Guitar, Improvisation

First Music From A New Guitar

Here’s the birth story of the new guitar you’ll see me playing on my YouTube channel where I started posting improvisations this year.

7/1/2021 I got on a waiting list for a new guitar, a hollow steel-body electric called a “Mulecaster.” It’s made by Mule Resophonic Guitars in Saginaw, Michigan and I’m a fan of their stuff.

8/29/2022 I confirmed the specs: a double cutaway, with a steel pickguard, a hipshot bender installed, and baritone strings. Different from anything I have.

  1. Hi Brian! Yes, it’s like a B-Bender but also lets you bend the G and A string with separate levers. Hipshot is the name of the company that makes it. I’ve barely done anything with mine yet but am really excited to play with it. Video at the end of the post is a first attempt to record this guitar (but not using the bender just yet). Talk to you soon!
