Trip took to L.A. a couple weeks ago.
Bernie Rico Jr. at his shop in Hesperia, CA. We spent the day going through dozens of tops, body woods, necks, and fingerboards. From an exotic quilted walnut or cocobolo, to more popular types of maple and mahogany, Bernie has any tone-wood you can think of. I couldn't believe my eyes looking through the tops, the quality of the pieces were in another level of beauty and symmetry.
NAMM convention in Anaheim, CA.
I stepped in for a set with The Letter Black at the Slidebar for a benefit show for Deftone's bassist Chi Cheng.
