zZounds Buying Guide: Artist Signature Guitars, Basses, Amps, and Effects!

When your favorite gear brands and artists collaborate, amazing results are sure to happen. Generally spec'd down to the smallest detail by the artists, signature gear retains the proven quality of the manufacturer -- along with some really cool custom features that not only fit an artist's needs, but also reflect his or her personality. Pick up a signature series piece of gear today to completely nail a specific tone, or take it a step further and make it an essential part of your own signature sound.
Artist Signature Electric Guitars
Give your inspiration a boost with an artist signature electric guitar. Typically crafted with heavy input from the artist in mind, these instruments feature modifications that can range from subtle to over-the-top -- just take a look at the Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, complete with a lefty neck and reverse angle bridge pickup. While modifications on established designs are plentiful, sometimes an artist has the opportunity to collaborate on an entirely new concept, as St. Vincent has done with her stunning Music Man signature guitar.

Artist Signature Basses
While guitarists tend to get the lion's share of the glory, bassists know that their heroes deserve to get recognized as well. Perform incredible fingerboard gymnastics just like Geddy Lee on his signature Fender Jazz Bass, or pound away with some grimy, rock and roll fury on the Duff McKagan Precision Bass. Pick up a signature series bass to motivate your playing with the mojo of your favorite player.

Artist Signature Amplifiers
As one of the most significant components of your rig, your amp must deliver consistent sound and performance every night. Of course, professionals know the importance of this more than most, with some having put their experience to use by collaborating with top amp manufacturers for their signature models. Pick up the Orange Jim Root Terror stack to crank out incredibly heavy tones from a lunchbox-sized amp. Forget about doing your own amp modding to sound like the pros and just pick up one of these signature amps with all the fun stuff included!

Artist Signature Effects
The easiest (and most cost-effective!) way to emulate the tone of your favorite artist is by simply picking up an effects pedal. Effects can give your tone that certain special something that makes it all your own, and the pros have embraced this just like anyone else. Plug into the Jerry Cantrell Cry Baby to dial in those dark wah tones he's made famous on a number of records, or pick up an MXR Van Halen phaser for rich, thick movement through your tapping solos.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
