Roscoe (Grievous Angel)

Check out the tones coming from Roscoe playing a DC Guitar with Grievous Angel at their Carrick House Concert show this past December. This is a clip from "Ain't Got Time to Cry" (with Nolen Mendenhall rippin' up the bassline):

Joshua Moore (We Came As Romans)

Here's an old pic of Josh with a white DC that I made up for him for their "Dreams" EP tour. It's an all-maple body with a short Backbone™, set up for him with an EMG 85 at the neck and an EMG 81 at the bridge.

Mike Vial

I met Mike for the first time at his 12/14/08 performance at Carrick's. Great peformance! Halfway through his set he picked up the Amber guitar I had brought along (he'd never even played it before), plugged it straight into Craig's Blues Jr and ripped out his cover version of Clapton's "Change the World". What a cool, unique rendition. Check out the chords and transitions he uses. Mike's got skills... Thanks for playing it, Mike!

Paul Washington

I stopped by Motor City Guitar and recorded some clips of my friend Paul Washington playing the Amber guitar through a little practice amp. Listen for Paul changing the switch positions to get an idea of the different basic tones available. Add your own amp & effects to taste. ;)

Thanks for the help, Paul!
