    Walter Becker playing a Kauer Banshee! (Firebird)

    I'm REALLY excited about this! 3 months ago word got back to me from one of my dealers that Walter Becker bought one of my 2xP90 Banshee's. Over the last couple months I'd been getting updates from his tour manager that he was starting to play it more live.

    Well, I just happened to be here in Nashville the same time as Steely Dan. So I got to go down (along with Adam Grimm from Satellite) and catch sound check, meet his tech to go over some notes for some adjustments I'll make to the guitar after the tour and the real highlight, hand out with the man himself, Walter Becker!! I ended up leaving him with an Argonaut of mine to get some feedback on (so far really great!).

    Anyways, highlight of the weekend, very cool moment for me, I just had to share!!

    Oh and seeing one of my guitars getting played live (closed the show with it for Kid Charlemagne) was cool beyond words!!!

    BTW it was this guitar


    I actually have another batch of Banshee's wrapping up soon for our dealer of them, it'll be fun working on them! :D

    A buddy just found this:
    Steely Dan - Medley, Nashville - YouTube
    ~ 8 minutes in for the encore the Banshee comes out :D
    also:
    Steely Dan - Kid Charlemagne - Live @ Ravinia Festival (8/12/11) - YouTube
    right around 2:50

    So, Walter just bought his third Kauer and his second Banshee!!



    Pretty excited :D

    congrats!

    I think is great when a top shelf player walks into a store and buys a guitar off the rack without any fuss -- He purchased it because he liked it!

    He is very partial to guitars with P90's -- Your fiddle must sound incredible.

    congrats!
