February Staff Picks

Chicago Music Exchange staff members always have the scoop on the latest new, used, and vintage gear, and we love to tell you about it all. Check out February's Acoustic Edition of Staff Picks:

Chase's Pick

Late 1930s Kalamazoo KG-11 Sunburst

Chase's Pick

"This Kalamazoo KG-11 is a piece of American music history. Built in Kalamazoo, Mich., in the 1930s, it boasts the best tonal qualities of a handmade vintage acoustic guitar—it's warm, responsive, and has a TON of character. Since our techs reset the neck and refretted it, this KG-11 plays with ease. Trust me, it sounds as awesome as it looks."

Colleen's Pick

Gretsch G5022CWFE-12 Rancher Falcon Jumbo 12-String

Colleen's Pick

"I love the full tone this 12-string brings out to even the most simple of songs. This Gretsch brings warmth to the long, cold Chicago winter days. And it's got just enough sparkle to bring out anyone's inner Dolly!"

Drew's Pick

Gibson Montana Gold Mystic Rosewood Limited Edition of 403

Drew's Pick

"The crew at Gibson Montana really nailed this one! Beautiful, full-sounding guitar. I have a soft spot for the 200-type guitars, particularly ones with rosewood backs and sides. Come on in and try it!!"

Dan's Pick

Gibson Southern Jumbo Sunburst 1964

Dan's Pick

"There's nothing like a vintage Gibson acoustic, the sound and feel is unmatched! This one in particular has held up beautifully and plays like a dream. The neck is thin, but the sound is thick and vibrant. This Southern Jumbo can do it all and is good for way more than just cowboy chords!"

Karl's Pick

Martin Custom Shop 000 12-Fret Mahogany

Karl's Pick

"A couple of months ago, I was visiting the Martin factory and had the privilege of "first dibs" on any of the new stuff off the Custom Shop line. I saw one of these little suckers, immediately bought it, and ordered another one to be built—this is the second one!

"This little cannon has the balance and boom of a dread while still allowing the dynamic & string separation of a traditional parlor. An excellent choice for just about any style of playing."

Mike's Pick

Martin S-1 Ukulele

Mike's Pick

"This all-solid mahogany soprano sure is one sweet-sounding uke and feels just right whether you're tiptoeing through the tulips or going for a walk. Tiny and Dimebag would approve."
