On this page you will find the players of Joe's Guitars. These are just a handful of guitar and bass players that own and play our instruments. Some have their own websites you can check out. Just click on the link by their photo.
Here's what Marc has to say about his Joe's Guitars: "Throughout the past several years I've aquired and gotten rid of many guitars. The only constant has been my Joe's guitar. It can handle any style from country to metal and is built better than most guitars that cost twice as much. I have two now, and am already looking forward to my next one."
Here is an email I recently received from Chris about his new BOA 5 string:
We are in the middle of a ridiculous amount of rehearsing for this upcoming showcase, in which we are not only playing our own set, but the band is backing 12 finalists in a singing contest. We had to learn 12 covers in a week. Brutal. Anyway, needless to say I have been doing a great deal of playing. I love that fucking bass. A buddy of mine and I were chatting last night at this benefit show (he's a bass player too by the way, expect a call from him, he's interested in having you make him a 6 string if you're up for it) and he couldn't stop raving about the tone, the feel, and the playability. This is easily the most well-balanced bass I have ever played/owned. Especially for the price. I can make her do whatever I want, bright and punchy, fat and round, and everything in between. This is without major sonic enhancement (though I do use a BBE 482, which just prevents subharmonic decay), which is especially nice. That neck, though huge, is super easy to play once you get used to it. It took me a week of solid play to make the adjustment, but now, I'm not so sure I'd want to go back and make any changes. It has enhanced my ability to navigate the fretboard, and god damn if that extra wood doesn't add to the tone. It plays super fast, and that extra string spacing has certainly improved my slapping ability. I always have a really good sense of where I am on it. In all, it's pretty rare these days to find a quality instrument made with great thought and care, and it comes across in the sound, and playability of the bass. My buddy put it best when he said, "I have this bass, and it sounds great and it's just the pickups/preamp. Anybody can do that. The wood and neck aren't really anything special. But with that bass (the Boa 5), it's passive, and that tone that you get is the instrument itself, and not anything else." In all, I am extraordinarily happy with this bass. There are times when I am playing, and all I can think is, "god this thing sounds good, I can't believe it's mine." Thanks again Justin for making this monstrosity. It was a lot of hard work, and I was a giant pain in the ass with some of my demands, but your diligence paid off. This bass is truly a work of art.
