Overall, a serious tool for the creative musician that's well worth trying.

While the 511 is not without fault, it's hard to criticise such a considered and realistically priced instrument. Aria has made a very convincing guitar that holds up to scrutiny where it counts.

Usable for so much more than the rock and metal a Floyd Rose implies, the 'Floyd' Custom 24 is yet another addition to the PRS rack of greatest hits.

It might not be the greatest acoustic guitar you've ever got your hands on, but it's certainly got plenty of spark where it counts.

A guitar that's as fun as it is unique, there's a surprising amount of tonal flexibility to hand, too, which, if you ask us, makes the Sonoro a must-try.

If you're into the aesthetics, the Modena Semitone is worth more than a look.

An acquired taste perhaps, but a commendable alternative pitch shifter.

Anyone on the lookout for a cut-price, gig-ready valve combo will hail the ValveKing.

This is an instrument built for intimidation. Oh yeah, it looks suave, but it's a brawler - and yes, it's also available in black.
