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.
