NITA STRAUSS Showcases Signature JIVA10 Guitar, Warm-Up Techniques In New Videos

The signature model of high-profile metal guitarist Nita Strauss, the Ibanez JIVA10 is sleek, aggressive, and built for speed. At the JIVA10's core is the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with quilted maple. A maple / purpleheart neck and smooth ebony fingerboard complete this axe's flawless tonewood recipe. You can expect effortless playability, thanks to a 3-piece Nitro Wizard neck and Prestige fret-edge treatment. And you'll pummel your amp into submission with a multitude of aggressive tones, by way of a versatile HSH configuration of DiMarzio pickups.

In this new episode of the Guitar World series Like A Hurricane, Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper) shows you some exercises that will get your chops in tip-top shape. 

Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss will release her new solo album, Controlled Chaos, on November 16th via Sumerian Records. Pre-order the album here, and check out a video for the single "Our Desperate Hour" below.

Says Nita: "Producing and doing the majority of the engineering on this record myself was a challenge for me in so many ways and I learned A LOT about myself in the process but I am beyond overjoyed with how it came out!"

In live news, two of the most revolutionary guitar virtuosos of our generation - renowned soloist Angel Vivaldi and Alice Cooper axemaiden Nita Strauss - are pleased to announce the 2018 edition of The Guitar Collective, a United States tour kicking off on November 19th in New Bedford, MA. The tour will visit several major cities, ending in Asbury Park, NJ on December 21st.

Angel Vivaldi and Nita Strauss will co-headline each date of the tour with support from special guest Jacky Vincent (ex-Falling In Reverse). The Guitar Collective 2018 will mark Nita Strauss's live solo debut.

VIP and general admission tickets are available now via VIP Meet and Greets with Angel Vivaldi and Nita Strauss will include a Q&A session, a signed tour poster, and an HD photo with Angel and Nita.

The main goal of The Guitar Collective tour, now in its second year, is to give fans of instrumental guitar music a chance to discover new artists, and for those artists to branch out to new fans. The Guitar Collective founder Angel Vivaldi sees the tour as a place where people can come year after year to discover new virtuosos in an exciting live setting, not just behind their computers and phones.

Angel Vivaldi says, "The past four years have given us some of today's most incredible guitarists. After last year's Guitar Collective, which included Scale the Summit and Andy James, I knew I had to make this "modern G3" an annual outing. This year, not only do we have Nita Strauss's live solo debut, we've also got Jacky Vincent, who both will continue to carry the torch of instrumental guitar music for generations to come. I can't wait to get on stage night after night to jam with my friends."

Nita Strauss adds, "These will be my first shows ever as a solo artist, and I couldn't have hoped for a better fitting tour. I've been a huge fan of Angel's since I first discovered his music and became an even bigger fan when I saw his incredible live performance. Angel and Jacky are two of the most innovative and exciting solo guitarists out there in the scene today, and I am beyond honored to share the stage with them on this tour!"
