Guitar Gods Playing Cards: Show Your Support for Our Kickstarter Campaign!

The staff of Guitar World is excited to launch its first ever Kickstarter campaign—and we need your support to help make it a reality! The project is a deck of standard-sized playing cards featuring 54 of our favorite covers that span our entire 34-year existence as a magazine.

Dimebag Darrell, the Beatles, Jerry Cantrell, Judas Priest, Les Paul, Alex Lifeson, Slipknot, John Petrucci, Kirk Hammett, Eddie Van Halen, Slayer, Yngwie Malmsteen, Frank Zappa, Zakk Wylde and many others will be featured!

The first 100 decks are being offered for $10 each, with free shipping! But you have to act now and pledge your support: after the first 100 are gone, decks are $12 each.

Click here to order your own set of Guitar Gods Playing Cards—shipping inside the U.S. is free, and international shipments are available! If the project gets funded, we expect the cards to ship by February 2015.

Jeff Kitts

As a teenager, Jeff Kitts began his career in the mid ’80s as editor of an underground heavy metal fanzine in the bedroom of his parents’ house. From there he went on to write for countless rock and metal magazines around the world – including Circus, Hit Parader, Metal Maniacs, Rock Power and others – and in 1992 began working as an assistant editor at Guitar World. During his 27 years at Guitar World, Jeff served in multiple editorial capacities, including managing editor and executive editor before finally departing as editorial director in 2018. Jeff has authored several books and continues to write for Guitar World and other publications and teaches English full time in New Jersey. His first (and still favorite) guitar was a black Ibanez RG550.
