My Shishkov DC Custom & Gravelin pickups demo

Recommended Posts

This was a long time in the making. Numerous health problems set me back something awful (my recent health has been a heck of a lot better FWIW).

Crazy good guitar... the neck and hand blended heel are really something special. The carving, inlays and finish alone are works of art... and the pickups?!? Josh is a genius.

Gravelin pickups are every bit as good as anything that comes out of the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. The man has a deep knowledge of nearly every make and model of pickup that has been released since Seth Lover's patent.

Mike's finish has so much depth to it, that one can almost get lost in it's virtually bottomless expanse.

No covers, all the music is original... that said, I did include a sort of interpretation of the jazz standard "Misty" but the guitar arrangement is all my own.

That's a really good video, from the choice of black clothes to the lighting to the fact you didn't do all high-gain, and really did a lot of different things that highlight the sound of the guitar.

Very nicely done, Geoff!   Very impressive playing, and nice compositions.  You show off the guitar and the pickups awfully well.

I agree with polara that not going with super high gain really does make a big difference in being able to hear the tonal differences in the pickups and guitar. 

You make me want to buy one of everything!

I would put that Image at 8 Minutes on the next Run of T Shirts and I'll take 5! 

Great Job, makes me want to order another one!

Glad to hear your health has improved.  The video is great.  But, like seeing Jeff Beck, I want to sell all my shit and just leave the guitar playin' to guys like you!

A most excellent production in every way. 

 

In. Every. Way.

You definitely should be doing this for a living, Zen....best in the biz. Just like Shishkov.

Oh, And I second Bubs recommendation for the T-shirt idea based upon the image at 8 minutes.

Missed these videos all year. Eventually, it showed up last minute. What a showcase - guitar, pickups, sound, directorship and profession!

Your videos rule the genre!

Very very impressive playing. I'll second the comments about showcasing the tones from the pups.  The video does a great job showcasing the aesthetics of that DC design and how the woods/finish all come together to make a beautiful instrument.  Well done all around.

Geoff, great video.  I like that you have some retro graphics there too.  Very cool.  I've always loved the variety of sound you put in your videos.   Glad your health is good.  Will be looking forward to more of these!

VERY IMPRESSIVE, My Shishkov has never sounded that good and it certainly is the player not the guitar!!

As always Zen, you are the master of the demo vid, and with a world class guitar as click bait, I'm in.  Also very glad to hear your health is on the upswing.  To a better 2019, for all of us.
