There are some GREAT folks out there making or selling fantastic gear and I'm happy to turn people onto these great people!

Vintage Guitars

Vintage Licks Guitars (www.vintagelicksguitars.com) Benn at Vintage Licks is very knowledgeable and happy to share his experience with you.  Benn sold me my prized 1935 Kalamazoo KG-11.

New Guitars

Flammang Guitars (www.flammangguitars.com) David Flammang builds incredible instruments! He was kind enough to build for me my dream L-00 and my N-55X.

 

Microphones 

Ear Trumpet Labs (www.eartrumpetlabs.com) Phil builds the best sounding AND coolest looking mics around! These are designed especially for folks that are mic'ing acoustic instruments for live performance. I am using an Edwina model for all my live performances.
