We have loads of great new gear in the store and some killer used items as well. Here’s what’s been turning our heads at the store lately…
Jim Baggett – Collings D2H VN Custom
Beautiful sound on this – we’ve really been pleased with the no tongue brace combined with Adirondack bracing – a small change that makes a big difference with Collings’ already exceptional build.
Tim Nelson – Collings 01 SB
The sunburst on this guitar is just gorgeous. I really like the subtle light 1 style ‘burst Collings does. The woods they picked to build this guitar are unique and beautifully figured. This guitar is surprisingly warm for a single 0 size. A lot of fun to play.
Matthew Khomsi – TC Electronics Hall of Fame Reverb
There is a reason this pedal has been so hot even though it has been out for over a year – it’s awesome! I use this pedal all the time and I haven’t even taken advantage of the cool Toneprint feature yet, where you can replace the last patch on it. This is my favorite reverb pedal by far.
Alek Nelson – Music Man Stingray 4 HH Bass
This may be the most gorgeous bass I have seen in the store! The “roasted Maple” neck is beautiful and is similar to naturally aged woods with a lower moisture content. Great tone. Just look at the pictures, they do all the talking.
Mike Horan – Repair Shop – Posch DM
This vintage-styled Mahogany dreadnought delivers on so many levels. Aesthetically, the hand-rubbed sunburst Adirondack top is stunning. Leo Posch’s method highlights the depth in the Spruce that you don’t get with a spray-on burst. And the lighter stain that he uses on the back really highlights the Mahogany grain as well. As for the sound, this guitar has a broken-in, super responsive sound that is rare in new guitars. The bass end is big, without being tight, and balances well with the treble strings. The fret work is exceptional, and plays true up and down the neck. I’ve had a Posch DM for 5 years now, and continue to be inspired by it. My only regret is that my life doesn’t allow me more time with it.
Anne Tangeman – Anderson Short T Classic
I’m not normally a tele person, but there’s something about the feel of this one I really like. The pickups too are out of this world – I think it’s a real workhorse that can do just about anything.
