J Mascis Reverb.com/Selling Guitars, Amps, Pedals, Drums (Dinosaur Jr.)
J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. has partnered with Reverb.com to help unload over one hundred pieces of gear from his personal collection. The items for sale have been used on various Dinosaur Jr. tours, in studio sessions, and on solo/other projects.
Some of the guitar highlights include a 1929 Pre-War Martin Parlor, a refined 1965 Burgundy Mist Fender Jaguar, and a 1954 Pre-Gibson Epiphone Acoustic flattop that supposedly belonged to Richard Gere at one point. There’s also a 1968 Martin D-28S that he often used in the studio and while touring in support of his solo projects.
A signature ‘69 Marshall 100W Super Tremolo with the massive 8×10 Marshall 1990 cab and a ‘70s Purple Fender Twin Reverb.
Guitar Pedal Highlights
Big Muffs and Tone Benders — the shop will also feature dozens of pedals used in the studio and on tour. You can also find a couple of odds and ends peppered into J’s official shop, like the Danelectro Baby Electric Sitar that he used on tour with Dino and a Moog MemoryMoog used on several J Mascis + The Fog albums while J was “going through [his] synth period.”
A C&C Purple Sparkle Drum set that J used while drumming for Sweet Apple. He’s also parting with a pair of Leedy and Ludwig kick drum shells that he used with his and Lou Barlow’s high school hardcore band, Deep Wound. More standout drum pieces are the ‘70s Blue Sparkle Gretsch Rack Toms that were used on Green Mind, Whatever’s Cool With Me, Where You Been, and J’s self-titled LP, which he says is his favorite record he’s ever played on.
J’s shop will launch on Tuesday, October 31st. More info at this location.
