If you are anything like me, first off, I’m sorry; secondly, your guitars probably could use quite a bit of ’spicing up’ as it were. All of my guitars, for reasons I’m not quite sure of, are pretty basic, bland and have little, if any, decorating or customizing. This, is unfortunate. This, is something we should all change. Lucky for all of us, well all of those un-lucky enough to be like me, I found something that might just solve our problems.
Three words will answer our problems: Pin. Up. Girls. Yep, you heard me right, how about slapping some classic 1950’s Pin-Up Girls onto your favorite guitar. There is no quicker way to add some old-school style and charm to your guitar, doesn’t matter if it’s electric or acoustic, old or new. If you’re a fan of tattoos you already know, pin-up girls just don’t go out of style, and when it comes to Rock & Roll, they’ve always been a match made in heaven.
Thanks to the folks over at Strat-O-Blogster, they supplied a few links to some awesome places to stock up on decals and stickers that can help you dig that guitar of yours out of the bland basement. I don’t know what we’re waiting for, get some decals, and get them now!

Happy Friday friends. Today we’re going to start rocking what is going to be a new feature on GuitarBassMan…funky, awesome, rare and unique guitar videos every Friday morning. Why not start your weekend off a little early with some rare glimpses into rock and roll past, present and future with some video proof of everything from hardcore shredding to tearjerking acoustic solos?
To start things off, I thought who better to start things off with than one of the best, of the best, of the best of all time, Jimi Hendrix? This is obviously from a long, long time ago and is a pretty awesome, fun performance of Purple Haze and shows just how laid back Hendrix is when he’s playing.
Without further ado, enjoy Hendrix, enjoy Purple Haze and more than anything, enjoy your weekend. Got any videos you are dying to see, or any videos you think we should all enjoy? Leave us some comments, leave us an email, or send us some recommendations!

When a guitar legend like The Edge starts talking about guitars, my advice to you, is to sit still, listen quietly, and take some serious notes. While he’s not as loud, flashy or gregarious as many rock and roll legends, The Edge has clearly earned himself a spot in the annals of Rock History. To hear him talk about each one of his favorite guitars, the songs they’ve produced, and the love he has for them, I hate to say it but it gives a guitar lover like me chills.
First and foremost, his love for guitars is apparent. Just look behind him during the interviews and get extremely jealous at the sheer NUMBER of guitars he has in his collection now. Wow. Nevertheless, a chance to hear a musician as talented as The Edge talk about and play his favorite guitars is a pretty special, not-to-be-missed opportunity.
