Kyle RalstonTom Anderson Guitars – Icon Classic In-Distress – Level 0 – Lake Placid Blue
Loaded with two VA7.2’s, the biggest and baddest of Anderson’s vintage single coil pickups, and a HC2 humbucker in the bridge, this is truly a versatile guitar! It is also equipped with Tom’s patented V-Q system that helps reduces any 60-cycle hum that may be incurred either in the studio or live performances. All these features are encased in a cool, very thin, Lake Placid Blue, nitrocellulose finish to reflect every nuance of musical emotion you may inflict on this perfectly balanced instrument.

Matt Pelsma – Taylor Acoustic Guitars – AD27e – American Dream – V Class – Flame Top – Maple
I love maple guitars, and this bold, bright and loud guitar is a great example. Taylor makes a guitar that looks classic and new at the same time.

Brian Soden – Mythos Pedals – 1347 Silicon Fuzz – Mass Street Music Edition
Mass Street friends, we’re very proud of this one! The 1347 Silicon Fuzz is our latest collaboration with Mythos Pedals and our attempt to capture all of the great things we love about fuzz faces and address some of the hiccups. The end result is an extremely adaptable and versatile fuzz! At this stage, I’ve used several different guitar/amp combinations with the 1347 and all have yielded killer authentic fuzz face tones across the board. Don’t miss out on our second run that will be arriving in a few weeks! (Preorder Here)

Mike Horan – Leo Posch Acoustic Guitars – J-M
Vintage-inspired looks but with a modern neck feel and ease of playability. Like all of Leo’s guitars, the sound just pops out of this thing with very little effort. Great guitar!

Matt HarmonBOSS Effect Pedals – SY-200 Synthesizer
Finally, a synth pedal that doesn’t require a special pickup and has savable presets! The best feature, in my opinion, is having the Direct Level and the Effect Level as physical knobs on the pedal that you can blend any amount of dry/wet signal. Way to go BOSS!

Trey Durkin – Ernie Ball Super Slinky Electric Strings
It can be easy to overlook the little things like string brand/gauge, but these things can have a huge impact on sound and playability. Ernie Ball Slinky strings have been my go-to for years. With slightly less winds per inch, the wound strings have a slightly lower overall tension than many other brands, providing an extra-comfy “slinky” feel. Plus, with their distinctive neon-colored packaging, it is always easy to remember which strings you bought last time! Come check out our selection.

Susan Willits – Leo Posch Acoustic Guitars – AJ RW
When you play one of Leo’s guitars you feel like you’re playing a piano! With a very rich, full, vibrant tone, this Rosewood AJ is a beautiful guitar, accented with tortoise strap buttons and bridge pins, a sunburst finish and a fire stripe pickguard. Sweet!
