Josh BaldridgeTaylor Acoustic Guitars – 214ce Plus
We have been selling a bunch of Taylor 214 models over the past couple of years. My favorites have been the Deluxe models that come with a hardshell case, but the 214ce Plus that came out last year is definitely the best value. The hybrid Aero case that comes with this version is a perfect fit between portable and protective.

Eric Putnam – JAM Pedals – Delay Llama mk.2
I’ve picked it before and I’ll pick it again! This is my all time favorite delay pedal. It’s simple, and the repeats are the perfect amount of warm but not muddy. It lives somewhere in between a good tape echo and analog delay. Every Jam pedal is hand painted, so even if you do not play guitar you can buy it as a piece of artwork! Who doesn’t want a hand made piece of art from Athens Greece!

Brian Soden – Greer Amps – Lightspeed Organic Overdrive Pink and White
Nick Greer makes some of our favorite drive and fuzz pedals in the shop. The Lightspeed is a top seller and now offered in this sweet pink color scheme! Seriously. I feel like I need one of these, myself! The Lightspeed gives you a nice low to medium gain transparent overdrive, perfect for stacking with a driven amp or another overdrive.

Trey Durkin – Collings Guitars – Parlor 1 Mh Traditional T Series
This is another stunning instrument from Collings. This one immediately feels like a friend, and it is hard to stop playing once I pick it up. Like all the traditional series guitars, it is amazingly open sounding for a new guitar, and will only get better.

Susan Willits – ODE Banjos – 12″ Sundance Open Back Banjo w/Wooden Armrest
Ome has recently resumed production of the Ode banjo and we just received our first 12″ Ode Sundance. This Ode features a multi ply maple tone rim and a wood rim rod, giving it a lovely, warm tone. Not only is it a lot of fun to play, one of the advantages of this banjo is the build quality, which makes it a great choice for an experienced player, as well as being affordable enough for a beginner.
