A video visit of my guitar room / home studio, because it’s been redone since the last one, and I never took the time to show it… so here we go. In it I show some guitars, electric and acoustic, amps, pedals, recording gear, some parts on the shelf, and a bunch of computers. How geeky can one get? Apparently, plenty geeky! 🙂
So welcome to Casa Mojo.

Melancon Cajun Gentleman guitar review
Recently acquired a beautiful Melancon Cajun Gentleman built by Gerard Melancon in Louisiana. This guitar is incredible in terms of build quality, woods used and accessories. The pickups are TV Jones Filtertron and Filtertron +, and the guitar also has a Bigsby. The body is Swamp ash with a flamed maple top. The neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard… I am in love! Gear used for this video include a Dr Z Carmen Ghia and a Holy Grail reverb
Melancon Cajun Gentleman Distortion review… as requested 🙂
Gear used for this video: Melancon Cajun Gentleman ZVEX Box of Rock Dr Z Carmen Ghia EH Holy Grail
Using my Crook Tele, I am having some Minor Blues fun on a lazy Sunday afternoon… as always, I am using a Carmen Ghia amp from Dr Z, along with a ZVEX box of rock and an EH Holy Grail.
Take a Crook Custom Tele. Add a TV Jones in the neck, a Lollar 52 in the bridge. Plug that sucker into an Electro Harmonix Holy Grail reverb pedal.
Proceed to plug the afore-mentioned gear into a Dr Z Mini Z amp w/ the volume set at 1200hrs, and the attenuator at “4”.
Then go ahead and pretend you can play some blues.
yeah, it’s fun, ain’t it?
I had a little fun with my Crook Tele & Carmen Ghia head over a backing track that I created a while back. I call it “somewhat jazzy” because I don’t have the nerves to pretend I can play jazz 🙂
This guitar features Lollar and TV Jones pickups and a four-way switch.
