What was your first piece of music gear and how old were you?
Guitarist Matthew Wilkson: Trumpet at 10. I did play it constantly until I got my first guitar at 11, and was more drawn to it. My guitar was a Yamaha FG-401 acoustic, and I still use it daily.
Bassist Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez: When I was 11 my parents bought me an acoustic guitar. After a while I realized I liked the bass a lot more so when I was 13, I was given a replica of Paul McCartney’s Hofner bassthat my brother had given my dad. I thought it looked so cool because the shape was modeled after a violin and Paul had one just like it, except his was a lefty. I played it here and there but it wasn’t until I got my Fender Jazz Bass a year later that I started playing all the time.
Guitarist Marcos Smith: Epiphone classical guitar. When I first got it I played it alllllllllllll the time. I wish I still had that much time to practice.-
