Josh Baldridge – Fender Guitars – American Ultra Telecaster RW – Texas TeaI think this new Tele looks amazing. It is a black metallic finish that changes in a subtle and cool way depending on the lighting. We had one back at the beginning of the year and it was gone quickly, so it is nice to get another in the door. Check out our collection … Continue reading April 2020 – Mass Street Staff Picks

Josh Baldridge – Bourgeois Acoustic Guitars – D – Vintage I appreciate how Bourgeois’ Asymmetrical Bracing Pattern works on this guitar. The lows are easily felt through the body by the player, but it doesn’t get overly boomy out in front of the instrument. Check out our collection of Bourgeois Guitars! Jim Baggett – Martin Acoustic Guitars – 1948 0-18 Sunburst Great little Martin 0-18 with a big … Continue reading October 2019 Staff Picks

Josh Baldridge – Collings Guitars – 2007 CW Brazilian Adirondack Varnish – Used With the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival right around the corner, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate instrument for this month than this 2007 CW (Collings Winfield).

Check out our collection of Used Guitars! … Continue reading August 2019 – Mass Street Staff Picks
