Vox TB35C1 & TB35C2 designed by Tony Bruno
Vox Tony Bruno-designed TB35C1 and TB35C2 Boutique amp builder Tony Bruno teamed up with Vox to design a production amp in two flavors—a 1x12 combo (TB35C1) and a 2x12 combo (TB35C2). The 35-watt amps pack punchy tones with plenty of volume, and both really shined with the Macho switch engaged (for a mid boost) and the Master Volume bypassed.
Veillette 12-String Baritone

Carvin FG1 Frank Gambale Signature Model
Fusion guitarist extraordinaire Frank Gambale teamed up with Carvin for his new signature model, which features a custom FG22N neck pickup that Gambale helped design, as well as a C22B pickup in the bridge position.
I am a sucker for small-bodied acoustics, and this Eastman caught my eye. It has an Adirondack spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and a wide ebony fretboard that’s great for fingerstyle players. The slotted headstock is a nice old-school touch, too.
