Overdrive and piezo pickups

Started this discussion. Last reply by Rick Tish Aug 15. 8 Replies

How did you get your best crunchy overdriven tones out of a cbg with a piezo?   I don't generally prefer any more than a natural crunch.  Half the time, the amp is plenty, the rest of the time, I use…Continue

Player's Gear--brick and mortar shop

Loading up the shop.  The six string guitars draw the people in.  Just in case you're interested, the guitars in the rack are as follows:  Silvertone Stratotone Jupiter Reissue, Silvertone U2 reissue, Samick Acoustic, Teton "mini-jumbo" travel guitar, and Teton Baritone acoustic/electric. A semihollowbody Gretsch, a relic telecaster,  and a hollowbody Loar with 2 dogear P90 pickups stand guard at the front window.  Also have a couple of  vintage amps to get the shopper's attention.It's amazing…See More

brick and mortar

From now until the end of December, I'm doing the brick and mortar thing.  There's a refurbished mall in Marion, Indiana's downtown that the housing authority is really pushing to revitalize.  Got a good deal on a Nov-Dec only lease.  The most happening restaurant in the county is in the basement and I'm right in the middle of the line of sight when customers enter the building through the front door.  I'm still filling the place up, but I've got a basic plan for the space.  Here's to hoping to…See More

Dropped off some pick art and guitar neck coat racks at the Muncie, IN-based music store.  You may be more familiar with their online division, World Music Supply.  They will be carrying my stuff in the brick and mortar store.  It felt really good to get the things I build into their shop. 

I am trying to convince them that the CBG market is untapped in our area and that it is ripe for sales.  Maybe I'll…

Ducktail Run in James Dean Country

Posted on September 29, 2019 at 9:57pm 1 Comment

Sold a few guitars and made some new friends this weekend.  The highlight for me was when my vendor neighbor Soaring Eagle came over after I had started playing a 3 string brownie pan guitar to ask me to turn it up and play more often because 1. it drew customers to not only my booth, but the booths around me; and 2. he just plain loved the music.  Ducktail Run and the two other festivals going on in the county, the Jonesboro River Rally and Fairmount's James Dean Days always brings in huge…
