July Staff Picks!!!

It’s sweltering outside so we don’t mind staying indoors and ogling the great gear at the store…here’s what we’ve had our eye on lately around the shop….

Voodoo Labs power supplies are new and quite amazing

John FlynnVoodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus

A friend of mine turned me onto these when I was having some noise issues with my ever-expanding pedal board.  They are simply incredible.  No wonder they are on almost every pedal board of the pros.

'42 Martin D-18

This is a very collectible guitar that’s a joy to play.

Wow. We all had a gander at this beauty

Tim NelsonCollings D1ASB Varnish

Collings has done it again. The varnish finish on this(CLICK ‘Continue Reading’ below to read all Staff Picks –>) guitar beautiful. The Collings 1 style sunburst has long been a favorite of mine and I must say it looks even better in varnish. The guitar absolutely sings. The overtones are rich and bell like. This is one powerful dreadnought, a guitar that I believe will be cherished for a very long time.

Another amazing guitar as well as relic job from Dave Seuferling. Brian's in love.

Brian SodenSeuf OF-20B

This guitar is beyond cool in so many ways.  The Mahogany used in this guitar is extremely lively and sounds beautiful with the low output Fralin in the bridge position.  Throw in a Bigsby that actually stays in tune and you have an alt-country player’s dream guitar!  Gorgeous Rosewood fingerboard and a lightly relic’d lacquer finish round out, what I consider, the best Seuf we’ve ever received on every level.  Absolutely incredible.

Fast and furious – this is a great guitar.

This is just incredible. Beautiful tone, volume and looks.

Matt ChristenotT.C. Electronic Polytune

We just got a new shipment of these in and they are seriously cool. You don’t see something so innovative often in an essential item.

Josh in Repairs gives this Fender Bass a thumbs up

Repair ShopJosh BaldridgeFender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass

Vintage aesthetic with serious upgrades to the electronics…who could ask for more.  The combination of an Alder body and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard just feels great.  The electronics are American Deluxe Series controls and Vintage Noiseless Active pickups which give this bass a ton of tonal versatility.  I sat down with this instrument and was blown away with how easily it could produce a multitude of sounds.

Stingray 5!

Isaac FlynnErnie Ball Music Man Stringray 5

Seriously cool bass!

Anne's #1 this month - as Buster Poindexter once said, "hot hot hot"

Anne TangemanGrosh Retro Classic Black Cherry

Simply put, this RC is a sexy guitar with a great pickup configuration and it feels fantastic. Very, very cool.  I also have to second Brian’s pick of the Seuf OF-20B – it’s beyond cool and the photos don’t show the killer finish checking that Dave Seuferling does so well. Tremendous relic job on this one in addition to it just being a great guitar.

Chucho Mass Street Music Coffee Mug

We’re not saying we feed Chucho coffee (he’s about the only one here who doesn’t drink it!), but nonetheless, he’s a fan of our mug. Perfect if your water bowl is missing.
