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?

Reverb’s Best Selling Guitars of 2021

Epiphone releases Billie Joe Armstrong signature Les Paul Junior

I came of age in the Dookie era and haven’t kept up on what he’s up to, but I always think of a Strat when I think of Billie Joe Amstrong. see: Basket Case The Les Paul Junior looks pretty sweet, though.

That’s all for this week! See you next Monday.
