In a post on the Greyboy Allstars social media pages, Elgin Park shared some notes on the guitar equipment used on the album’s recordings. Read the entire post from Elgin below:
#comodeallstars record release day today. I had to bust out the guitars that were the mainstays of the GBA live progression. Starting with the 65 fender jazz master played throughout the days from the very beginning. Those who came to the green circle would know. Around 95’ DJ Greyboy found the 1967 x175 guild in Florida and we had it shipped out to California. We played that all the way through but additionally I found the 1964 Gibson es175 in Austin and play it mostly. Feeling a lot of gratitude for being able to interact with and be educated by these monster players for over 25 years. This is our 6th album and it’s quick and dirty. So many roads have broken off from this band for me and everyone involved. Enjoy the record and be safe out there this #4thofjuly
