Grammy Nominee Guitarist Mike Stern talks equipment

Hey everybody…

I hope this post finds you well. It’s a late Saturday afternoon here in the DC metro area. I was surfing around YouTube and came across a “behind-the-scenes” (if you will) video of guitarist Mike Stern in a short discussion about the equipment he uses on stage. Being a guitarist also has me interested, and slightly biased :-). Interestingly enough, he plays a custom Yamaha Pacifica, which has the same body style as the legendary Fender Telecaster. Personally, I like the Pacifica better, appearance-wise, anyway. Mike is no stranger to the jazz world and has been nominated for a Grammy in the past. He brings a unique combination of jazz, blues, and rock to his style of playing and his been recognized as a world renowned guitarist for years, especially since being on the scene with Miles Davis’ comeback band in 1981. Mike Stern’s “Big Neighborhood” is nominated for Best Contemporary Jazz Album this year. Here he is, in a video from late 2008, talking gear.
