Best Gear of 2015: Guitars

Published: Mon December 21, 2015  News Feed
Whether you play guitar, keyboards, drums or DJ, you were spoilt for choice in 2015. We've seen some great gear released in the past 12 months... here's our pick of some of the best!

Best Music gear 2015


Blackstar Fly 3

Blackstar Fly 3
This mini amp was a BIG hit in 2015. Tiny in size, yes, but huge in sound! Unlike other mini amps of the same size, this is much more versatile - it has an optional extension cab for true stereo sound, digital "tape-style" delay sound, 2-channels and line input. The perfect micro amp for beginners or pros alike, great fun to play! VIEW FLY 3 PRODUCTS

A big shout-out should go for other new Blackstar releases, such as the ID:Core Beam Bluetooth Amp in Limited-Edition Blood Red, perfect for home practice and designed to work well with different types of instruments: electro-acoustic guitar, electric guitar or bass guitars alike. It also works as a bluetooth speaker, something that's also a great feature. The ID:Core Beam is more high-spec'ed, and therefore more expensive, than the Fly 3 - but totally worth the money! And it looks great, too!

Blackstar ID: Core Beam 40 - red

Epiphone AFD Slash Pack

Epiphone Slash Pack
Epiphone did a superb job with this Slash-signature guitar pack, which was actually announced last year and arrived in time for Christmas, and since then remained a firm favourite of our customers for the past 12 months. The reason is simple - a great quality starter pack that even the more experienced players will enjoy! Like Slash said, he didn't have access to anything this good when he was learning the guitar, so new generation of guitarists are very lucky, indeed! Thank you, Epiphone! VIEW DETAILS

Vox AC10
Vox AC10 valve amp
The Vox AC10 was a welcome addition to the AC family, perfectly sitting between the smaller AC4 and the bigger, more expensive AC15. The AC10 is the best value choice if you want a tube amp to use in recording sessions, practice at home and to gig with. VIEW MORE

Martin Ed Sheeran X-Signature Guitar
Ed Sheeran X-Signature guitar
The Martin Ed Sheeran X-Signature electro-acoustic was an instant hit. This limited-edition guitar is a perfect replica of Sheeran's favourite acoustic, giving their fans the chance to own a great instrument like their idol's. There are still some small quantities available, so if you fancy one, you'd better hurry! VIEW MORE

Boss DD500 Digital Delay
Boss DD500 Digital delay

Boss revisited its past with the great Waza series, which marked the welcome return of one of its most legendary fx pedals ever, the DM2 Analog Delay. But the hottest pedal they've released was the Boss DD-500 Digital Delay, the most versatile delay they've ever made, giving Strymon a run for their money. Great for using with guitars, synthesizers... your imagination is the limit! VIEW MORE DETAILS

TC Helicon Voicelive 3 Extreme
TC Electronics VoiceLive 3 Extreme

The TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 Extreme is the ultimate multi-FX pedal for the solo singer/songwriter, with dedicated mic and guitar inputs and stereo outputs for each. An important tool to give the artist full control of their sound, rather than chance it with sound engineers! A great piece of gear! VIEW MORE DETAILS

Epiphone Tommy Thayer White Lightning Signature Les Paul
Epiphone Tommy Thayer White Lightning Les Paul
Whether you're a big Kiss fan or not, you got to admit - this is one very cool and unique Les Paul, the most special Les Paul Epiphone has released in 2015. No pics can truly do justice to the beauty of this Tommy Thayer White Lightning Les Paul, let's be honest: with sparkly top and chrome pickup guard, this baby was made to be seen onstage! VIEW MORE

Gibson Les Paul Studio 2015
Gibson Les Paul Studio 2015
And talking about Les Paul guitars, of course we had to mention Gibson! The 2015 Gibson Les Paul Studio models (in Desert Burst and Manhattan Midnight finishes) were proof that Gibson can make stunning guitars at more affordable prices, too! No wonder these guitars were some of our best-selling in 2015. VIEW MORE

Fender Special Run Standard Stratocaster, Black with Maple Fingerboard

Fender Special Run Standard Stratocaster, Black w/ Maple fingerboard
One of the coolest Fender guitars that landed in our warehouse in 2015 was this stunning Fender Special Run Strat in Black... does it look familiar to you? Well, there aren't that many black Strats with black scratchplate, aged pickup covers and knobs, and maple neck (with 1950's "spaghetti" logo) out there... but one person who does play one is Pink Floyd's David Gilmour! This affordable Strat looks almost like a replica of his signature guitar, but at a much lower price! This Strat is a great instrument and a fantastic bargain, which took us by surprise this year... but if you fancy one, hurry - stocks are very limited! VIEW MORE

Roland JC-40 Jazz Chorus amp
Roland JC40 Jazz Chorus

The JC40 is a more compact and affordable version of the legendary JC-120 Jazz Chorus, a favourite amongst jazz musicians (of course!) but also used by acts such as The Cure and The Police in the 80's. Fantastic for clean tones and lush chorus, the JC40 is a great gigging amp, so expect to see those on a stage near you, soon! VIEW MORE
