Premier Guitar December 2012: This issue recaps the 41 guitar and bass products that blew our minds so much in 2012 that they received our Premier Gear award.

Our feature section also includes a behind-the-scenes look at the 13 guitarists and bassists from all the major late-night talk shows, a profile of archtop builder John Monteleone, and a Studio Legends piece on multi-platinum producer Keith Olsen. Our reviews this month include the new Martin Retro Series OM-28, the Fulltone Seq Freq, the Egnater Armageddon, the Markbass Big Bang, the G&L Tribute Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow, the Voodoo Lab Giggity, the Andrews ParaDyne combo, the Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone, and the Normandy Alumicaster bass.
