Josh BaldridgeGreer Amps – Soma 63 Vintage Preamp
This is one of those pedals that comes in and we all get very excited to buy one. Most of us have more than enough drive pedals, but the way that this pedal responds both at low and high gain is addictive!!

Jim Baggett – Collings Small-Body Guitars
Small body guitars have become the instruments of choice by folk artists like the Milk Carton Kids, I’m With Her, Brandy Carlisle and more. These Traditionals are very comfortable to play and surprisingly loud and dynamic.

Eric PutnamCollings Electric Guitars – City Limits Deluxe Olympic White
This City Limit sounds huge while still being incredibly clear and focused. The sustain is unbelievable on this one, even at low volumes notes seem endless. Also if you show up in a t-shirt at a wedding you can just bring this guitar with you and everyone will still think you are classy!

Matt Pelsma – Collings Acoustic Guitars – Baritone 2H
The bass and sustain on this Baritone is unlike anything I have heard before, totally what you would expect from a Collings guitar. Super fun. You’ll find it a necessary extravagance after you give it a strum.

Brian Soden – Collings Acoustic Guitars – OM2H A Traditional T Series 1 11/16
One of my favorite Collings builds. This Traditional model sports a 1 11/16″ nut width, which fits my hand perfectly as I’m predominantly an electric player and more accustomed to a smaller neck profile. I can pick this guitar up and feel right at home with it. I’ve been very fortunate to have played a number of pre-war acoustics and these guitars are as close as you can get in a new instrument, hands down.

Matt Kappenman Fender Electric Guitars – American Performer Series Telecaster – Penny
This tele is a great deal on a Made in the USA Fender. The modern C Shape neck is very comfy, and has just enough meat to the profile that I feel right at home coming from a more vintage-spec guitar.
