100 Gifts For Guitarists

From Portable Busking Amplifiers to Percussive Guitar Attachments

— November 19, 2014 — Tech
If you're on the hunt for gifts for guitarists this holiday season, there is a wide array of things you can choose from.

If you're rolling in the big bucks and really want to make a big statement, you could go out there and buy the axe-shredder in your life a new guitar or perhaps an amplifier -- there are amps suited for bedroom practice, stage performances and even street busking.

But what if the guitarist you're thinking of is still a novice whose playing is like fingernails on a chalkboard for people around him or her? This person may have use for a pair of quality headphones to connect to their amplifier. This will spare their family members/roommates/neighbors the agony, and will allow the guitarist to focus on his or her music rather than protests of naysayers.
