This week on Guitar Gear Gems we take a look at the some gear coming out for NAMM 2024. This includes the Schecter Machine Gun Kelly Razor Blade signature model, which is already dividing opinion online. Then we check out the new Martin GPCE Inception Maple acoustic guitar with its unique skeletal bracing. Finally, we check out the latest Ibanez Tube Screamer 45th Anniversary Edition release.


Machine Gun Kelly Razor Blade

This new Schecter Machine Gun Kelly Razor Blade signature model has a rectangular-shaped body. Think Bo Diddley, but not as cool and possibly a little ’80s metal in looks, because of the razor blade aesthetic. It is finished in a silver metallic paint job that mimics a real razor blade.

Construction consists of a basswood body paired with a bolt-on three-piece maple neck that is reinforced with carbon fiber rods and has an ebony fretboard.

The Best a Man Can Get?

It comes loaded with a single Schecter USA Pasadena Plus bridge pickup and a Master Volume, plus a Killswitch. The guitar comes with a Slim C profile neck with a XX inlay at the 12th fret, a set of glow-in-the-dark Luminlay side dots, and a set of 22 Xtra Jumbo frets. Therefore, it is aimed at rocking out and could be a great ‘stage guitar’ for anyone who is in an ’80s metal tribute band or similar.

MSRP – USD 1499

Martin GPCE Inception Maple

This new Martin GPCE Inception Maple model comes in an Amber Fade Sunburst finish. On the outside, it looks like a regular single cutaway acoustic guitar, but the skeletonized bracing inside the guitar is an all-new design.

More Information


It is made from sustainably sourced North American woods, including FSC-certified European spruce and maple. Martin’s spectral analysis tests also confirm that this new bracing design significantly enhances both sustain and amplitude.


LR Baggs

This model comes fitted with LR Baggs Anthem electronics. and is priced at $3,999, which makes it pretty expensive for such an odd acoustic guitar. Traditional acoustic fans may find this a strange guitar to opt for, as it is very different in terms of construction when compared to classic Martin acoustics.

Ibanez Tube Screamer 45th Anniversary Edition

This Ibanez Tube Screamer 45th Anniversary Edition comes in a unique Sapphire Blue finish and celebrates the iconic overdrive pedal’s latest anniversary. It has the standard Overdrive, Tone, and Level controls, plus the big square on/off button in the middle of the pedal.

Magic Chip?

This limited-edition pedal isn’t just about being blue, as it also uses the original JRC4558D chip and analog circuitry. hough, I will say there isn’t much different about this limited run when compared to a standard Tube Screamer, but if you like blue then you are in luck this year.

Possibly one for pedal collectors and limited run gear flippers.
