Left to right: A Charango that my fiancé bought me in Peru, a Mandolin that I got as a gift, a Fluke Uke, and a Kona Uke (on loan from my future father in law.)
I bought this one in 2002 because it came with a hard case and I was about to travel to the Salt Lake Olympics. Then, I used it to teach pre-school music for a few years. It's grown up to be a great sounding acoustic. It still has some stickers on it from its pre-school days.
This is a Spanish-made classical guitar. I use it for romantic and flamenco sounding tracks. I also use it for practice; it's great!
This Fender P/J Bass was left at my house in approximately 1996. I've removed the active system to get rid of that buzz and I love playing it on funk and jazz tracks. Sometimes I bring it to jazz jam sessions. Playing the bass in the band is like driving the bus!
It's a strat! You gotta have a strat!
This Gitane is awesome! It's great for the funny/quirky stuff! I use it for Gypsy Jazz and to double some acoustic parts.
It's a Gold Tone Banjo! It's super fun to play, it sounds... like a banjo, and I love it. I'm working on some solo banjo music. :)
The Gibson L5s
This is an L5 neck on a solid body. It sounds jazzy, it sounds funky, it can ROCK! It's a great all-around guitar. When I got my first "real" paying gig, I used the money to buy this. It's sweet!
