Annie Clark is officially one step ahead of us. We’ve always suspected as much, but this fact was confirmed the moment she emerged from hair and makeup for her inaugural Guitar World cover shoot holding a guitar… and wearing a dress that featured a print of a bikini body, just like the kind you’d find hanging in the window of a kitschy beach shop.
Jabba Custom is an exclusive classic instrument with the modern touch.
I’ve played one but really want to. I bet it will sound beautiful through my Edens rig.
