A well-made, good-sounding taste of Fender's leanest, meanest tone machine.
Michael Brown (Total Guitar)March 7, 2014, 12:00 GMT
The ES2's lush repeats have classic analogue charm without the noise; and if you want to get crazy, the option's there.
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.
Chris Vinnicombe (Guitarist)March 6, 2014, 12:00 GMT
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.
Nick Guppy (Guitarist)February 28, 2014, 12:00 GMT
Mesa scores big time with the Recto-Verb Twenty- Five - it's the best small combo the company has made in ages.
Michael Brown (Total Guitar)February 24, 2014, 12:00 GMT
Like the rest of the DiVill series, it spans a huge tonal territory and excels at just about everything it sets out to do - and at this price, that's no mean feat.
Jonathan Horsley (Total Guitar)February 21, 2014, 12:00 GMT
The RG550XH is a neat twist on the shred axe, but unforgiving for big, fat sausage fingers. Tommy Tedesco might not approve, but we do.
