Top 5 Gifts for Guitar Players Under $50 in 2023

Looking to spend $50 bucks or less on the perfect guitar player gift?  Then read on!  We've got some amazing gifts for under $50.


If your guitar player has a Gibson, Taylor, Guild, PRS, Gretsch, or Epiphone guitar then they have a truss rod cover on their headstock. Surprisingly, most truss rod covers even on super expensive guitars are made of plastic.  We make our truss rod covers out of exotic wood and carefully inlay each one with beautiful shell to make mini masterpieces. 

This is absolutely the best way to "pimp" your guitar without breaking the bank.  For $20 you can give a gift that will stay on your guitar player's guitar forever and bring a smile to their face whenever they look at the beautiful craftsmanship and think of you!

What you need to know if you want to give a truss rod cover:

The first thing is whether their guitar has one.  While most guitars do have them there are some notable exceptions. For example, Fender and Martin guitars do not have truss rod covers.  But if they have a Taylor, Gibson, Epiphone, Gretch, PRS, Guild and many other brands then they do.  We have a template guide that you can find here that will help you determine the one needed. Simply print out the template and match the shape to the one found on their guitar.

What guitar players are saying about our truss rod covers:

"First off, I just wanted to say that the good people at Thalia are a class act!! I can’t say enough about them and their service!! I ordered two truss rod covers for my Taylor guitars and was blown away when I received them. They are gorgeous!! They fit perfectly and in my opinion they enhance the look of my guitars. I ordered one solid wood in black ebony and one abalone on black ebony. Coupled with my matching Thalia abalone capo, its jaw dropping! I've since picked up a new Taylor GS Mini Koa and am awaiting the arrival of my 3rd truss rod cover. See for yourself, you will be blown away!!!!"


If your guitar player uses picks then our exotic wood picks will shock and awe.  We make our picks out of exotic wood and have a patented pick technology that allows us to create the world's thinnest wood pick.  Why would you want a pick made of wood?  Well, it simply sounds better than a plastic pick.

What you need to know if you want to give picks:

First, not all guitar players use flat picks.  The vast majority do, but fingerstyle players do not.  An easy way to determine this is to look near their guitar or in the case to see what they are currently using.  Pay attention to the thickness of the pick which will be indicated in mm and the shape.  Most guitar players use standard shaped picks.  If you are not sure what they use, your best bet is to give them a sampler.  We have two types of samplers:  Shape Samplers and Exotic Wood Samplers.  Our Sampler has 4 different pick shapes and 2 different thicknesses.  Most guitar players will love to experiment with the various shapes and so this is a great choice.  If you know that they play with a standard shaped pick, then we would recommend trying one of our exotic wood samplers.  The sample packs come with 4 different species of wood picks in 2 different thicknesses.  Because wood has different hardness levels, each of the different species will sound different to the recipient.  So these are a great way to go if you have a player who uses standard shaped picks.

What guitar players are saying about our picks:

"My first purchase from Thalia was a capo. It was gorgeous and blew away anything else I considered. The capo fit both my electric and acoustic guitar without any problems. The capo came with one of Thalia's wood picks. I loved the rich warm sound it produced and the overall feel compared to my plastic picks. I was so impressed that I ordered the Bubinga Tree of Life Pick Tin for myself, and a set of rosewood picks for both of my sons."




  Guitar Phone Case Header

Guitar players love their guitars and have a special affinity for the brands that make them.  At Thalia we took our expertise in doing guitar inlay work and expanded that into making designer mobile phone cases from the greatest brands in guitar.  Does your guitar player play a Gibson, Martin, Taylor or Guild Guitar?  Then give them the gift of their dreams that they will take with them everywhere they go. 

Our cases are made of military-grade polycarbonate and are inlaid with gorgeous exotic woods such as Hawaiian Koa, Indian Rosewood and all of the other woods used to make fine guitars.  Our pearl inlaid cases mimic the headstocks of their favorite guitars and are sure to make for an unbelievable gift.  Just find out what model phone they have and we are sure to have it.  We carry over 40 different models of phone cases.  

What guitar players are saying about our phone cases:  

"After using this case for a good bit after my purchase, this one definitely holds up for someone pretty rough on them. I wouldn’t want to take it out in the rain for fear of ruining the wood, which I’m sure is treated! It’s just a great overall case that looks amazing and fits the phone perfectly! Kudos to you guys for teaming up with Gibson on this. The inlay quality is amazing in person. The pictures do it some justice, but the product itself is flawless!"





Guitar players love exotic wood and shell more than the average person.  That is because these are the materials that are used to make their prized guitars.  Our expert craftsmen and inlay artists make some of the most beautiful rings you have ever seen.  Our rings are made of Tungsten Colbalt (the most scratch resistant metal on earth) and are beautifully inlaid with either blue abalone shell or our AAA Curly Hawaiian Koa wood.  They will treasure the ring and it will go with them every where they go.  We over a full range of sizes for both men and women.

Here are what guitar players are saying about our rings: 

"The basics, for Millennials:  Price: Local jewelry store quoted me $260.00 to make one!  Looks: 5/5 - Looks as good in person as it does on the website. The wood shimmers like Tiger Eye in the sunlight. Comfort: Perfect fit! True to size. Also, tungsten carbide specific heat is similar to that of gold (low), so the metal adapts to body temperature and doesn't feel cold on your hand.  Durability: After a month of wear at work and at home, the ring still looks like brand new.  Customer Service: "Thalia" should become the new word used to describe excellent customer service!

Narrative for Baby Boomers: I'm not much of a jewelry wearer, but when I saw this ring and realized how much it resembled one of my favorite guitars, I decided to grab it. Well, it does match my guitar beautifully, and it's comfortable and good looking in it's own right. It's also apparently very durable - I know that tungsten carbide is virtually indestructible, but I was concerned about the clear gloss over the wood. Have no fear - this ring is as tough as it is beautiful! I've been wearing it for about a month, and inevitably it's gotten knocked around a couple of times, and there is not a scratch on it. I'd like to find out what kind of finish they use on the wood and apply it to all of my furniture --- and my truck! My wife wants the 4mm version, so that and the matching capo will be my next purchase."









When it comes to T-Shirts we know what guitar players love.  Our Guitar Tree of Life T-Shirt is based on the Celtic Tree of Life.  It is an intricate representation that links every root below to every branch above, depicting the network of natural bonds that links all Life together through music. But to make it even more meaningful to guitar players we decided to make make multiple versions of this design featuring five different types of guitars that are meaningful to different guitar players.

If they are a Thalia Brand Fan, we have a number of cool brand designs to choose from and we also have a New Typography Design that uses the names of the Greatest Fingerstyle Guitar Players of all time to create the design.  



If you're giving a Thalia Capo, Pick Tin, or Strap as a gift and want to make a better impression upgrade to our Premium Gift Box. The box itself is made of high end soft touch paper and comes with a large micro-fiber gift bag.
