YouTube channel Reverb.com
Rick Has A Guitar For Everyone!
Rick Nielsen has always been known for his extravagant guitars. Throughout his career, he has had hundreds of custom guitars made by Hammer Guirtars, including one that is shaped exactly like him! But what a lot of people don’t know, is that Rick is an avid collector of rare, vintage and exotic guitars! He has stated in interviews that he loves guitars that have wear and tear on them, and has even opened a museum in his hometown of Rockford, Illinois to display some of his most treasured vintage and custom axes.
In this video, Rick takes us on a tour of his “gear dungeon,” which is basically the guitar equivalent to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! Nielsen shows us all of these incredible rare, exotic and vintage guitars he has hoarded over the years, and explains the history behind them. One of the guitars he displays to us, was signed by B.B. King not once, not twice, but THREE separate times! Nielsen’s collection contains everything from telecasters, stratocasters and Les Pauls.
Check out Nielsen’s amazing collection down below, and let us know which one is your favorite! Also check out his website, where you can buy one of these amazing guitars for yourself!
