Guitar Player - December 2014 - Low Budget Electrics

In the December 2014 issue of Guitar Player, we focus on budget electric roundup. On a budget? Who's not?!? We put eight great guitars that street for $499 or less through their paces. Electric guitars in the sub-$500 category often pack substantial bang-for-the-buck, and, as we've found in this group, there are some clear winners that can truly stand up to the scrutiny when it comes to tone, playability, and construction.

Then, we get up close and personal with the gigs, the gear, the guts, and the glory that make playing guitar the coolest thing in the world. Also, Adam Levy takes a musical journey through the cities of the world, Gail Zappa gives Frank Zappa a ten -foot tribute, and Carlos Santana gets bookish, and more!

Now hear this features snappy profiles of players you should know. Otherwise, who formed eight years ago in Las Vegas, Nevada, took the indie route for its initial release before signing on to Century Media for 2012's True Love Never Dies, The album put three singles in the Top 40 of the U.S. Active Rock chart - "Soldiers," "I Don't Apologize (1000 Pictures)," and "Die For You" - and its success paved the way for this fall's Peace at All Costs [Century Media].

Finally, we feature Johnny Marr who details the wild, live-energy strategies in play for Playland, Ernest Ranglin Jamaican Jazz King, Blake Mills projects on Heigh Ho, and Robin Trower who reflects on the 40th anniversary of Bridge of Sighs and celebrates the now.
