Josh BaldridgeFender Electric Guitars – American Professional Stratocaster Solid Rosewood Neck Limited Edition – Desert Sand
I’ve really enjoyed this limited-run series from Fender. When we had the Antique Olive Telecaster last month, it received quite a bit of attention. The rosewood necks have felt great and I think the looks of this guitar are killer.

Eric PutnamMXR Effect Pedals – MXR TIMMY OD
The Timmy pedal has been a long time favorite, and MXR did a great job making a mini version. It works great as an always on transparent boost or as a versatile overdrive. If you have been looking at your board thinking, “how can I fit a sixth overdrive?” This is how!

Matt Pelsma – Waterloo by Collings – WL-14 LTR Sunburst Small Neck
The Waterloos have always been fantastic, and the thinner neck feels great with the same amount of resonance. Fantastic, vintage vibe with just the right amount of modernity.

Brian Soden – Mythos Pedals – Herculean V2 Overdrive – Top Jack
The newly revamped Mythos Pedals Herculean V2, now with top-mounted jacks, has quickly become one of my favorite overdrives in the shop. Imagine the best sounding TS and a pedal that rhymes with “Shimmy” had a baby. The baby would be named the Herculean V2! I’ve been impressed with how flexible it is with any rig I plug into. Whether I’m looking for big, fat and round tones or something with teeth, I can find it with this in the signal chain. Swing by the shop and check one out or give me a call to chat with any questions!

Mike Horan – Collings Guitars – OM1 A JL Traditional – Julian Lage Signature
We haven’t had one of these in a little while and I don’t know if I just forgot HOW much I like this model, or if this is just a particularly excellent instrument. I don’t think I’ve ever played a new guitar that already sounded this wide open. Practically perfect in every way….

Matt Harmon – BOSS Effect Pedals – DD-3T Digital Delay – Tap Tempo
A reissue of the famous DD-3 now with tap tempo, if Nels Cline approves then maybe I should too?

Trey DurkinEastman Mandolins – MD615-SB with K&K Pickup
This is a killer mando! Everything you could want in a lifetime instrument; An Adirondack Spruce top, figured Maple back, sides & neck, radiused Ebony fingerboard, Lacquer finish, and it even comes with a great K&K Pickup pre-installed. The recent update to this model added a pickguard and Pearl block inlays, which I am a big fan of. If you’ve been looking for a great mandolin at a great price, come check out our line of Eastman Mandolins!

Matt KappenmanTaylor Acoustic Guitars – 612ce 12-Fret Grand Concert
I grew up learning to play guitar on a maple Taylor, and this 612ce brings back the clear, articulate tone. Featuring that gorgeous “Brown Sugar” finish on the back and sides. We have this guitar on sale at 15% off which is an absolute steal.
