January Staff Picks!

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 FlynnGrosh ElectraJet

Any of them! Absolutely fantastic guitar – not another ‘me too’ body shape, but not so out there it looks faddish.

The killer Grosh EJ Custom in 'rootbeer' metallic finish. Yowza!

Jason JonesYamaha 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 SodenGrosh 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 KhomsiEP 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.

Just about the whole staff went nuts for this EP Boost!

Warm sound, vertical, like having two amps in one!

Isaac FlynnDr. Z Mazerati head

It sounds unbelievable, and being used (but mint) it’s a great deal.

Kurt MorrowTaylor 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.

Looking for a great starter with real tone? Kurt says this is the one

Anne TangemanKay 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.

Not everyone's cup of tea, but I like it's raw, old rock and roll style

I like it!
