Winter NAMM SHOW 2010 was GREAT !
Our first NAMM SHOW, and now history. Our guitars were welcomed with great excitement, by the tuffest pros in the business. The guys who know the most about guitars, where there to touch and feel them. Hands on, plugged in and everyone was smiling. Everyone was impressed with the look of our guitars, but the real pros seemed a little surprised when they played them, and couldn't find anything wrong with them. And then well, didn't want to put them down. And then" WOW ! this is f_-kin' Great" ! "Wish my bla bla played like this". No you can't make this stuff up. Great players were bringing their friends back the next day, and great music was played by all.
By the second day people were showing up, saying they had to come to see what everybody is talking about. The buzz got louder each day until on the last day we had constant jammin' going on. :)
Thanks to all the great players who performed at the booth.
