Josh BaldridgeTom Anderson Electric Guitars – Icon Classic – Fiesta Red – Distress Lv1
This Icon Classic rings out so clearly, even when unplugged. Great for lead lines up the neck, very expressive/vocal and screams to be played with the trem arm.

Jim Baggett – Collings Acoustic Guitars – D2H Traditional T Series 1 11/16
Extremely comfortable neck profile matched with a very responsive guitar. These new necks are some of the best feeling we’ve had from Collings.

Eric PutnamStrymon Effect Pedals – Volante
Another amazing delay from Strymon! You can get anything from Binson echorec sounds to studio tape delays. The multiple heads give you endless options for rhythmic delay sounds or ambient washes. The sound on sound mode is very useful, and the built in spring reverb sounds great!

Matt Pelsma – Taylor Acoustic Guitars – K14ce Builder’s Edition
The new builder’s edition is fantastic, Taylor keeps pushing the envelope with the V-Class architecture. Really looking forward to the new Grand Pacific and Grand Concert, but the Grand Auditorium hits a serious sweet spot.

Brian Soden – Fender Amplifiers – ’57 Custom Deluxe – Alnico Cream – Limited
I can’t say enough good things about this amp – it just exhibits pure vintage Fender vibe and tone! Fantastic touch-sensitivity and breaks up very nicely with the Cream Alnico speaker. By far, one of my favorite amps in the store!

Mike Horan – Collings Acoustic Guitars – 01 Traditional T Series Baked – Sunburst
This guitar is a little gem! Beautiful to behold and with a full tone despite its size. An obvious choice for fingerpicking, and I loved the way it responded to a flatpick!

Trey DurkinLakota Leathers Straps
These straps are great! I’ve got one for my banjo and my guitar and they perfectly distribute the weight of the instrument in a comfortable, yet fashionable way. I’m thinking about getting a couple more! These are made with excellent quality leathers, with many styles and color options. A great accessory to go with a fine instrument!

Susan Willits – Eastman Mandolins – MD404
The Eastman MD404 oval hole mandolin has a lovely sound and plays easily up and down the neck. Made with a solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, this is a quality instrument at a great price. Even comes with a hard shell case!

Matt KappenmanGretsch Electric Guitars – G5622T Electromatic Center Block w/Bigsby – Georgia Green
This Georgia Green Electromatic catches my eye every morning when I walk in the door. Something about the Green/Cream combo and the vintage inspired pickups that makes me want to start the day playing it. Great deal on a thin archtop!
