Christmas Gifts, Presents and Stocking Fillers for Guitarists

Christmas Gifts, Presents and Stocking Fillers for Guitarists

If you’re anything like me, you’re pretending to friends and family that you haven’t even started to think about Christmas, but secretly, you’ve been pondering over the thought of Santa ramming a spanking new Honeyburst Les Paul Standard down the chimney.

Seeing that it’s only 6 weeks until Christmas, it’s seems only right to start a guitar-based Christmas list. My only hope is that my friends and family read this list (especially with regards to numbers 1, 8 & 10 ;-))!

In no particular order, 10 stocking fillers that most, if not all guitarists would like to receive:

Timber Tones Exotic Picks1. Timber Tones Exotic Wood Picks
£2.99 approx

These plectrums look really interesting. Would love to know how they contribute to the overall guitar sound.

Purchase from Strings Direct


Orange Crush Micro Guitar Amp2. Orange Crush Micro Guitar Amp
£26.00 approx

This classic mini Orange amp is always a winner. Crank some portable Orange sounds at ear-friendly volumes and annoy your granny during the Queen’s speech with a Brian May style solo of the national anthem. Make sure you purchase a set of 9V batteries as a backup though.

Purchase from Absolute Music Solutions


Chickenbone John Glass Bottleneck Slide3. Chickenbone John Glass Bottleneck Slide
£6.95 approx

Authentically made from the necks of wine bottles. I picked one of these up at the Bristol Guitar Show and it’s great. Chickenbone John is a Cigar Box legend! Wine not included.

Purchase from Chickenbone John


Fender Coffee Mug4. Fender Coffee Mug
£12.49 approx

Enjoy a cuppa from your favourite mug. Promises not to go out of tune after heavy whammy abuse.

Purchase from Absolute Music Solutions


Elixir5. Elixir Nanoweb Anti-Rust Guitar Strings
£9.95 approx

You can’t go wrong in stacking a guitarists’ stocking full of guitar strings. Make sure you get the right gauge though, and whether they need electric or acoustic strings! Elixir Strings are great quality too.

Purchase from Strings Direct


SHUBB C1 Capo6. SHUBB C1 Capo
£17.50 approx

Arguably the finest guitar capo around, used by 1000’s of guitarists.

Purchase from Absolute Music Solutions


IK Multimedia AmpliTube iRig Guitar Interface For iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad7. IK Multimedia AmpliTube iRig Guitar Interface For iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad
£29.99 approx

Turn your iPhone into a guitar amp modelling jamming machine! Does not work with an iRon (sorry… I’ve been dying to squeeze that joke into a post for ages!).

Purchase from Absolute Music Solutions


Fender8. Fender & Gibson Haynes Manuals
£19.99 approx

This would put the guitarist in your household a step closer in maintaining their favourite Gibson or Fender. It could potentially save them lots of cash long-term in guitar setup fees… if they have the right tools and patience!

Purchase from Amazon.co.uk


Fender Meguiars Instrument Care Kit9. Fender Meguiars Instrument Care Kit
£19.99 approx

Every guitarists should have some decent guitar polish. You can’t go wrong with Meguiars reputation (although traditionally known for car polish!).

Purchase from Strings Direct


Duesenberg CC Fullerton in Vintage White10. New Duesenberg CC Fullerton in Vintage White
£1549.99 approx

OK, so this isn’t a stocking filler as such (unless you’re truly minted), but this caught my eye recently, I love it and I couldn’t resist adding it to this list. If you’re feeling totally wedged up this year, I couldn’t think of anything better than surprising your family guitarist with one of these! It will sound and play amazingly and is sure to be a “guitar for life”.

Purchase from Oasis Music
