Gibson has rolled out the new Gary Clark Jr. SG.
Quite an unusual pickup combi here where we get three P90s loaded into the SG. Not sure how the pickup selector works here, but it should be attractive for P90 and/or Gary Clark Jr. fans.

Cool looking guitars from ESP. The ESP model is only limited to 25 pieces world-wide while the LTD model is a limited edition of 666 world-wide.
ESP KH Ouija Natural
Featuring neck-thru construction and a host of cool features like scalloped fretboard, maple pickup covers, special case & certs, as well as EMG pickups, this one should cater to die-hard fans at US$12000 retail.
We’re talking all-out flashy-ness here. Wow.
LTD KH Ouija Natural
The overall design remains largely the same but for the absence of maple pickup covers and premium parts such as Gotoh tuners. Still a very cool looking guitar and the retail price of US$1399 is definitely easier on the pocket.

It seems like Epi is concentrating a lot on signature models these days.
Tommy Thayer “White Lightning” Explorer
The metallic white Explorer is loaded with two Seymour Duncan JBs and comes with plenty of goodies such as custom hardcase, Grover tuners and ebony fretboard.
Those picture cards and certs are very much the standard with Epi signature guitars, but that strap is flashy indeed.
Matt Heafy “Snofall” Les Paul Custom 6 and 7 String
The phenolic fretboard and white EMGs make the guitar look pretty radical. Other niceties include straplocks and special heel contour for better fret access.
Bjorn Gelotte “Jotun” Les Paul Custom
This one even has a bottle opener at the back. Wow.
We will see a USB port for charging the phone… one day. 🙂

EBMM has released the Special Edition St. Vincent guitars to support her latest album Masseduction.
Some really cool colours out there and each variant is limited to only 3 pieces world-wide. Wow.
The neon pink one is just one of those oddball guitars that has Guitarbear in the “Like It” camp. Not so sure about EBMM headstocks, but the pink one just looks uber cool.
Other features include stainless steel frets, 3 DiMarzio mini humuckers, Schaller locking tuners, and special ebony fretboard with inlays. Oh, and don’t forget that each guitar will come with special edition of the Masseduction vinyl.

Following the Anaconda Burst Les Pauls, Gibson has launched the limited edition Slash Firebirds.
This may come as a surprise because most of us would only associate the LP to the GnR guitarist. But hey, Slash can play whatever guitar he likes.
Only 25 of each are made. The Trans Black version retails at US$6199 while the Trans White version goes for US$7699.
Features include reliced finish, beautiful maple caps, Slash endorsed pickups and special pickguard with Slash’s logo.
Probably good for serious Slash fans/collectors.
