Tim Bauer           

 

Tim started his musical journey at a young age. At 10 years old Timís dad made him join the grade school
marching band. Tim chose the saxophone and it seemed to be a good fit, he continued in the grade school
band until the 8th grade. After starting high school Tim wanted to continue to challenge himself and joined the jazz band.

It was during Timís high school days that he started to hear artists such as Jimmi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton. It was Timís Dad that got everything started with the blues, Tom said, ďWell if you like Jimmi Hendrix and guys like that why donít you listen to this and see what you think.Ē The CD was Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, Texas Flood.

It wasnít a week later Tim put the saxophone away and picked up a used guitar and taught himself to play guitar. 

Tim gets his tone from a 1968 Fender Super Reverb, a Vox AC-15, and a Ampeg Reverb Rocket. He loves the tone and quality of G & L Guitars, and has several choices including an ASAT simi-hollow body, a S-500. and a 1972 Fender Thinline Tele Re-Issue. When he needs that little extra to get to "11", the hot rodded PRS with 1959 Gibson Les Paul pickups does just fine. Reminds him of the movie lines.

 "Listen to that sustain."
 "But it's not plugged in."
 "Yes, but if it was, you could stike a note, set her down, grab a bite, come back, and
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......she'd still be singing."
