Awesome Gifts for Guitarists Who Have Everything

What kind of gift do you get for the guitarist that seems to have everything? Well, let me tell you. Most who see my gear think I have a LOT of guitars, amps and guitar gadgets. So, what do you get for the guitarist who has everything?

The Top 10 Guitar Gifts for Guitarists Who Have Everything


1. Electro-harmonix Holy Grail NEO Reverb

Check best price
This pedal is just amazing. I can’t say enough about it except it’s first on my list! I’ve been borrowing one from a friend and it produces some of the best reverb I have ever heard. The price is not bad either. Why would guitarists want this? Because if they have everything then they definitely have a few amps sitting around without any reverb. This is the perfect compliment to those.

  • 3 Reverb Types – Spring, Hall, Plate
  • True bypass switching
  • Compact design


2. Pedaltrain metro20 Pedalboard

Check best price
This pedal board is great for any guitarist that has more than 4 pedals. I have 2 pedalboards and this is on my wishlist. It’s perfect for gigs where you don’t need the full board. As an added bonus it comes with a fitted soft case. This is a nice size that allows you add a power supply and easily transport it without breaking your back. The dimensions are 21.8 x 4.2 x 10.2 inches. Not a large footprint but it holds a lot of pedals.

  • Includes soft shell fitted case
  • Lightweight but built well
  • Very portable



3. Mini Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Wah Pedal

Check best price
These pedals are just downright cute. Cute?!?! Not a very manly way to put it but they are. This mini wah is perfect for a small pedalboard. These are just plain cool. You get the full wah effect without all the weight and without taking up so much space on your pedalboard.

  • Half the size of the original Cry Baby Wah
  • Three internal voicings
  • Full sweep range – important for a mini wah



3. Right-Angle Guitar Patch Cables

Check best price
You can never have enough patch cables. I especially like these with the right-angled jacks. They don’t take up a lot of space and the price is right. It’s worth having extra on hand so you aren’t left stranded at a show. They come in various sizes and if you’re interested in buying them for me I’ll take a pack in each size. Believe me, every guitarist will tell you the same thing.

  • OFC conductor for enhanced signal clarity
  • OFC spiral shield for effective EMI and RFI rejection and flexibility
  • Available in 6 inch, 12 inch and 3 feet sizes



4. Belkin 8-Outlet Surge Protector

Check best price
I’ll admit this is a boring gift but it’s one that most guitarists overlook. Protecting your gear is important and most guitarists won’t spend their cash on this. They’ll buy guitar strings or a new pedal instead. The truth is, they need it. Every home that has a guitar amp should have one.

  • 8-foot power cord
  • USB charging
  • Surge protection indicator secure/protected indicator




5. A Box of His Favorite Strings

Check best price
A box of strings will never go bad. I go through a box (10 packs) every 2 months. I play and perform a lot. I also have a lot of guitars. It seems like the strings all need replaced on my guitars at the same time. I really appreciate it when I have several packs on hand.

  • Cheaper when you buy in bulk
  • Cheaper when you buy online





6. Ernie Ball Musician’s Tool Kit

Check best price
I have plenty of tools but not a handy all-in-one kit that I can take with me. Having all of the tools you need in one place is super helpful. Plus, like I said, it’s handy. I’m not sure that the cleaning wipes are all that necessary for the kit but I like this kit anyways. Simple.

  • Includes everything for string changes and guitar set-ups
  • Nice small carrying case


7. A Handcrafted Solid African Okoume Wood Floor Guitar Stand

Check best price
This guitar stand is definitely unique. Hang your best axe on it and you’ll be the envy of your neighborhood. Maybe not but it will make your guitar look awesome. Only guitarists with everything own this… I’m pretty sure.

  • Individually handcrafted in Texas Hill Country using premium stock
  • Stable and strong – USA Made String Swing cradle





8. IK Multimedia iRig 2 guitar interface adaptor for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Mac and Android

Check best price
Everyone has a phone or iPad. With the iRig 2 you can turn your device into a nice practice amp. Since the processing is on the device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android) the sound quality is excellent. This device comes with AmpliTube FREE which is the free version of Amplitube. Amplitube has a lot of options for amps, cabinets and effects.

  • Best selling product
  • Use 1/4″ instrument cable
  • Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Mac and Android




9. A BYO Electric Guitar Kit

Check best price and see options
I recently built my own guitar from a kit and it turned out awesome. I think every guitarist should build their own guitar. They will really appreciate their local luthier if they do. Plus, they will learn a lot about their instrument. My kit was a BYO brand and it was great quality.  You can see it here.

  • Variety of kits to choose from (tele, kramer, strat, jackson)
  • Finished or you finish
  • All hardware included




10. Orange Crush 35RT Combo Guitar Amp

Check best price and see options
I already own one of these. These amps sound fantastic. The Orange Crush has a built-in tuner and reverb. I have used this amp for gigs and it really sounds amazing. At 35 watts it gets plenty loud as well. It’s not tube but your ears may deceive you because it sounds so good.

  • Two channels
  • Reverb and Built-in Tuner
  • Fully Buffered Effects loop
  • Custom 10-inch Voice of the World Speaker
