Josh BaldridgeTom Anderson Guitars – T Icon – Sonic Blue In-Distress Level 2
The pickups in this tele are probably the best pairing of a humbucker and single-coil bridge pickup that we’ve ordered. I think they work really well together, the color is gorgeous, and I wish I had with me at all times.

Jim Baggett – Collings Guitars – CJ35 – Custom Jet Black Top
Cool guitar in an even cooler finish. Hard to top this short-scale, sloped-shoulder build from Collings.

Eric PutnamTom Anderson Guitars – Icon Classic – Mystic Teal
Ridiculously good guitar! I really love the sound of the PH-2 in the bridge of this guitar. It is fatter than a standard single coil, but still balances well with the neck and middle pickups. Great feeling neck and incredibly resonant guitar!

Matt Pelsma – Taylor Acoustic Guitars – 324CE V-Class
As a big fan of the V-class, it is great to see if come to the 300 series; more affordable and stripped down, this is a top-line working-person’s guitar.

Brian Soden – Xact Tone Solutions – Winford Drive
I dig this pedal so much! There is good reason the Xact Tone Solutions Winford Drive can be spotted on pedalboards of many top players. You can cover so many bases with this unit – from Classic Rock rhythm grit to high gain for big leads with tons of mid control to help you cut through any mix. True bypass and built to take abuse from the road. Hand made by a great crew in Nashville, TN.

Mike Horan – Collings Guitars – OM1 Traditional T Series Custom Sunburst
This is a lovely guitar, endowed with the quick string response and open tonal character we’ve come to expect from the Traditionals. Its incredible volume gives the illusion of playing a much bigger guitar.

Matt Harmon – Don Grosh Basses – 2011 T Bass #1 – Used
A modern classic, this T bass is such a killer instrument. Don’t let your chance slip away and pick this up.

Trey DurkinOME Banjos – 12″ Tupelo – Open-Back
This is the plunkiest old-time sounding Ome I have played yet. Lots of natural woody character but still retains the pop and brightness Ome banjos are known for. Steel strings are nice and powerful but this would also be a great candidate for a set of Nylguts.

Susan Willits – Gretsch Resonators – G9200 Boxcar Round-Neck – Natural
I love the sound of resonator guitars and the Gretsch G9200 Boxcar guitar is a great sounding, affordable resonator you can add to your line up! The mahogany neck and body, along with the Gretsch Ampli-Sonic resonator cone, give it a rich, full, warm sound. This is a great way to add some variety to your sound!

Matt KappenmanWaterloo by Collings – WL-14 X Truss Rod – All Mahogany
This all-Mahogany build from Austin, TX is one impressive guitar. So often all mahogany guitars are muddy, and boxy, but this X-braced model is clear and articulate with a ton of warmth from the Mahogany top. The vintage neck shape totally harkens back to those pre-war budget builds of old.
