AROUND THE GROUNDS WITH MUSIC RETAIL

As Australia enters the 2020 summer and festive season and we accustom ourselves to covid-normal live music situations, it’s comforting to know that our hard working music retail stores have got our gear needs covered and are welcoming us with open arms. As we ramp up to the holiday period, we’ll take a look at what’s going down in music stores across the country with our regular Around The Grounds reports. Let’s take a look at what’s happening so far this week.

A fitting place to begin our Around The Grounds coverage is to head to Brisbane’s Gabba, home of the 2020 AFL season! Nearby of course is the legendary store The Guitar Centre (at the Gabba). Among many great products, this week The Guitar Centre have been plugging their Fender range. On social media they guys have been promoting this gorgeous Fender American Professional II Strat in Miami Blue, as well as some great Fender acoustic guitars that they have in stock.

The Bass Centre in South Melbourne has been one of the most active stores on social media right throughout the lockdown. Now that we’re out, they’re rockin’ the new limited edition K5LTD Fieldy Signature Electric Bass this week, featuring Fluorescent Green Matte finish set off by DR neon pink coated strings, tough and durable 5-piece maple/walnut neck, and the Jatoba fretboard which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end. A Vari-mid EQ with sweepable midrange allows you to dial in various bass sound, including Fieldy’s preference of no midrange at all.
