Jagermeister Schecter

The Jagermeister Schecter

What every guitarist needs, a Jagermeister guitar. I believe this was a custom job that Schecter made up as a give-away at the NAMM show. Did I enter the contest? Of course. Do I play guitar? No, but I can learn.

Roscoe marble finish

Roscoe Guitars

Roscoe makes some some very nice bases but what really caught my eye was this custom marble finish. It looked so real that I had to pick it up and see if it was made of real marble.

For those of you with multiple guitars here's a new stand that's really pretty inexpensive. It's made of aluminum tubes covered with nice cushy foam. It folds up at the base and will hold seven guitars. They also had another model there that hold three guitars.

Norton Guitars

I saw the Norton Guitars at last years NAMM show and they were back and are now shipping. They feature a metal frame that the pickups mount on. This allows you to slide the pickups to any position you like. As you can see in the image at the lower right there are RCA jacks on the back of the pickup housings. You can take the output from there and plug it directly in somewhere else. This rail system is also cool in that in about two minutes you take remove one and put on a totally different pickup.

Emery Sound

What you see here is a 13 pound class A tube amplifier with a solid mahogany face. All the amps come with this cool Plexiglas cabinet so you can see the tube glow in all their glory.

Grinch guitar

The Grinch Guitar

Although this is probably a custom job built to attack people doing web pages about odd things found at the NAMM show I still think it rocks.

The Rock Slide

Here's a new twist on the guitar slide. It's made of solid brass and have a little cutout so that the slide doesn't pinch at the knuckle. The wall of the slide also get thicker at the other end so you've got more mass. There are sizes for everyone.

The Souba Acryle

What would an edition of the NAMM Oddities be without an acrylic guitar? This years entry sports a sleek Steinberger-like body.

This kid drew quite a crowd at the Dunlop booth. He blew me away with the way he could rip on the Hendrix tunes I heard him play.


Make sure you check out the Goodies section and the
