The Commuter Strat Scene

Caught this film over the weekend, and I was surprised to see a Strat making an appearance in one of the fight scenes.


Even more surprised that a Strat could be so deadly. The way Liam Neeson wields a Strat makes guys like Pete Townshend look gentle. ๐Ÿ™‚

See the scene and you’ll know what I’m saying.

Epiphone Ltd Ed Slash Les Paul PlusTop

Epi has brought the affordable version of the Slash Signature to the masses with this new release.


In line with the premium Gibson version launched last year, the Standard PlusTop Pro comes loaded with premium features such as actual Seymour Duncan Slash pickups, Sprague caps, special Anaconda Burst finish and fancy hardcases/certs.


In addition, 100 units will be signed by the man himself. I’d expect these to be the collectors’ items.

Announcement – No More Guitar Services


Guitarbear blog will now focus solely on guitar and music news from 2018, thereby making this blog strictly informational and totally free from commercial opportunities.


It’s been a fun two plus years making new friends and improving the guitars that came to me. I thank those who came by and trusted me with their precious guitars.

Off to spending more time with my loved ones and the much needed practice on guitars.
