About

First off, read how I review guitars HERE: https://guitarsforidiots.com/2019/07/16/a-guitar-review-primer-how-scoring-works/

My name is Matt Dunn and since January 2019 I’ve been pursuing a career in music and guitar journalism. Starting with my first job at Ultimate-Guitar.com, where I still publish featured articles every Monday, I quickly expanded, and started publishing for Stringjoy.com and Guitarniche.com regularly too. Now, I’ve started this website to continue to publish reviews, articles, and opinions without having to worry about editors, deadlines, or content restrictions.

I pride myself on only publishing “hands on” reviews, that means that any guitar, bass, amp, or pedal that I talk about here is one that I have played, in my hands, in my house. While there are plenty of other great sites out there publishing well researched reviews, you can trust Guitars For Idiots to tell you the truth about real experiences!

Definitely take a look at all my articles for Stringjoy.com’s blog and try out some of their world renowned strings, made here in the USA in Nashville.

For gear, lesson reviews, and opinions, head to Guitarniche.com to read great work from me and the site’s founder Steve Blundon.

Recently, I’ve also added theguitarjunky.com to the list of websites I publish under as well! My first article can be found up now by clicking here.

As I’ve completed more and more kits and partscasters, I’m now moving into building my own instruments from scratch. Feel free to reach out for custom partscaster or kit guitar orders done affordably and professionally. Also, check out my reverb shop to see what guitars, spare parts, or gear I’m selling!
