Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World said in this interview he is working on an artist-designed Fender guitar that should go into production in early 2008.
From the InterviewI was just actually working with Fender on an artist-designed series model that I think will actually get to go to production in January or February. It’s kind of a cross between a Tele and a Les Paul. It has P-90s and a separate volume tone for each pickup.

According to YouInSeries' myspace blog, the band has lost their guitar player and drummer. The following was taken from their blog:
BlogI guess there is no easy way to come out with this, so I'm taking the straight foward route in sharing the latest YouInSeries news with you. Logan Lanning and Cheyne Smith will no longer be playing with the band due to creative conflicts and they will be pursuing new artistic endeavors together. They will be missed and we support their decisions as we commonly agree that this is what needs to happen in order for YouInSeries to move foward. That being said, the remaining members (Kyle, Jacob, and Chris) are in the process of trying out new faces...

Fat Mike of NOFX and owner of Fat Wreck Chords is auctioning off his first guitar in order to raise money for Unite the United which will benefit Habitat for Humanity and United Way for the New Orleans area. In the press release Fat Mike had this to say: "It was my first guitar. I bought it from Lynn Strait, (singer from the band Snot), for $50 who actually stole it in the first place, so I bought a stolen guitar... I wrote all of Liberal Animation on it. It never toured since I don't play guitar on tour".
