The Gretsch G5230T Electromatic Jet is perfectly matched guitar for a vast array of musical genres from Rockabilly to AC/DC. This model is loaded with two Black Top FilterTron pick ups and a Bigsby Tremolo. The G5230T is as articulate and responsive as a Gretsch can be. It’s light weight chambered mahogany body and carved Maple top create an extremely balanced and smooth feel. This guitar is available in a very cool Cadillac green.

Brian Soden – Suhr Amps – Badger 30 Amplifier Head
The Suhr Badger 30 is one of my top 5 favorite amps. I used one for years both on the road and in the studio. It’s incredibly easy to dial in no matter what size room you’re in utilizing the power scaling control. Plus, it takes pedals like a champ! Everything Suhr makes is incredibly reliable and built for heavy use. Pair this head with the Suhr 1×12 matching cab we carry and “boom” – you’re set!

Mike Horan – Martin Acoustic Guitars – D-18 – Natural
Still one of my absolute favorite new guitars. This model has been consistently excellent since they upgraded it several years back. And we’re lucky to have them in stock–these have been hard to come by!

Trey Durkin – Eastman Acoustic Guitars – E10SS
Classic slope-shoulder vibes, without the price tag associated with a vintage classic. These Eastman guitars have always had impressive specs at an incredible price, and if you’ve never played a slope shoulder dread, this model is definitely worth checking out! They are slightly smaller than the Martin dreadnought body shape and also have a shorter scale length, which imparts a much more comfortable overall feel. I’ve had one of these since 2012, and it keeps getting better and better!

Susan Willits – Gold Tone Banjos – Cripple Creek 11″ Open Back
I’m happy to say that we now have a boisterous bevy of banjos in stock! Just in time for the holidays, we have the Gold Tone Cripple Creek 11″ Open Back banjo. Great for a beginner, or for someone that already plays banjo, but would like something lighter. These banjos sound great and play nicely, all up and down the neck. Plus, you can play it for hours and not have it put your legs to sleep!

Matt KappenmanDon Grosh Electric Guitars – ElectraJet Shell Pink- Short Scale
Offset, short-scale, nitro-finish and soap-bar P90-style pickups, this ElectraJet ticks all the boxes for me when it comes to a great offset electric guitar. There are a couple of MSM staffers who own these and I’m always jealous when checking them out. Great quality, playability and sound from Don Grosh.
