January 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 January's Staff Picks:

Joel's Pick

1963 Gibson Byrdland

Joel's Pick

"The maple on the back and sides is exquisitely figured, the ebony board is fast and smooth, and the short scale makes it play like no other Gibson. And I'm always a sucker for the Florentine cutaway (as opposed to the Venetian you see a lot of). LOVE this guitar"

Sarah's Pick

Crescent 20” Wide Ride

Sarah's Pick

"I've loved Sabian cymbals for years and am excited to they are reviving Crescent Cymbals. This 20" Wide Ride from the Stanton Moore collection slays with a either a ride or a crash with it's low, dark tones. Chicago Drum Exchange is proud to be one of the hand-selected dealers to bring the vintage voice of Crescent Cymbals back to the
world."

Andrew's Pick

Sam's Pick

1958 Gibson J-50 Natural

Sam's Pick

"This wonderful old guitar surely has a story to tell. It has taken a beating over nearly 70 years, but continues to play with a warm and resonant tone. Get your hands on this guitar and you will be smiling the whole time."

Geon's Pick

1967 Fender Coronado II

Geon's Pick

LeVeque's Pick

Keeley Loomer

Le Veque's Pick

"An immaculate combo of reverb and fuzz to make your shoegaze sparkle, or your black metal darker. Never has there been a better combo, not even whiskey and cigarettes."

Chris's Pick

1983 Gibson Flying V Black

Chris's Pick

"This guitar has endless mojo and plays like a dream. Every time I pick it up, I immediately find myself playing old-school Metallica riffs. What else are you supposed to play on an early ’80s Flying V?!"
