December 2017 Staff Picks

Josh BaldridgeCollings – CJ35 – Custom Jet Black Top
This CJ-35 has that focused, dry attack that has long made it our favorite build of the CJ lineup. The Jet Black finish, offset by the simple Ivoroid appointments really sets this apart visually.

Eric PutnamCollings – I-35 LC – Pelham Blue
First of all the finish on this guitar looks amazing. Depending on the lighting you get a light metallic Pelham blue or even a royal blue. This guitar will look fantastic under stage lights! Besides being one of the best looking guitars to hang on our wall, it also plays and sounds great. The Wolftone Dr. Vintage set has the right balance of clarity and output and will work in a variety of situations. Great guitar!

This mando can be mellow in tone when you hold back, and bright and loud when you dig in. A modern player with a really great vintage look and feel! An impressive instrument all around.

I love the Collings MT Black top. It’s a wonderfully responsive mandolin with a lot of punch! Great tone with plenty of volume and a gorgeous black gloss top. This is a sweet one!

I’ve been hunting around for a more appropriate old-time guitar the past few months and this E10 00 SS is very appealing. Short scale, slope-shoulder, comfy to play and a nice Adirondack top that makes for big sounding little guitar. Eastman is still quietly making some of the best solid wood guitars around.
