Tim Mahoney Touring With New Koa Guitar!
Posted Jul 21, 2015
This year Tim Mahoney and 311 are celebrating their 25th Anniversary as a band! All five members grew up in the 70’s in Omaha, Nebraska. While jamming growing up, they realized they had a special musical chemistry. Since their humble origins in the midwest, 311 has grown into a household name, touring the world and releasing 11 studio albums. For this year’s tour, Tim is rocking something different, a Private Stock built Koa guitar! The axe is based off of Tim’s favorite model, the Standard 24, and features a Hawaiian Koa top and mahogany back. Tim's new guitar also features this unique headstock inlay. You can see the guitar in action this year on the band's summer tour: http://www.311.com/shows311 Check out this interview of Paul Reed Smith and Tim Mahoney discussing their history, including the story of Tim’s first PRS that he picked up in 1993 - a Cherry Sunburst CE.
311 is also commemorating their 25th Anniversary by releasing a box set called "311 - Archive." The four-disc 81 track compilation features unreleased songs, b-sides, bonus tracks, pre-production recordings, alternate versions & demos! The 311 - Archive also comes with a 60-page book filled with rare photos, flyers, memorabilia, and artifacts from the bands personal collection.
