M80-VEG-2

Musicians who play electric guitar now have an alternative case option for their instruments that will not only protect them, but will prevent the need to stoop and squat to remove the instrument from the case. Most guitar cases require you to lay the case on a flat surface to remove them, but the Mono [...]

guitdoorbell-2

We've probably all been in shops where a little bell tied to the door chimes to announce someone is coming in.  How would you like something similar, but more musical, to announce a door opening - maybe strumming a guitar?  Place a Guitdoorbell over a door, and the swinging of the door will move a mounted [...]

I've purchased several guitar tuners over the years, but the D'Addario NS Micro Headstock Tuner is the smallest clip on tuner that I've tried so far. It's only 1.25 inches long and can clip on a wide variety of stringed instruments such as guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, and more. Its adjustable ratchet clip and [...]

voyage-air-folding-guitar

Travel guitars that I've seen don't look much like a regular acoustic guitar.  The ones I've seen tend to be narrow, stick-like instruments.  I'm not a musician, but it seems to me that the smaller body would negatively impact the sound produced by the guitar.  I don't know what the shortcomings of the Voyage-Air travel [...]

In order to master the guitar, you need to practice... a LOT. The old saying "practice makes perfect" is very true, so today I wanted to show all of you wannabe shredders a tool that you can take with you so you can practice ANYWHERE. Guitars aren't small, so having one with you all the [...]

Korg Pitchclip -1

Guitar tuners, what can I say about them? They come in various shapes and sizes. They are digital and analogue. They have inline and audio versions. But what I can say about me and guitar tuners is, I can never find one when I need one. The Pitchclip from Korg helps solve that issue. Korg [...]

The Korg Headtune tuner takes all the mystery out of tuning guitar, ukulele and basses, so new players can concentrate on learning to play music instead of figuring out how to keep their instrument in tune. Shaped like the headstock of a guitar, bass or ukulele, the tuner clips on and has an easy to understand [...]

I've seen a couple of TV shows about luthiers, and building guitars seems like a very interesting activity with a beautiful and useful end product.  Of course, it takes skill to make the wooden enclosure for any guitar, and the electronics for an electric guitar only adds to the complexity of the project.  This Mini [...]

squier-by-fender-usb-guitar

Guitarists who want to record directly into their computer or iPad have had to rely on some sort of interface, and The Gadgeteer has reviewed some of them.  Some work better than others, and some require proprietary software for best results.  Fender has released a guitar that doesn't require a third party interface.  Their Squier [...]

Guitarists who perform live (and even those who don't) are always on the look out for new ways to attach an extra pick to their instruments. When you're playing music in front of people and accidentally drop your pick, you can't take time to search around for another one in the middle of a tune. [...]

Some of his projects are shown on his ODD website.  Case in point his Spider electric guitar which is cut using a EOS Formiga P100 (which I'm guessing is probably a little out of the price range of [...]
