Guitar Classics: Ultimate Guitar Collections is out now!

Dive into the treasure troves of Joe Bonamassa, Instagram star Lost in Crystal Canyons, and LA institution Norman’s Rare Guitars.

Ultimate Guitar Collections

Every month in The Guitar Magazine we take a deep dive into a fascinating guitar collection and find out what makes its owner and curator tick. Sometimes the array of instruments on display represents the spoils of a long career in rock, but often we’ll put the spotlight on the well-worn tools of a weekend warrior, or even showcase the wares of a leading vintage dealer.

Joe Bonamassa Guitar Collection

What all these people have in common is their irrepressible passion for the guitar and the music that the instrument has helped to create. We share that passion, and it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re reading this because you do, too. Don’t worry – you are among friends. This is a safe space where nobody minds if you care irrationally about the number of screws on a Stratocaster pickguard, or the dot spacing at the 12th fret. In fact, that level of obsession is positively encouraged.

Lost in Crystal Canyons Guitar Collection

In Ultimate Guitar Collections, you’ll see over 150 jaw-dropping guitars (and some very nice amplifiers and effects, too) that are symptomatic of terminal cases of six-string addiction. For the high-rollers, it’s Bursts and pre-CBS Fenders, but you’ll also find plenty of more affordable vintage prizes that aren’t beyond the reach of us mere mortals.
