We’ve got a lot of great new gear in the store as well as some really cool vintage and used gear as well. Here’s what we’ve had our eyes on lately at Mass Street Music:
Simply incredible strat in every aspect and Dave’s relic job is second to none. This guitar is a pure player at a great price.
The body is one of the best relic jobs I’ve ever seen. The level of detail in the trem cavity shows he really pays attention to details. It’s a great feeling strat style guitar.
I am always amazed at the quality found in the Eastman line. If you are considering picking up mandolin you would be hard pressed to find a better deal than the MD505. You get nice solid woods, nice hardware including a cast tailpiece and Schaller tuning machines. The lacquer finish is polished to a nice high gloss. The MD505 comes with a hybrid style hard case. The 5 series Eastman mandolins are, in my opinion the perfect balance of nice high end features and value.
Beautiful full sound, gorgeous instrument.
If you want the same tone as the big dogs like Pink Floyd and McCartney then you need this pedal. Of course, there are other variables such as your amp/guitar, but this pedal gets anything from the smoothest overdrive you’ve heard to a more gainy, attack-oriented tone. This is the best overdrive pedal out there and completely worth the hefty tag.
Alek Nelson – Eastman AC512CE Acoustic
This guitar sounds great – it’s super responsive to even the lightest touch. I can’t believe how nicely appointed the instrument is for the price. The wood bindings and rosette look awesome.
The bassist in my band tried this out the other day and we were blown away. On our site the pedal is described as an “Enhancer”. Enhancer is definitely the best way to describe it. It took his bass rig to the next level, and I cannot wait to see how it sound sounds in the studio.
Mahogany body, one mini humbucker that doesn’t sound very mini at all and a very cool Les Paul Jr vibe to it. Nice low price too – it’s a cheap real rocker that sounds and plays great.
Jesse Roberts – Griffith Pick – I love picks, and I love all things cow. Therefore my pick is Griffith Picks. These handmade dandies are crafted by Lawrence native Dave Griffith, from the hooves of cattle. They have a nice and sturdy play about them, which is what you might expect given the material. Cowboy songs, here I come.
Chucho – Tiny Skulls Guitar Strap
Chucho says this not only looks super cool, but it’s sturdy enough to withstand him gnawing on it. Nice.
