Kristyn Chapman is guitarist with Team Tremolo and Cartwheel. She will next play with the latter band at Kirby’s Beer Store on January 12, 2018.

“I just picked up a Fender Jaguar Pro. It’s a new series of Jaguars that have a maple fretboard. I just loved the way it sounded and I really wanted something I could just pick up and play and be confident about the tone and not have to think about changing out the pickups or whatever. I just wanted to be comfortable playing.

Part of the reason I picked up the new guitar was that I wanted to have something that felt like it was for this time and this era of my playing. I felt like holding onto the old guitars had a lot of old patterns and old insecurities in it that I didn’t want to have anymore.

I very much like having what you need for the time that you need it. When it’s time to let something go, I think it’s good to let it go and replace it with something else.”
