The last 12 months have seen big changes at Gibson Brands Inc, with the aim of the company’s Original Collection being to give Gibson fans the guitars they want at prices that won’t break the bank. As we head towards 2020, does this horned trio of red devils prove that vintage-style SGs still deliver the goods?
The Silverwood was described as “Supro’s finest electric” in the 1960 catalogue. This reissue combines simplified controls with in vogue Gold Foil pickups.

If you’ve ever wondered whether vintage tone is in the wood or the pickups, this pair of custom-colour pre-CBS Fender Stratocasters may help settle the issue.
Public Service Broadcasting and The Horrors are fans, and Dave Grohl was recently seen playing one. If you’re looking for an inspiring retro electric with an identity all of its own, it’s time to get hip to Fidelity Guitars.
Blackstar brings its small-amp knowhow to the popular amPlug range – could these be the best headphone amps on the planet?
