How we test

Total Guitar - - RYAN ADAMS / COME PICK ME UP -


Our prod­uct se­lec­tion is driven by our love of gear. We se­lect the most ex­cit­ing prod­ucts on the mar­ket ev­ery month to bring you opin­ions you can trust.

Face-value re­views

We’re not gear snobs here at To­tal Gui­tar. We judge it on whether it looks good, sounds good and plays well – not by the name on the head­stock.

No snake oil

You won’t find us get­ting hung up on hokey mythol­ogy or non­sense mar­ket­ing speak: we aim to bring you bull­shit-free opin­ions on the gear you’re in­ter­ested in.

We ca n’t be bought

TG re­view scores are a true re­flec­tion of our ex­perts’ opin­ion on the prod­uct they’ve been test­ing. You’ll never find a rat­ing in our mag that has been bought and paid for.

Real world re­views

We test ev­ery prod­uct un­der the con­di­tions that they were de­signed for. For ex­am­ple, if an amp is de­signed to be played loud, rest as­sured that we’ll have tested it at re­hearsal/gig vol­umes!

Best buy award

Tg best buy awards are re­served for stand-out prod­ucts that earn a five-star rat­ing. This is the best, most ex­cit­ing new gear that you

need to check out
