Five Last Minute Gift Idea’s for Guitar Players that Won’t Break the Bank!

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, Robin Laid an Egg…. The Batmobile Lost a Wheel And the Joker got away…. HEY! Yes, it’s the holiday season people, such a great time to ROCK the night away. If you’re having a tough time deciding on the right purchase, or just procrastinating on what to get for your favorite guitar player, here are five ‘guitar player inspired’ gift idea’s that they just might like!

1. Accessories to display guitars – A guitar stand is just one of several options for displaying that axe! For you it might be a Goldtop Gibson Les Paul Standard or a Vintage Sunburst Fender Stratocaster might be your cup of tea. Maybe you’d prefer an acoustic guitar like a Martin D35 or a 1962 Gibson Hummingbird. Some players get weak by the Fireglo Rickenbacker 330 12-string or the Gretch Country Gentleman. The list goes on and on. The point is, guitars are works of art that should be played and displayed! Hercules Guitar Stand Price: $23.75


2. PRS Guitarbud Cable – The Guitarbud is a simple Y-cable that plugs into the headphone/mic jack of your iPhone at one end and splits into two connectors at the other end. One is a standard 1/4″ instrument plug that goes to your guitar and the other is a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. The length of the Guitarbud cable is just shy of seven feet. This is great as it allows enough cable to put your iPhone on a table or chair in front of you while you sit back and play. The connectors are set into hard molded plastic with flex joints. Guitarbud Audio Interface Price: $31.89


3. IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube iRig – Wow – what a cool offering from IK Multimedia! The AmpliTube iRig comes in two parts: the hardware (AmpliTube iRig) which allows you to connect your guitar to your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad and the software app (AmpliTube). With AmpliTube iRig, you can plug your guitar into your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad and jam anywhere with world class guitar and bass tone right in the palm of your hand – from the leader in studio-class guitar and bass software. AmpliTube iRig Price: $39.99


4. Flipper Guitar Spatula – According to the maker, you can serve up some pure Rock n’ Roll deliciousness with the Flipper guitar spatula. Perfect for eggs, pancakes, or the Elvis special — fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. The Flipper is 50% rock, 50% roll and 100% Silicone. It’s dishwasher safe and tested up to 500º. Crank up the heat, crank up the jams, and get cookin’! Guitar Spatula Price: $10.95


5. Sanyo Pedal Juice – Pedal Juice is a product from the makers at Sanyo and directly marketed for guitar players. The beauty behind Pedal Juice is that it is a rechargeable 9V Lithium-Ion battery that replaces the need for equipping each of your various guitar effects pedals with its own 9-volt battery or AC power adapter. As you may know, it’s a major drag when your pedal suddenly stops working during rehearsal or at a gig because your battery died and worse yet, you have no replacement 9-volt batteries on hand. Well fret not, Pedal Juice is here at your disposal! Sanyo Pedal Juice Price: $149.99
