    So who’s going, what are the rumors, what are the new products, what do you want to see etc?


    I thought it’d be cool to have one big thread where we could post all NAMM news and related product launches etc. Make it easy for us all to get the scoop, and eventually links for new products...

    I see Mark Bartel (of Tone King fame) is going with his new line of amps. I've been following on Facebook and the build quality looks through the roof... as well as the price! Would still love to hear one in person though. He's using power scaling.

    I heard through the grapevine (les paul forums) that Gibson will not be at NAMM this year

    I'll be excited to see if any new things are coming with the Streamliner series. Guessing it'll probably just be new colors, though.

    Ya'll want some vid or pics of anything just PM me. I'll be happy to get for you. I'll be in So Cal for 5 days, 3 of them trolling NAMM. I have a couple booth performances and many visits to friends and companies I work with, generally lot's of down time at NAMM during the day if you aren't working a booth. Gibson is indeed a no-show this year but a couple of cool 2018 Gibsons models will show up in the market place after NAMM I want to check out. And if any of ya'll are interested in live NAMM music, Ill be gigging Thursday Jan 25th in Burbank with Tommy Harkenrider and Gretsch guitar ace Paul Pigat. Also Sat Jan 27th, the Grez clinic this year with the same dynamic duo and Saturday night at the Kid Ramos jam. Should get plenty of vid and plenty of fun! Feel free to hit me up, happy to be a fly on the wall for you. Cheers, RG - Here's a couple of cool flyers for Saturday.

    BTW, I am going under the Carr artist banner this year but Carr won't be showing. When they do...they always share a booth with Reverend, so you can count on seeing Carr amps at the Reverend booth generally. I'll be stopping by to plug in and or listen /ogle to the new offerings either way. Greg Koch can be counted on to demo Reverend stuff at NAMM. That in itself is enough entertainment for the whole show! I'll try to pop in here and report if I can -

    I’d still like to see them overall the Electro Jet range like they did with the 5420s. Love to see an Electro Jet with single coils too!

    I'd love to see Gretsch come out with a new 'low end' Dearmond type single coil pickup in the Electromatic range. I don't think they will because it would potentially detract from Pro-line sales if it was a success.

    New two colour finishes from the 50s car schemes would be nice.
