1000. It was a great guitar, sounded fantastic, but as G.A.S. took hold of me (as it does regularly) I ended up selling it to fund my Suhr S4. Hey at least I finally followed through on m ...

NAMM 2015: Fender Sergio Vallin Signature Model

I’ll admit I have no idea who Servio Vallin is (apparently he is in Mexican quartet Maná the world’s biggest Latin rock band) but I think this is a very interesting signature Fender model as it seems more based on a pawn shop model than most signature models. In fact this is an all new body shape which is sort of an offset Stratocaster. The wood combination is classic Fender with an Alder body, Maple neck a ...

NAMM 2015: New Fender Dave Murray Stratocaster

Iron Maiden’s Dave Murray has been playing hot-rodded Fender Strats his entire career and this one is just that. The Dave Murray California Series Stratocaster may look fairly traditional but it is loaded with 3 Seymour Duncan humbuckers and a Floyd Rose locking trem.

NAMM 2015: Washburn Travel Guitar With Pickup

It might look weird but the new Washburn new Travel Guitar is super compact and includes a microphone pickup. The guitar features a solid spruce top and a full size 24″ scale. Strangely, I think, it comes complete with a soft shell case that includes a shoulder strap, “instructional CD ROM”, guitar strap and 3 picks. I personally would have thought it would have been better to have a smaller tough gig bag? ...
