You can see some great electric guitars in Southern California this weekend and think about the roots of that breed of musical instrument and the cool cats who played them. Great guitars and guitarist are rockin’ the globe this week from sea to rollin’ sea.
The 1954 Goldtop electric guitar that is considered to be the one played by Carl Perkins on the classic record Blue Suede Shoes was sold at auction in the United Kingdom a few days ago. The recording of this song created one of the very first and most-influential Rock’n’Roll 45-RPM records ever!
The AXE HEAVEN® miniature replica of the 1956 version of this iconic musical instrument has been available for several years. Like all of our miniature collectible replica guitars, this classic model is hand-crafted and features details that are so realistic you will want to plug in and start jamming like the thousands of rockers who have been inspired by the sounds of classic guitars.
