Fender's most polarising electric is updated with a few twists. The result? A cool and affordable platform for experimental indie guitar.
Dave Burrluck (Guitarist)March 10, 2014, 12:00 GMT
More compact and hollow-sounding than an ES-335: a superb jazz, blues and all-round vibe-y electric.

A well-made, good-sounding taste of Fender's leanest, meanest tone machine.
Mick Taylor (Guitarist)March 6, 2014, 16:00 GMT
A superb, pro-grade picker that trades visual niceties for the most important tonal features and build. Needs a pickup as standard, though.

A Fender semi for Gretsch admirers, that conveniently doubles as a fabulous-looking and sounding indie-rock machine.
Dave Burrluck (Guitarist)March 5, 2014, 12:00 GMT
A very competent old-school jazz box that evokes a bygone age and the memory of the great John D'Angelico.
Dave Burrluck (Guitarist)March 3, 2014, 12:00 GMT
A superb take on Fender's finest with hot-rod trickery from one of the world's top players. PRS's finest ever bolt-on electric? We think so.

Big and beefy it may be, but the extended feature set makes it highly versatile. We like those 6L6s, too.

Mesa scores big time with the Recto-Verb Twenty- Five - it's the best small combo the company has made in ages.

This latest-gen JP with new DiMarzio pickups is a great-sounding hybrid magnetic/ piezo axe. Are you man enough?
