Behind the Scenes at Guitar World's 2015 Review Guide Photo Shoot —Video

Here's a behind-the-scenes video from our fun 2015 Guitar World Review Guide photo shoot!

The hot new Review Guide is available now at the Guitar World Online Store.

"Every year since we began putting together the Review Guide, we’ve kept mental notes on some of the most popular Playmates who nail it every time they handle the incredible amount of gear we throw at them," says Paul Riario, the Review Guide's editor-in-chief. "For this issue, we thought it would be a novel idea to bring back some of our favorites.

"Now, if I had a choice, I’d have assembled a small army of these lovely ladies, but alas, necessity required that we narrow our choices down to a few.

"After poring through countless pictures, we picked Raquel Pomplun, Playboy’s Playmate of the Year 2013, Pamela Horton, Playboy’s Miss October 2012, and Jaclyn Swedberg, Playboy’s Playmate of the Year 2012, as the attractive all-stars who would come out to play for our 2015 Guitar World Review Guide.

"It probably goes without saying, but this was one very happy reunion. As you’ll see in the guide (and in the behind-the-scenes video below), the girls dressed in shredded concert tees and taught us a thing or two on how to rock out with some of the newest guitars, coolest basses, one-of-a-kind acoustics, trippy effects, loud amps and so much more.

"As always, the Review Guide includes plenty of sneak previews of upcoming gear, along with concise reviews of the best guitars, amps, effects, recording hardware and software and accessories, all of it selected from the pages of Guitar World. With all this information at your fingertips, you’ll find it easier than ever to make the right choice about your next gear purchase.

"In addition, we also feature our biannual Model Search Contest with our three winners— Nikki Stringfield, Tatyana Kalinicheva and Yvi Wylde—who are not only beautiful ladies but accomplished guitarists as well."
