Inventory Update: 1st Quarter of 2011

Happy New Year!

I figured I would kick off the new year with a new feature: What does Rex have in stock right now? My friends know this is a moving target, but I figure I can draw a line in the sand at this moment in time and let you all in on my secret stash of goodness. I will try to update this once a quarter, so that everybody knows what is going on.

1. Art and Lutherie Ami parlour guitar. You will see me writing about this one soon. It is pure fun.

2. EBMM Stingray Classic 4 string. This is living in Chicago right now, but will probably find its way home to me.

3. 1983 Fender JV Precision Bass. The holy grail of Japanese P basses, and is the instrument that has lived in my stable the longest. Strung with flats, for the Motown thump.

4. 1994 Fender 62 RI Jazz Bass. Strung with rounds, this bass is sharp, and has had plenty of road wear and mojo applied.

5. 1997 Fender 52 RI Telecaster. I cannot believe that I have a Telecaster that is heavier than my Les Paul, but Fender figured out a way to make it happen for me. Bravo!

6. 1999 Fender 62 RI Stratocaster. Does this complete my collection of the major models from Fender?

7. Simon & Patrick Songsmith dreadnaught. The instrument I use the most, and a super-popular subject for readers of this blog. Go figure.

8. 1983 Tokai Love Rock. I love to use my Love Rock for rock.

9. Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 with 2 12-inch Shuttle cabinets. No drama to report with this set-up. I am still in love with it.

10. Cave Passive Pedals. These are the only products on my pedalboard besides my trusty Boss tuner.

11. Fender Vibro Champ XD. A super-cheap guitar amp that is working out pretty well. I will be putting together a report on this one, too. Soon. Real soon.

Check back on April 1st. I am sure my selection will look completely different. There are already a few changes in the works.
