Josh BaldridgeCollings Acoustic Guitars – Parlor 1 Traditional T Series
The whole package here is just so enticing, especially when combined with the almost impossibly small Collings case. This parlor-sized traditional is a small, comfortable player, yet expressive and dynamic.

Eric PutnamDon Grosh Electric Guitars – ElectraJet Charcoal Frost – Short Scale
Great playing guitar. Don’s G90 pickups are super versatile. Resonant, light weight, and the charcoal frost finish looks great! Liked it so much I ordered one for myself!

Brian Soden – JHS Effect Pedals – Superbolt V2
We have such an incredible selection of great pedals here at the store, so much that I had almost forgotten about this gem! It absolutely nails the old Supro tone we all know and love. If you’re not familiar, just listen to Led Zeppelin’s debut album. It also covers roots-rock/Americana territory in spades. This pedal may need to come home with me!

Trey DurkinBart Reiter Banjos – Regent Open-Back with Scoop
I’ve gone Whyte Laydie tone ring crazy!! This Regent is another fantastic banjo from one of my favorite modern makers, Bart Reiter, up in Lansing, MI (One of my personal banjos is a Bart). This instrument features an 11″ pot, Maple neck and Rim construction, and a Whyte Laydie tone ring. One of the most versatile banjos I have ever played. A monster for fingerstyle, clawhammer, or whatever else you can throw at it. Huge full rich sound – somehow warm, mellow, but bright and crisp at the same time?! I highly recommend checking this one out!

Susan Willits – Bart Reiter Banjos – Round Peak
The banjos all sit right outside my office, a constant temptation! Today I picked up the Bart Reiter Round Peak to play a couple tunes. I love the tubby, low sound of the 12″ pot which is perfect for frailing, with a warm mellow sound, but when you put on your picks it also sounds great playing Scruggs style tunes! Bart makes an extremely affordable, yet great playing banjo. You can’t go wrong with a Bart Reiter!

Matt Kappenman Fender Guitars – American Performer Series Telecaster Hum – Aubergine
A Rosewood board tele with a humbucker in the neck is the way to my heart. Love these new American Performer series builds, especially the vintage details like brass saddles along with a few modern upgrades like a push/pull coil tap on the neck pickup.
