The Premier Gear Award is an honor bestowed upon a piece of gear—whether guitar, amp, effect, or other gear— that has been extraordinary enough to impress the staff of Premier Guitar. Despite the high quality of all gear reviewed by Premier Guitar, only exemplary items earn the award.
“Style, tone, playability and even a nice case,” says Premier Guitar reviewer Pat Smith. “What more do you want? So considering the price, the custom features, quality, and just that it is a kick ass guitar, I would recommend it for sure.” Premier Guitar awarded the Zaffiro XJ a rating of 5.0, the highest possible rating.

“Our goal was simply to service a niche market of players who were looking for a tone that couldn't be found hanging on the wall,” said Jack Camarda, managing partner of Jarrett Guitars LLC. “Building them one at a time allowed us to offer our clients the latest technology and state of the art improvements in hardware, pickups and electronics, all at a price that made sense to working musicians. Winning a PG Gear Award is a wonderful acknowledgment of those humble efforts.”
“Here’s how it works,” says Premier Guitar’s editorial director Joe Coffey. “We designate a few Premier Gear Awards to amazing gear throughout the year—you’ll find these awards attached to worthy products that are reviewed in our magazine and on PremierGuitar.com. The idea is to let our gearhead readers know about these products immediately, because we simply need to tell the world when a guitar, amp or pedal blows our minds. Exceptional gear deserves to celebrated and it is truly our pleasure to organize and throw the party!”
