We'll all be there with brand new shirts, showpiece guitars on display, and good times.

Speaking of the NAMM show, there's a Jazz Times Magazine coming out this month with a full page Baker review of the Jazz Cat. I talked to Russel Carlson (who wrote the article) and he let me know that he wasn't too happy. . . with having to give the guitar back to us! Check it out!

Nashville NAMM Show feat. Ronnie Montrose and Lauren Ellis

Gene Baker went to Nashville and set up with Dwight from TonePros. They shared the booth and put on a jammin show Saturday Night. Lauren Ellis opened the show and really put one on! Then, her band backed Ronnie Montrose through a rockin set. The allstar jam at the end included favorites like Dean Parks, Dwight Deberoh, Rocco Marshall as well as Lauren Ellis and Ronnie Montrose. And of course our very own in-house shredder, Gene Baker. Everyone told me that the night was great for music. Good times, good times.
