    Hi,

    Among the 200+ pictures there are some very nice guitars that I found at NAMM. Bill Asher, Chris Kroenlein and Tom Anderson are just a few that supplied excellent guitar and good conversation and some nice insight in their design philosophies.

    Don't miss Bill Asher explaining his T-Deluxe in the infamous Hall E Crawl video.



    Hope you'll enjoy it!

    Very nicely done Mats.

    I especially appreciated your coverage of the Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin.

    Some fantastic guitars were brought to my attention!

    Email coming your way.

    Thanks so much for sharing your trip to NAMM. It's like being there with out the crowds and loud noise. Very cool!

    Nice reporting, sometimes the backround noise is a bit much,lol! One thing about Asher Tele. I thought those were Peter Biltoft Vintage Vibe Pickups designed. Maybe these are different? Thanks for the video!

    The basement at NAMM is the best place of all!

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm especially glad I managed to convey the feeling of being there. Disnelyland and Disney's Califoria Adventure is just across the street but for a self confessed guitar nerd like myself, NAMM beats that every day of the week. If you have a chance to go, do it!

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Thanks for all the insight and perspective!

    re: Rickenbacker and the land that time forgot... :rotflmao

    As a Ric user (my primary guitars) and fanboi, I'm happy that Ric stays true (and close) to their original designs. AFAIK (outside looking in and speculating), they are always operating at full capacity, and are always selling well. Though I wish toasters were an option on some models...

    I dig modern digital modeling, FRFR, IR and technology, but when it comes to guitars, I prefer traditional Rics (and Steinbergers)...

    ...was Carvin at NAMM, with the new Kiesel Vader models?

    Glad you picked up that the comment was a "tounge in cheek" sort of thing.

    I thnk Carvin was at NAMM but I really never pay them any attention for the simple reason we never see them in Europe and the ads I see does not entice me to visit.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Jostein!

    I was surprised at how many people I missed this year at NAMM. Shame to miss people when NAMM is really the only place where we all seem to congreate.

    Cheers,

    Indeed!
    It is such a huge place with so many people though. Easy to get lost.
