In addition to touring with national headlining acts, he has released two impressive solo albums, A Disconcerting Amalgam and Caught Between the Truth and A Lie, showcasing his fiery hybrid of rock and country guitar playing and his mandolin-based bluegrass roots.

Guitar Ramble Interviews Andy at NAMM 2018
While at NAMM this year, we had a chance to speak with Andy about the new whiskey barrel finish available soon on his signature Suhr guitar. Released in 2017, the Andy Wood Signature guitar is currently available in two finishes based on iconic Ironman characters: black with silver pickguard (War Machine) and red with gold pickguard (Ironman). These tele style guitars feature a mix of classic styling with modern appointments such as 24 frets, locking tuners, and a sculpted, all-access heel joint. Two pickup and bridge options are available. The black and silver version comes with two Thornbucker humbucker pickups and a Gotoh tremolo while the red and gold version has a more classic set up with two Woodshed single coil pickups and a three-saddle vintage style bridge. The upcoming whiskey barrel finished version features the same pickups and bridge combination as the red and gold version. All of these guitars feature a unique torched swamp ash body and roasted maple neck with jumbo stainless steel frets. Check out the YouTube video below to hear Andy describe and demo this guitar.
