Josh Baldridge – Taylor Acoustic Guitars – 812e DLX 12 Fret
Out of the stack of Taylor guitars we had down at Winfield I knew this one was a keeper, and that we had to bring it back to the store.

Jim Baggett – Collings Acoustic Guitars – D1 Traditional T Series 1 11/16
I was lucky enough to check out the 1 11/16″ prototype traditional necks back in the spring. We’ve been eagerly anticipating these new Traditional builds and it was absolutely worth the wait. If you’re a 1 11/16″ player and have been feeling left out of the Traditional series, these are the guitars for you.

Eric Putnam – Dr. Z Amps – Z Plus 1×12″ Studio Combo – Blonde/Tan
Great sounding amp for both clean and dirty sounds. Depending on where you run the EQ you can get mid-60s Fender clean tones or tweedish crunch. Like all DR. Zs it takes pedals great as well!

Matt Pelsma – PreSonus Audio Interfaces – STUDIO 68
This interface is a must for anyone looking to track drums or start a podcast. With 4 channels of simultaneous recording, get a great room sound plus a few close up mic’s, or adapt to whatever recording situation you may need. X-Max preamps sound great with a lower noise floor. Join our recording clinic Oct. 13th for some great insights on how to use an interface like this.

Brian Soden – Fender Electric Guitars – American Original ’60s Stratocaster – Candy Apple Red
This particular American Original Fender Strat is a stand-out guitar. I have a Candy Apple Red guitar with rosewood fingerboard, myself, so the looks drew me in immediately! Nitro finish, great weight and feels like an amazing vintage guitar right out of the gate. Have one of our skilled luthiers upstairs set it up how you like and you’re set!

Mike Horan – Eastman Mandolins MD615-CS with K&K Pickup
This model got a lot of attention last week at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS. We were happy to present an excellent Eastman as a prize instrument in the National Mandolin Championship! There is absolutely no F-mandolin that can touch this one at this price point. Excellent projection with a nice thick bark to the chop chords.

Matt Harmon – Tom Anderson Electric Guitars – Icon Classic – Lacquer 3 Color Burst Distress Level 1

Trey Durkin – Collings Acoustic Guitars – 2008 CW Mh A Winfield Prize – Used
All I can say is ‘Wow’ when it comes to this one. I fell for this guitar while making some minor adjustments to get it ready for the sales floor. This CW has a rich full sound, beautiful appointments, and the elusive Wheat headstock inlay that really hits home for us here at MSM. This extra special Collings stands in a class of its own.

Susan Willits – OME Banjos – Juniper Megatone Bluegrass Resonator
With aged brass hardware, showy abalone and mother of pearl inlay, and caramel colored tuning buttons the Ome Juniper Megatone Bluegrass banjo is a beauty! It plays like a dream up and down the neck. This Ome has a lot of punch and a full, ringing sound. It’s a great banjo!
