Electronic Guitar Bag Lets You Strum Your Pain Wherever You Go
I think music is a great outlet to release pent-up emotions, be it the good kind or the bad kind. It doesn’t really matter if you’re not very musically inclined or can’t carry a tune; I mean, it’s got to be better than throwing a tantrum or breaking stuff, right?

The local police in Luleå, a little town in Northern Sweden, raided the home of a man and found number of illegal weapons after receiving an anonymous tip.

Rocksmith Guitar Game: A Levelled Up Guitar Hero?

Rocksmith Guitar Game: A Levelled Up Guitar Hero?

Zoybar TOR 3D Printed Guitar Looks Cool and Doesn’t Sound Half Bad Either
If you ask me, the uses for 3D printing technology keep getting more and more impressive. Take, for example, this guitar that had its body parts manufactured using a 3D printer.
