We’ve got lots of cool gear in the store this month, made it hard to choose just one each….here’s what we’ve been ogling lately:
John Flynn – Grosh ElectraJet
Any of them! Absolutely fantastic guitar – not another ‘me too’ body shape, but not so out there it looks faddish.
Jason Jones – Yamaha P-155
A wonderful player featuring a number of hyper-sampled, full-bodied piano sounds that, in conjunction with it’s litany of equally usable chromatic instrument sounds, makes for a high quality piano replacement wholly suitable for the pianist and hobbyist alike.
Brian Soden – Grosh Retro Classic Vintage T
This has to be one of the best sounding Tele-style guitars I’ve ever played. The Alder body provides perfect balance of snap, spank and richness, making the bridge position more than just a one-trick-pony. Meaning, you aren’t automatically reaching for the tone knob to roll back when taking a lead. Early 50s Fender mojo is all there, plus the belly cut on the back and the vintage-style locking tuners bring you modern comfort and convenience. No compromises here. Have your cake AND eat it too!
Matthew Khomsi – EP Booster
Xotic has outdone themselves again by providing a simple, killer sounding pedal at an unbelievable price. What a great contribution to pretty much any guitar player’s board.
Matt Christenot – London 65 Amp
Warm sound, vertical, like having two amps in one!
Isaac Flynn – Dr. Z Mazerati head
It sounds unbelievable, and being used (but mint) it’s a great deal.
Kurt Morrow – Taylor 114
This is a really great playing acoustic guitar. The neck profile is nice and slim and the sound is just beautiful. The solid Spruce top helps this guitar really sing. This is my “go to” guitar to demo for somebody looking for something of great quality to get started on and it’s affordable at $650 bucks.
Anne Tangeman – Kay Thin Twin
…not for everyone, but if you love raw, old time rock and roll and a little grit in your style, this is a lot of fun and sounds wonderful.
Chucho – Planet Waves Clip on Chromatic Tuner
Chucho likes this. Especially the cardboard package it comes in.
