This Week in Guitar

This Week in Guitar is a weekly roundup of guitar-related news. I generally try to find the lesser known stories and not what’s written about in the major guitar publications.

This Week in Guitar #20 – Review updates, cigar box guitars, Top 10 Black Sabbath Riffs

I’m thinking about updating the Art of Shred reviews with a “salability score.” Certain guitars hold value better than others and my hunch is you’d want to see my real world results from churning the guitars I buy, review, and get rid of to fund other guitars to buy and review. Right now this is […]

This Week in Guitar #18 – Yvette Young’s hilarious ad, a super-modded $150 Bullet Mustang, and more …

My goal with TWiG is to bring you unique or maybe not widely shared stories and information. Some weeks there’s almost too much to choose from, but for the past couple of weeks there has been a lot less. I assume it’s due to the holidays and the whole industry being focused on holiday sales

This Week in Guitar #17 – my missed ’56 Les Paul, Tele-Strat hybrid, and more …

I hope you got through Black Friday week relatively unscathed. There weren’t any deals worth a damn as far as I was concerned, except for effects pedals. But considering the state of the guitar market that’s not too surprising. (I did re-up my JamPlay membership, though, because it’s got a lot of fun lessons.) “Fun”

This Week in Guitar #16 – Glarry GTL review, best selling guitars of 2021, Billie Joe signature Epiphone, and more …

Happy Monday! I posted a new review last week. The Glarry GTL got the Art of Shred in-depth written and video review treatment. If you’ve been thinking about buying basically the cheapest guitar you can buy then you really need to read and watch the review first. What else did I find interesting this week?

This Week in Guitar #15 – Bananana Mandala, free guitars for an elementary school, Minicorda travel guitar, and more …

I posted another video last week (you should subscribe! I post Shorts videos regularly too). This time something a little different. A pedal demo. It’s not a review because pedals like this one (a glitch pedal by Bananana Effects) is for a certain type of person with certain tastes. My opinion doesn’t matter. But what

This Week in Guitar #14 – Overpriced brands, Firefly FFLG, AliExpress guitar pedals, a wholesome family, and more …

Oh yeah! I finished another review this week. Just a note: Recording, editing, and writing one review takes approximately 20 hours. That’s in addition to actually playing and enjoying (hopefully, anyway) the guitars I review! So with that … Video of the week: The Firefly FFLG SG-style guitar review And if you want to read

This Week in Guitar #12 – Guitar Center bankruptcy IPO, weird sounds, most expensive ukulele

I’m finally getting ready to post another review here at Art of Shred, for the Orangewood Morgan Spruce Live. The video is done, but I need to finish up the text. I’m shooting for this Wednesday. Fingers crossed! Anyway, onward with this week in guitar … Video of the week: Weird sounds with the Pladask

This Week in Guitar #11 – glitch pedal demo, Micheal Angelo Batio double-guitar, reclaimed guitars, and more …

I’ve spent far too much time this week watching glitch pedal demos. (I take that back, there is no such thing as spending too much time watching glitch pedal demos.) And with that … Video of the week: Pladask Elektrisk Baklengs pedal demo Man reunited with guitar after 45 years I’m a sucker for these
