2015 Colorado Guitar Show & Custom Luthier Expo Recap

Posted by Jim Black on 9/12/2015 to Announcements

Duane Evarts continues to knock it out of the park. This year's show had way more guitars and luthier's and not many amplifiers and music stores. We were still the only pedal folks in the place.

Duane and Jim

That's me, Jim, on the left and Duane on the right.

We met a few nice folks and a couple of characters. There was some hardcore buying and selling.

The booth next to mine had some very exotic and interesting instruments. The raffle give away was awesome.

2015 is going to be an exciting year for the Blog.
 
We are starting a series of articles about modifying a Fender Blues Jr to get some of the dirt out and bring some bass and mid frequencies to the party.
 
We show where to get the parts and how to use frequency analysis tools to verify the changes.
 
We walk you through a 1970's era ColorSound Fuzz-Wah restoration and modification. The owner wants a modern power jack and to turn it into a Swell-Fuzz-Wah.
 
We'll be thinking about what to talk about at the end of the year and welcome suggestions for topics.
