GIFTS FOR GUITAR PLAYERS AND GIFTS FOR MUSICIANS THEY WILL ACTUALLY WANT AND REMEMBER YOU FOR!
I think we can all agree that:
Gifts for a guitar player or gifts for musicians generally are not easy to buy. Sure, you can buy the guitar player in your life (or for yourself if you're a guitarist) some token gift you think they might like...but getting something a guitar player or musician actually wants, will actually use, will appreciate you for, that is a quality item that doesn't cost too much, is not an easy thing.
As a guitar player of 40 years, I've gotten my share of lousy guitar player gifts. Hey, you can't blame the people who love you, especially if they don't play guitar or they're not a musician. Their heart was in the right place but they just had no idea of what you wanted, I mean really, really, wanted, that you would be excited to receive and would use and treasure for a long time and remember who actually brought them that special joy!
I'm going to help you solve this whole guitar player gift problem:
That's why I decided to dedicate my curation talents, likes and dislikes and give this some serious thought for you, whether you are buying gifts for guitar players or you are a guitarist or musician interested in what's out there currently that's cool.
My promise to you:
Here's my bottom line: If I don't think it's cool, wouldn't want it or don't already have it...it won't get featured or recommended. What that means is that I will not be listing just any old piece of guitar gear or merchandise, book, etc. that may or may not be of interest to the guitar player in your life or you, if you're a guitarist. It means that I've scoured the online marketplace for you and using my 40 years of guitar playing experience and love for all cool and useful things guitar, I've narrowed it down for you, with clickable links...no less.
I look for good online deals and the coolest stuff out there in a variety of prices ranges which I feel are a good deal as well as worthy as guitar gifts or music gifts. Please also note that I will be writing detailed blog worthy reviews and descriptions and not just posting stuff with no explanation of it and why I think it worth owning. There will be photo images, videos, and my personal summary and review of why I think it worth your money as a cool guitar gift.
Disclosure: I do receive small affiliate commissions on some (not all) items that I will recommend but as I have already stated, I will not recommend something that I personally would not want or don't already own.

ITEM # 1 ON THE GIFTS FOR GUITAR PLAYERS GUIDE
This is the first recommendation on our guide. As far as gifts for guitar players go, we think this is one of the coolest and affordable must haves for any electric guitarist. A guitar cable with a built in digital recorder for under $100? Are you kidding? Click the image or title above to check out our detailed review of this bad boy piece of guitar gear.
ITEM #2 ON THE GIFTS FOR GUITAR PLAYERS GUIDE
Every guitar player needs a quality guitar stand whether for home use or stage use. This is my favorite guitar stand after years of using a variety of different guitar stands. Click the image or title to learn why it's my favorite and the guitar stand I personally own and use. A great gift and a must have for any guitarist.
Every guitarist loves a good guitar book and this is certainly one of them. The author had unprecedented access to the Fender files and people who were there when these revolutionary guitars and amps were created. For anyone, like me, who is truly into all things Fender guitar, this book is a treasure trove of information from the original sources and some great photos too.
I've also provided a link on this item to some other "must have" books from the guitar player. Some of them delve deeply into "guitar archaeology" like this book and others are just great pictorial pleasures.
Hard to go wrong with some great guitar books for the guitar player's library and I think that these types of gifts give countless hours of pleasure to any guitarist...plus, if they're a history buff like me, they will be fascinated by this book and some others I have recommended on this page.
