Welcome to The Signature Issue of Guitar Magazine, in which we explore the phenomenon of artist-signature instruments and more recent variations on the theme, with YouTubers getting in on the act and stars of the magnitude of Ed Sheeran launching a whole range of products emblazoned with their name. As well as reviewing a pair of new Sheeran by Lowden acoustics and checking out the latest affordable iteration of St. Vincent’s signature model courtesy of Sterling by Music Man, we also find out about the five years of painstaking R&D behind British blues guitarist Aynsley Lister’s new Rift signature amp. If you’ve ever wondered exactly how much blood, sweat and solder goes into the process of developing a bespoke amplifier to an artist’s specifications, head to p112 to read our review…

ACOUSTA-TONIC? Dear Guitar Magazine, I was interested to read within these hallowed pages that Fender is having another stab at the electric/acoustic hybrid. This has always been a format that delivered far less than it promised. Yet it has always been a beguiling prospect on paper and so I’ve owned two of their previous attempts with mixed results. The first was a plastic-backed and wood-fronted Telecoustic, made in China, with the earlier examples having a piezo pickup only. A later model would look somewhat like its new incarnation with a single-coil in the neck position. It was a relatively cheap and cheerful instrument that, with time, tended to crack around the neck pocket. It must have been an 80s obsession, as Kramer would release an almost identical instrument that proved no more…

“I STAY WITHIN SIMPLE PARAMETERS AND UNCONSCIOUSLY PLAY A PATTERN, THAT’S HOW I FINGER-PICK. IT’S NEVER SUPER INTENTIONAL, UNLESS THERE’S A MELODY LINE I HAVE TO PRACTISE” When did you first pick up a guitar? “I used to play my dad’s – a Martin from, maybe, the 50s. It had a giant hole in the side because his brother threw a shoe at him when he was little. He took it to the factory in Pennsylvania and they were like: ‘We could patch it, but it’s going to change the sound quality and cost ‘x’ amount.’ So he lived with it falling apart. It sounds really deep and resonant, and just gorgeous.” Does every song start out with you picking up a guitar? “I don’t write with people and I never really have a…

Malmö-based rock band Royal Republic’s high-energy shows have made them a mainstay on the scene in mainland Europe. Their new album has been a journey of learning to embrace, rather than suppress, their unique tendencies along with their self-proclaimed ‘nerdiness’, which has inspired a major breakthrough in the band’s creative output. We asked guitarist Hannes Irengård for his five guitar highlights from the band’s forthcoming upcoming album. FIREMAN & DANCER “This tune has a riff which goes along with the other guitar playing and they just should not work together… but they do, creating this awesome rhythmical pattern. The main riff was played on a 12-string Rickenbacker; it’s the guitar part from the demo. We re-recorded it for the actual recording sessions, but we ended up using the demo take because it…
