I was hit by a parked car, what's your excuse?

I think lot's on manufactures will be there. At least that's a rumor I heard.
I did see those. The SG Original looks really great. I was hoping for white though (red is probably my least favorite guitar color). I may just snag the white 61 RI and find a used Maestro to slap on it. Cheating of course.OP - The new standard SG now looks like the 61RI (small guard), and they are coming out with a standard with maestro. I think they are calling it "The Original."
OK, what's up with the surf green Strat? I'm a sucker for a '70s headstock.
signed on for this !Fano guitars are showing their new GF6 and GF4 model. Looks like a cross between a Starcaster and a Les Paul signature, looks pretty sweet.
From what I understand after talking about it quite a bit with my old boss, is yes and no. Some of the limited models and things like such you can buy right there. You can't take them home with you of course (maybe a guitar, you can't really fly an amp home). If you sign or renew a contract as a dealer of something they're more prone to sell you something.For me the the biggest fact about NAMM is that after years of lusting for it, I am finally getting to go!
Not sure what to expect, but I know I won't be disappointed.
Question: I attend a lot of trade shows in my wife's industry, and if you are there on the last day it is possible to score a lot of sample items that the vendors just don't want to ship back.
Does that ever apply at NAMM? I can only go on either Sat or Sun, so I am thinking about Sunday.
Well said!My guess is that there'll be lots of high quality tribute-replicas, by outstanding luthiers, of whom I've never heard of, sporting a brand name I've never heard of, that'll likely not be found at any store within a 500 mile radius from where I live, with a price-point that is roughly the same as the original version would cost. And I'll no doubt read countless rave reviews and threads on the gear page by guys who swear by the stellar craftsmanship of these instruments and make me feel inferior because of the Fenders and Gibsons I play.
