The OG has a nice accommodating 25″ scale and 1 11/16″ nut with make this guitar a very comfortable player. It’s a great, punchy, and dynamic little guitar that has a lot of personality. Iris guitars are made in Vermont, and at a price point that can’t be beat in this class!!
I would love to hear what this guitar will sound like a few years down the road!

Brian Soden – Dr. Z Amps – MAZ 18 Jr. Reverb Mk.II 2×10 LT Combo – Black with Salt and Pepper Grill
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had a MAZ 18 in a 2×10 format! Man, I love this circuit with 10″ speakers. Nice and punchy and suitable for pretty much any gig or recording situation. A perfect blend of British / American flavor.

Mike Horan – Iris Guitars – OG – Tobacco Burst – Ivoroid with Firestripe Guard
This guitar nails the 50s Gibson sound and look—-but unlike a 50s Gibson, it doesn’t need a $1000 worth of work to make it play! Crafted by a dedicated crew in Burlington, Vermont, Iris Guitars deliver a lot of value for an American-made guitar in this price range. And….they’re totally cool.

The revstar is an awesome choice for a great price! The RSS02T has a chambered mahogany body for reducing weight, maple top, comfortable matte 3 piece mahogany neck with carbon fiber reinforcements, and stainless steel frets that will allow you to play for a long time and not have to worry about fretware.You’ve also got double P90’s and a 5 way pickup selector switch allowing for lots of tonal versatility. Revstars also include a “Focus Switch” activated by the push pull tone pot that essentially acts as an internal boost for the pickups.

Susan Willits – ODE Banjos – Magician – 12″ Open Back Banjo – Wooden Armrest
The Ode 12″ Magician, made in Boulder, Colorado, is a well built, high quality banjo, with a cherry neck and a curly maple rim. It’s easy to play and sounds great. I enjoy the aged brass hardware, and it has 5th string spikes at the 7th and 9th frets, so it’s ready to play in multiple tunings. We have a great selection of banjos here in the store. Come on in and check them out!
