Lockjaw Team Update: December

The most rewarding thing about this thriving music scene that we’re a part of is meeting people who share our enthusiasm for all things live and loud. So that you can come and grab us for a chat, we thought we ought to tell you where we are!

We’ll be bringing you a monthly update from the Lockjaw Team with our recommendations, tribulations and gig schedules.

Geek Peek: Marshall from Money Left To Burn / Fat Religion

My weapon of choice is a MusicMan S.U.B. 1 Guitar HH emergenza special edition, some friends of mine won back in the days while taking part in a band contest (around 2006). Neither of them wanted to play it, so I got it stupidly cheap…lucky Marshall!!!

Geek Peek: Ryan Price from Fights & Fires

I’d always loved Les Paul double cuts. In the early 2000s when everyone was playing PRSs, the Les Paul standard double cut was a cheaper alternative (still about £1000+ but still a cheaper alternative).

I’d heard Gibson were putting out yellow double cuts for super cheap, so I saved up and got one! I loved the matt finish, it made it easier to play! The budget also meant that it had crap paint, which wears away easily, which is why it now looks older than it is!

Geek Peek – Dave Gourlay from The Affect Heuristic

I’ve been using this guitar since 2015. It was gifted to me by my best mate Judy Foster. I’d gone to the bog and when I came back, she’d ordered it for me. I’ve barely put it down since (the guitar, not the bog).

It’s the only guitar I use in all of my bands, The Affect Heuristic and No Contest.

Geek Peek: Pete Gwilt of The Wonderbeers

I’ve only ever used one guitar for The Wonder Beers – my faithful old Squire Stratocaster.

When we started the band in 2012 I had an Ibanez AX – great guitar, just not right for the punk sound we were going for so I started looking for other options. I asked around a bunch of mates if anyone had anything lying around that they weren’t using and didn’t mind me borrowing on a long term basis.

Geek Peek: Tim Kramer from Drones

Hey guys. My main axe currently is a variant of the ESP Eclipse series. Traditionally, most guitarists regard those Eclipses to be a super metal version of a Les Paul, but the one I picked up has a cool classic-meets-modern vibe.

I bought it for recording our most recent album Exiled as well as to use it for touring. Being a lefty drastically reduced my options when it came to picking a new guitar; luckily I found this rare model in Florida and had it shipped over. I love the combination of gloss white and gold hardware and it sounds mint!
