Maximum Gear: The 2015 Guitar Player Hall of Fame Awards | DEMOS

October 22, 2015
 
THE MAXIMUM GEAR AWARDS shine a spotlight on the most awesome gizmos we played with this past year. The products could be Editors’ Pick Award winners in 2015 (actually, in this case, from the December 2014 issue through the November 2015 issue), and/or devices that also blew our minds with incredible design, superlative value, transcendent craftsmanship, or fun factor.
 

E L E C T R I C  G U I T A R S
 
Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker
Probably one of the best off-the-shelf Fender Strats you can buy today, and the Shawbucker is one ass-kicker of a pickup.
 
 
 
John Page Custom Ashburn
Made by the co-founder of the Fender Custom Shop, and a truly brilliant evolution of a certain classic solidbody.
 
 
 
Kiesel SCB6
Superb craftsmanship, awesome sounds, great feel, and unique looks. Could make Kiesel/Carvin the brand to beat in the under $1,000 class.
 
 
 
PRS S2 Mira Semi-Hollow
An affordable PRS completely made in the company’s Stevensville, Maryland factory with cool, vintage-sounding pickups. It’s also super light.
 
 
A C O U S T I C  G U I T A R S
 
Epiphone Masterbuilt AJ-45ME
Evokes the classic John Lennon Gibson J-45 with an organic preamp/pickup system and an affordable price tag.
 
 
 
Santa Cruz Brad Paisley
A country superstar builds his dream acoustic, and then shares it with the world.
 
 
 
Taylor Maple Series
Impeccably crafted from sustainably harvested maple grown in Washington State, Taylor’s new Maple Series guitars reflect the design genius of Andy Powers in their outstanding tone and playability.
