Gear Brian Loves!

I've been with Music Store Live since we were based out of Vermont and was happy to tag along for the ride when we relocated to sunny Southern California to help spearhead the transition! Winters out here sure are so much nicer. It doesn't get much better than living by the beach and playing with cool guitars all day.

Primarily I'm a bassist, but I simply cannot deny my passion for well-built and sexy-looking guitars. I'm not afraid to rock an axe that has some adventurous colors on it. The running joke in the office is that I'll scoop up any purple guitar that's offered to our shop... What can I say? I've never been known for subtlety. Is it flashy? Is it shiny? Sign me up!

I totally dig the sound of vintage axes, but I really appreciate all of the modern offerings that try to maintain those tones but improve (or at least put their own spin) on the playability and craftsmanship of instruments from yesteryear. I write the listing descriptions for most of the higher end stuff in the shop which gives me the awesome opportunity to get just about everything in my hands before we pack it up and put it away.

Here's the stuff I love the most right now! Check back soon, I update it regularly!

  2. Knaggs Severn X Trembuck Guitar, Charcoal Purple, T1 Flame Maple Top and Neck, Ebony Fretboard

    Player's Perspective Music Store Live is extremely excited to now offer Knaggs guitars in our lineup of high-end, boutique instruments. This one is truly just as amazing to play as it is to look at.

  4. Mayones Hydra Elite 7 - 7-String Guitar, Trans Black Satin, Ebony Fretboard, Eye Poplar Top, Duncan Pickups

    Player's Perspective Music Store Live is very proud to offer up this Mayones Hydra 7-String Headless Guitar. This guitar is aggressive and super fast to play and if you're not careful, it could just bite your head off, too... The irony, of course, being that a Hydra is a many-headed serpent from Greek mythology. This guitar, however, is hea
  5. PRS Paul Reed Smith Artist Package Custom 24 Guitar, Autumn Sky, Brazilian Rosewood

    Player's Perspective Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Artist Package Custom 24 from Paul Reed Smith. The rosewood neck is one of our favorite feeling necks ever.

  8. Warwick German Pro Series Corvette $$ 5-String Bass, Nirvana Black, Swamp Ash Body, Wenge Fingerboard

    Player's Perspective Warwick’s new Pro Series instruments are made entirely in Germany – in the same factory where Warwick’s highest-end, most souped-up models are built. The Pro Series was always good, but now it reflects a new standard of build quality, tone, and playability. This is a true German-made Warwick through and thr
  9. Ernie Ball Music Man Exclusive Run Luke III Guitar, Trans Gold, Japanese Maple, Roasted Flame Maple Neck and Fretboard - G92898

    Player's Perspective Music Store Live is extremely proud to offer up one of the first ever Music Man Exclusive Runs.

  10. PRS Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 Guitar, Charcoal Cherry Burst, Flame Maple, Rosewood

    Player's Perspective Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Custom 24 from Paul Reed Smith. We were stunned that this one didn't have the 10-top upcharge on it. That's one of the nicer non-10's that we've seen, and we've certainly seen a lot of PRS's in our days. The majority of Custom 24's, these days, are coming with 85/15 pickups, and

  17. Ernie Ball Music Man Exclusive Run StingRay Special 4-String H Bass, Trans Amber, Roasted Flame Maple, Super Lightweight Ash - F89928

    Player's Perspective Why did we hop on a 9+ hour (each way) train ride to go to San Luis Obispo so we could specifically select all of the woods for our exclusive run of instruments? So that you can get ash and flame maple that looks like this! AND so you can get a StingRay that only weighs... ... ... Wait for it... Under 8 lbs! Music Stor
