Can we get some semi hollow love? A vintage @gibsonguitar ES-345TD on top with two @collingsguitars I-35s below. The middle is an I-35 Deluxe in Caramel finish and the bottom is an I-35LC in Faded Cherry. All three are sweet! . . . . . #gibson #gibsonguitar #gibsonguitars #vintagegibson #vintageguitar #collingsguitars #collings #collingsi35 #collingsguitar #semihollow #semihollowguitar #es345 #guitar #electricguitar #electricguitars #seattle #seattlewa #seattlewashington #seattlemusic #seattlemusicians #seattlemusicscene #fremont #fremontwa #fremontseattle #dustystrings #tonewood #figuredmaple #handmade #madeinaustin

Last weekend I was in Seattle, which necessitated a pilgrimage to the storefront of Dusty Strings.  They are some of the best and my personal favorite hammered dulcimer makers in the business. (They also make a highly regarded line of lever harps and carry a wide variety of other high-end acoustic instruments: guitars, mandolins, banjos, etc.) They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly and let you play any of the instruments, which are all set up and ready to play.  Quite simply, if you know me, you know this is basically paradise in my book.  Among a shockingly large number of instruments, I tried their top of the line hammered dulcimer model, which has many features that my own smaller dulcimers (all—yes, I meant to say “all”, I might need an intervention—made by Dusty Strings as well) lack.  Two interesting ones are an extended range of low notes and dampers (confusingly to us piano players, these mute the sustain when you press on them.) In my infinite wisdom I brazenly decided that with these extended features I could totally pull off hard rock 😂  Here is an impromptu cover of “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor, slightly clipped to fit within 1 minute.  If I could do it again (i.e. this were not one take on a phone in a store) I would use more high end for more contrast (as fun as the extra bass notes are), lock down the rhythm, etc.  But as they often say when talking about folk instruments and music, yolo #dulcimer #hardrock #folkmusic #acousticcovers #whoneedsdistortion
A bunch of G&L Tribute guitars are back in stock! These guitars pack a punch for their price point, have great sounding pickups, and feature impressive hardware.

Just in! A preowned 2018 @lowdenguitars S-35 12-fret ready to find a good home.

Here's to #musicmondays 🎧 This beautiful #8string flame koa tenor uke was handmade by @islandukulele ❤️ Ebony and #abalone finishes, 2012. The sound of a 8 string ukulele is so full! I am  grateful that @dustystringsmusic always has something new and unique for me to try when I am in Seattle. Trying new things keeps me challenged as a musician. It helps me grow and improve.  #ukulelecovers #whilemyguitargentlyweeps #whilemyukulelegentlyweeps  #ilovethisplace  What do you think? Should I start a separate insta for music? Or are you enjoying having my modeling and music here? #feedbackplease
