The Music Zoo Visits Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll at The Met
When it was announced that a new exhibit was coming to The Metropolitan Museum of Art which contained legendary guitars used by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and more...we knew guitar freaks such as ourselves had to take a trip to the Upper East Side! If not for ourselves, but to share with you some pictures of the guitars if you're not able to come and see them in person!
An Ultimate Relic Spotted at The Super Bowl
As guitar players, do you ever see gear on TV or in movies and recognize the model or maybe a specific color and think "great choice!" We sure do...and watching the big game last night, a couple of Music Zoo staff members eyes popped out of our heads when we recognized a Jason Smith Ultimate Relic '60 Stratocaster - a guitar that Adam Levine bought here back in 2012!
New for 2019 Gibson Custom Shop Brian Ray Signature SG
The Music Zoo got a chance to talk with a certified Beatle if you ask us! Brian Ray has been a longtime member of Paul McCartneys band and has a very new and exciting signature model SG coming out in 2019 with some really great features that he goes in depth explaining in the video. Check it out!
New for 2019 Gibson Custom Shop Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess
The Music Zoo owner Tommy Colletti got a chance to talk guitars (and a bit of softball) at the Gibson 2019 unveiling event! The Dave Amato Axcess is coming out in a new "Boston Sunset Fade" finish that looks amazing! You can be sure it will be available at The Music Zoo!
Nuno Bettencourt Talks Washburn at The Music Zoo
While on the Generation Axe tour with legendary guitarists such as Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tosin Abasi and Zakk Wylde, Extreme guitarist and Washburn artist Nuno Bettencourt stopped by The Music Zoo to give us an in-depth history of his signature Washburn N4 model, and his experience in working with the guitar company from the very start of his career! The N4 is a fantastic guitar that the Music Zoo staff loves to play, and it was super cool to have the man himself in here talking about his affinity for the guitar as well!
There's never a dull moment at The Music Zoo. We were super excited to see this one of a kind Les Paul come through our doors. This is a very special Les Paul Standard that was custom-painted by artist Liz Tran for Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard as part of the 20th anniversary of VH1 Save The Music.
