October 2017 Staff Picks

Josh BaldridgeTom Anderson – T Classic Shorty Hollow Contoured – Blonde
I often get asked about what kind of guitar can cover all the bases at a gig…this is it. It looks classy and gives so many usable tones at the flick of a switch.

Eric PutnamFender – American Elite Jazz Bass – Ocean Turquoise
One of the best looking basses I have seen in the shop. The active electronics are versatile and sound great. The neck shape is very comfortable as well.

Matt Pelsma – Martin Acoustic Guitars – 2017 D-28 New
Even though it’s new for 2017, this is one of the most warmest guitars I have played out of the box. Very open and clean, this guitar has what most people are looking for on first pickup.

Brian Soden – Greer Amps – Moonshot Class-A Treble and Mid Pre
What a fantastic take on the classic treble booster! I sat down with the Moonshot and a handful of guitars with a JTM45 style amp and had an absolute blast dialing up tones. The Treble/Mid knob makes this treble booster so guitar-friendly! Love it!

Mike Horan – Collings Acoustic Guitars – C10-35 Jet Black Top
A great little guitar with a big voice and a real nice mid-range honk not usually characteristic of Collings. It has the looks and charm of an old L-00 but with great playability and intonation.

Trey DurkinBlueChip Flatpicks
These picks offer the perfect connection between your hand and your strings. The pick attack is as smooth as glass, with an edge that won’t wear down. They draw a rich, full tone out of instruments that you just have to hear to believe. The effect is particularly noticeable on acoustic instruments. These picks have spoiled me. If I use another pick I feel like I’m not getting the most out my instruments. These picks were a total game changer for me when I first tried them, and now I am a full convert.

Susan Willits – Huss & Dalton Acoustic Guitars – 1999 CM Custom Used
This 1999 Huss & Dalton CM Custom is a beautiful guitar. It’s easy to play with a full, deep, warm sound. A well cared for guitar with nice appointments, including flamed maple binding on the body and fingerboard. Sweet! Comes with a hardshell case.

Matt KappenmanWaterloo by Collings – WL-14 L T-Bar – SB
I have Waterloo fever…there’s just something about the dry, woody tone of these 14-fret models that has me day dreaming about old-time bass runs. If you’ve been chasing that ’30s Kalamazoo sound these guitars are the a fantastic option. Built at the Collings factory down in Austin, TX, the build quality far surpasses so many of the old catalogue guitars that inspired Bill Collings and Co.
