Video and Photos: Behind the Scenes at Guitar World's 2013 Review Guide Photo Shoot

Here's a behind-the-scenes photo gallery — and video — from our 2013 Review Guide, which is available now at the Guitar World Online Store.

"This year, we finally made it happen," said Paul Riario, editor-in-chief of the 2013 Review Guide. "With a truck full of the latest gear and some beautiful ladies by our side, we headed west to Malibu, California, for sand, sun and fun. The results can be seen throughout the new 2013 Guitar World Holiday Review Guide."

The photos feature Playboy Playmates Jessa Hinton, Amanda Cerny and Shelby Chesnes, plus Riaro, Guitar World photo editor Jimmy Hubbard and LA photographer Travis Shinn, who shot the photos in the Review Guide.

As always, the Review Guide includes reviews of the best guitars, amps, effects and accessories selected from the pages of Guitar World and Guitar Aficionado. So check out the video and photos below — and pick up a copy of the Review Guide.

Be sure to check out this photo gallery of outtakes from the photo shoot!

Guitar World's 2013 Review Guide is available now at the Guitar World Online Store for $7.99.

Damian is Editor-in-Chief of Guitar World magazine. In past lives, he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor, and his non-Pulitzer-Prize-winning stories have appeared in Guitar Aficionado, Vintage Guitar, Total Guitar and countless other publications, including 13.7 metric tons of daily newspapers. He's written liner notes for major-label releases, including Stevie Ray Vaughan's 'The Complete Epic Recordings Collection' (Sony Legacy) and has interviewed everyone from Yngwie Malmsteen to Kevin Bacon (with a few memorable Eric Clapton and Ty Tabor chats thrown into the mix). Damian, a former member of Brooklyn's The Gas House Gorillas, was the sole guitarist in Mister Neutron, a trio that toured the U.S. and released three albums (one of which appears in the 2015 Disney film 'Tomorrowland' starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson). He's in two NYC-area bands and plays Teles with four-way switches, B-benders and semi-snazzy aftermarket pickups. He quotes Terry-Thomas twice daily.
