Alec's Pick

Fender Offset Series Mustang PJ

Alec's Pick

"This cool axe combines the powerful thump of the Precision Bass, the cutting grind of the Jazz Bass, and the classic short-scale feel of the Mustang. What more could I ask for?"

George's Pick

Asher GT-3 Vintage White With Lollar Gold Foils

George's Pick

"The Asher GT-3 is just flat-out cool. But besides having mojo for days—make that years—the guitar has an incredible amount of tones. With three Lollar Gold Foils, you can truly get Tele, Strat, Teisco, and, because of its Varitone switch, even Gibson sounds. The pickups are extremely touch sensitive and react based on how hard or soft you attack. Like every Asher, the craftsmanship and attention to detail are as good as it gets. This guitar is a breath of creative fresh air that is nearly impossible to put down!"

John's Pick

Suhr Modern Pro HSH Faded Trans Whale Blue Burst

John's Pick

"Suhr guitars are set up amazingly well out of the box. They have treble bleed caps already installed, so it cleans up nicely when you roll down your volume. The stainless steel frets are rounded off perfectly, and the compound radius and contoured neck heel allow seamless access the entire fretboard. Zero deterrents—you forget about the guitar and focus on the music.

It’s hard not to notice the aesthetics. This Whale Blue Burst is truly beautiful with the flame maple top, plus basswood body and Pau Ferro fingerboard. Love this guitar!"
