October 2015 MSM News
It's beginning to properly feel like Fall here in Downtown Lawrence. We've been busting out our Mass Street hoodies in preparation for the cool weather ahead. Now's the time to stop by and gear up before hibernating at home sounds like a good option!
We've got a jam packed update this month including a Repair Spotlight showcasing a custom pickup install in a Mustang Bass. You have to see the results of this mod to believe it! We also have a really great addition to our Behind the Bench demo series featuring FOUR Collings OM1s intercut playing the same song. This is a great way for you to analyze the differences in materials and construction of these guitars. Even more events are on the way, with a fantastic Recording Clinic and a special Eastman Roadshow here at the store. And as always we have a fresh batch of Staff Picks for you to enjoy!
It was such an honor, and honestly a blast, to have Roland & Diane here at the store for the Mando clinic. Nothing beats getting first hand instruction from a legend. Thanks to everyone who packed the clinic!

The turnout for the Gypsy Jazz Workshop was fantastic! Seems like we have a regular Hot Club of Mass Street brewing here at the store. Keep an eye out for a third installment in the series after the New Year!

It feels like this past month has been one big musicians hangout here at the store. With the folks from Hot Rize stopping by last week including Tim O'Brien, Nick Forster and Bryan Sutton, along with Danny Cox coming by just this afternoon, it's been hub of activity here at the store!
Check out Tim O'Brien playing Boss Jim's vintage J-35 last week!
