I endorse Eastman Strings guitars -- Model 146 and 145. I also play a Cordoba RWCE Nylon string guitar. I used to play a Gibson Johnny Smith, but the weight and dimensions of the guitar made it too unwieldy to play. On my Eastman 146 and 145 models, I swapped out the Kent Armstrong in favor of Seymour Duncan SH-2 Humbuckers. I also play a Blackbird Carbon Fiber steel string acoustic guitar.
I play Quilter Labs Amplifiers. I sold all Polytones, Ampeg, and AER amps. The Polytones were unreliable and would drop filter capacitors like pine cones. I play through a MicroPro 200 Combo Amp. In addition, I play the head version of the Quilter with a MojoTone Custom 8 inch Celestian TF0818 cabinet. My last few records I was fortunate to use an amazing Diaz Tube amp at Red Rock Studio in PA. For Acoustic guitar, I use a Phil Jones amp. I recently purchased the updated ZT Lunchbox with reverb. I am avoiding elevators during Covid times and 9 lbs is perfect for stair climbing at school!!!
I am really excited about consulting and test driving a new travel archtop guitar that is modular for Paddock Design.
