1 Ric12string 7 months ago The Winter NAMM Show is just around the corner, running from January 19 through 22 in Anaheim, California. I am planning on attending again this year and am quite looking forward to it.I haven't seen a theme yet for the show, but I am sure that, whatever that theme may eventually be, there are likely to be a few guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, horns, amplifiers and PA systems at the show, along with tons and tons of assorted paraphanelia to entice us.NAMM has announced that Richie Sambora and Orianthi will be performing on the outdoor stage, as well as Bernie Williams (the former Yankee star who is a classically trained guitarist), and Ronnie Spector and the Ronettes. Now that is quite an interesting lineup. And rumor has it that there will be other concerts that may be worth attending.I will be trying my best to keep Proteus' seat warm for him until he returns to NAMM to offer us his exemplary coverage again. And, while I will naturally provide lots of coverage about all things Gretsch, I will also be roaming the convention floor looking for other things of interest, and which I hope will also interest you. So, if you have been wanting to learn a little bit about a particular product, or want to see some photos of something in particular, please post up something in this thread and I will do my best, as time permits, to check it out for you.And, if you are planning on attending the NAMM Show, let me know that by posting something to that effect in this thread so that I will know to keep my eye out for you. While the daytime hours are spent wandering the halls of the Show, evenings do afford considerable time to socialize and generally hang out.I just can't quite wait to get down there!
