NAMM 2024: Alex Lifeson unveiled his LERXST amp range in collaboration with MojoTone last year and, at the time, he promised us big things were afoot – hinting at a full range of pedals and guitars to follow. 

What we did not expect was that they’d be with us within mere months, but lo and behold, here we are amid NAMM 2024, witnessing the introduction of Lifeson’s own LERXT Limelight S-style electric guitar.
