Featured Amplifier is a limited edition Gretsch Executive.
These were re-issued amplifiers in the earlier 2000s, featuring three models, The Variety, The Playboy, and The Executive.
Pictured is The Executive, the premium boutique version, built by Victoria Amplifier Company, based out of Chicago.
The Executive features tube-driven reverb, terrific tremolo, a 15-inch speaker, and 20 watts.
Both the Executive and The Playboy have been used by The Mystix on stage and in the studio. The retro look and superb sound, and limited numbers, make these amplifiers highly sought after.
The two guitars shown are from the modern-day Guild USA California factory. The maple arch back acoustic on the left (F55) is one of Jo & Bobby’s go-to Guitars in the studio.
The Big 12 string is one of the 1st of the F512 models built by the new Guild group and is Jo’s personal favorite on stage and off.

Although Goya is a Swedish acoustic guitar builder, the Goya electrics were typically built in Italy. This particular Rangemaster model has a massive variety of, shall we say, strange tones? Listen closely; you will hear that it has the sound of the Spaghetti Western. Considered to be one of the guitars used in the making of soundtracks, as it had a plethora of sounds from the unbelievably numerous switches, buttons, etc.
This particular guitar was a gift to me from The Duke and the Drivers.
It’s been completely gone over, and every darn switch button, bell, buzz button, etc., is in complete working order. Built sometime in the mid to late 60s to early 70s - many models came without build numbers that make it difficult to trace the exact year it was built.
And while I love this guitar, I would be afraid to take it on the road. It’s strictly a collector piece with studio possibilities.

The Mystix - Rattled
#rattled #themystix #themystixband #guitarmusician #shakerattleandroll
1934 #kalamazoo , manufactured by the #Gibson #guitar company as an answer to the depression. In the day, these models sold from $10 to $15. This particular model shown from the Mystix collection is of the higher-end $15 Kalamazoo Senior, built sometime in the early to mid ’30s.
Kalamazoo guitars were widely used, particularly by the Delta bluesman and early country pickers. Their playability, price, and quite remarkable unique sound, as a result of the less expensive ladder
bracing construction became sought after.
It is widely believed that many of the great blues artists used the Kalamazoo, allegedly among them Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Son House.
Today some of the top luthiers are building replicas of these early guitars, with models going now selling for thousands.

Jo always had a strong Latin rhythm in his mind when he wrote Another Kind of Love in the early 2000s. The track was shelved for a few years while Jo ironed out club material. The track found life when Bobby and Jo formed The Mystix and started gigging steadily. Playing beside them were Marty Richards on drums, Marty Ballou on the bass, and Tom West hammering the keyboards. We knew that the track was clicking from working the club scene and chose to record it at Bobby’s studio in Saugus on all analog equipment. Although the band has not performed this particular tune in some time, Jo thinks it might be time to bring it back to our live venues.
All the best,
Jo Lily (Vocals, Writer)
