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 so hopefully we get more interesting things happening in the new year.

Quick follow up on last week’s missed ’56 Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro. I got cash on Monday and emailed the guy. He sold it the day before! Haha. It’s okay, though.

A $150 Squier Bullet Mustang with hundreds of dollars worth of upgrades
