Title: Mike Wanchic Launches his own Reverb Shop
Post by: sharonc on November 15, 2017, 12:38:57 pm
Hi everyone, Mike is working with Reverb to sell some of his totally cool equipment from over the years.  Check it out at 

Today, reverb launched the Official Mike Wanchic Reverb Shop, packed with guitars, amps, mics, and more that Wanchic used on countless records and tours during the last four decades. Like his classic rock pedigree might suggest, the shop is full of tasteful vintage gems.

Most of the gear youíll find in the shop was kept by Wanchic in his recently closed Echo Park Studios, where Ben Folds, Howie Day, and other artists have recorded. Outside of his guitar playing with Mellencamp, Wanchic is an accomplished producer and engineer. He told us that no matter how important to him this gear is, his real motivation in selling is to make sure that every piece that he no longer has time to play finds a new home with a loving owner.

An example would be the 1974 Gibson Les Paul Standard he has owned for 43 years. According to Wanchic, the guitar appeared on 1980ís Nothin' Matters and What If It Did, 1982ís American Fool, the associated world tours, and more. "It's a sentimental one," he said.
