50 Great Guitars

Excellent application if you like guitars. Content has been taken from the Feb 2009 issue of Guitarist and features 50 guitars the Guitarist staff says everyone should play before they die. Plenty of gorgeous guitar pictures, reviews, price guides and even a video. It is well worth the £1.19 price

My only minor niggle is that they say the James Trussart Rusty Holey Steelcaster was bought by some chap from the Kooks. It wasn't, as I own it, having bought it from a friend who bought the guitar new and let Guitarist review it. Ah well, Guitarist have promised to fix the error when they update the application.

In fact just noticed they have changed the text to say the Kooks chap liked the review so went out and bought one

Great resource!

A guitar player's dream! 50 off the most gorgeous guitars ever, illustrated with some incredibly beautiful photography, background info on each guitar, buying advice, prices (even for vintage instruments) and some really useful in-depth features on some of the more popular guitars including video and detail shots. Essential for people who love guitars and beautiful photography - worth it for the gallery of Custom Shop Strats alone!
