PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Cavey's Creations room. In this segment, we get to check out some of Cavey's (Matt Blake) Creations that include custom guitars and basses. The new company showed off two basses and one guitar. Matt "Cavey" Blake says he gets most of his design ideas from his other passion in life—hot rod cars. The guitar model is called Nailed is a 25.5" scale with an all maple body and neck with a paudak and yellow heart fretboard. It has a unique neck design in that Blake describes as "not a neck-thru and not a bolt-on, it's my version of both—it really seems to work." The Low Rider bass has Nordstrand pickups and is built on a 35" scale. Matt also built the guitar stand holding Cavey's Creations. Cavey's Creations neck design uses two different pieces of solid wood for the fretboard and neck, which is also connected to wood surrounding the pickups.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.
