Alvarez Masterworks MDA70CE acoustic-electric guitar – New Gear Day!

Alvarez Masterworks MDA70CE acoustic-electric guitar – New Gear Day!

These guitars are beautiful, and relatively inexpensive considering they are made out of all solid wood, bone nut and bridge, ebony pins and tuning key buttons plus Paua Abalone and Mother of Pearl.

I bought it new from Pacific Guitar Sales on reverb.com and got it for the offer I made of $800. They were asking $899.

So far, I’m loving it! The top is a bit more stiff than the Guild Jumbo (in the pix) and naturally it’s less boomy/bassy. So they each have quite different voices.

Blackstar HT-1R: Channel 1 at full gain and volume – lots of crunch on this 1-watt amp

Blackstar HT-1R crunch demo. I Recorded three short pieces using my 1 Watt Blackstar HT-1R Combo with the supplied 8″ speaker using my ZOOM Q3HD video camera with XY mics. This little amp provides great bass and crunch for such a small amp. Let me know if you have any questions or comments, and thanks for watching!

Western Wind – Original Music Orchestrated with electro-harmonix Mel9

“Western Wind” is an original music video composed by Richard McCargar and orchestrated with the new electro-harmonix Mel9 tape replay machine guitar pedal and played on a Guild Westerly Collection F-150 acoustic-electric guitar. It is the first song I’ve written with the orchestration in mind and made possible by this incredible mellotron style device reduced to the size of a guitar pedal. I love it!
