The 5 Best (Musician Approved!) Gifts for Guitar Player

With the holiday season approaching quicker than most of us would like, I asked my husband what he would like for Christmas. 

We got together and came up with a list of the top 5 things he thought would make for great holiday or birthday gifts for the guitar or bassist in your life. 

Guitar Care/ Luthier Tools

You can buy smaller kits you could easily slip in a gig bag to fix small issues at a show or enough tools to fill a workbench and start a small side hustle setting up and repainting instruments for people. 

Tab & Music Books

When it comes to learning songs, some people have no problem scrolling through Guitar Pro, where some need a physical copy to look at it at their own pace. 

Guitar/Bass Amp Sims

Amp simulators all have different interfaces and features. Some have full-featured pedalboards, and some are free with additional models for purchase, while some can profile current tube amps you own and create presets. 

Guitar Kits

Build your own guitar and bass kits are everywhere now! You can purchase kits for a ton of famous guitar models, and all you have to do is assemble and finish them.
