Video and Photo Gallery: Behind the Scenes at the 2012 Guitar World Buyer’s Guide

When my good friends at Playboy called to say Crystal Harris and Anna Sophia Berglund were available to appear in this year’s Buyer’s Guide, I heard them loud and clear.

After all, the voluptuous Anna was Playboy’s Miss January 2011, while smoking-hot Crystal was Miss December 2009 and — at the time that we set out to create this guide — the bride-to-be of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

Unfortunately, as we went to press, the only thing that remained crystal clear was the fact that the marriage was indeed off. Once it was confirmed, we were able to quickly change our cover lines, but Playboy didn’t have that opportunity because she appears on their cover as “Mrs. Crystal Hefner.”

Whoops. Call it a collector’s issue.

What is more astonishing is that shortly after the breakup, Crystal’s best friend and maid of honor for their wedding, Anna Sophia Berglund, had moved in with Hefner. What are BFFs for, anyway?

All joking aside, Crystal and Anna were a whole lot of fun to work with and prove that Hefner’s girls are magnetic ambassadors of the Playboy brand.

For better or for worse, things change, but what remains intact is the 2012 Guitar World Buyer’s Guide delivers the very best in girls and guitar gear.

The 2012 Buyer's Guide his newsstands soon. You can learn more about -- and order -- the 2012 Buyer's Guide here. And be sure to check out Guitar World's Crystal Harris and Anna Sophia Berglund video and photo gallery below.
