After a year of owning the S5, I finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase the Material Station. These are my impressions as someone who paid their own money for one and who’s actually used it non-stop for a couple of months, along with some of the things I’ve learned that surprised me due to none of the marketing material or paid reviews having covered them. (more…)
I’ve finally got my hands on one so hang on tight while I give this guitar the complete tear-down and review treatment.
Follow along while I tear this Guild/Citron collaboration down to see what makes it tick while also delving into the history of a fascinating guitar that was only made for a very short time in the mid 1980s.
Designed by Slash of Guns ‘n Roses fame (not to mention Slash’s Snake Pit, Velvet Revolver, and his current collaboration with Myles Kennedy), this guitar is a very unique design that solves a problem that few other guitars can. You see, this instrument is not only a six-string and a 12-string guitar, but the 12-string is an actual acoustic guitar!
This is a big guitar with twice the uh… guitar… of a normal guitar, so this is a big review with almost twice the words of a typical review. That means you should buckle up, crank some Anastasia, and discover what it’s like to own a real Guild Crossroads doubleneck guitar.
Fair warning: this is a long review, and while there’s no math, prepare to be dazzled with science while being dazzled by the guitar.
