While in the studio at The Current, Delta Spirit's Matt Vasquez played a Fender Kingman, which actually has a connection to Elvis in the movies. Matt explains, and he also describes some of his other favorite guitars.
When Sydney's Boy & Bear were in the studio for a live session, front man Dave Hosking took some time to talk about his vintage Gibson guitar. One of the things that drew him to the instrument was how "it sounded like all [his] favorite Neil Young records."
After playing a set in The Current's studio, Field Report's Chris Porterfield and Tom Wincek took some time to talk about their guitars. Both describe interesting modifications they've made, including why Chris's guitar looks like an antique.
