Mass Street Music NAMM 2017 Roundup

NAMM was a whirlwind couple of days catching up with vendors, putting faces to names and scoping out all of the new gear for 2017. This year we sent managers Josh B and Matt K to track down everything from new Academy Series Taylors to Chase Bliss Pedals or new Collings Relics. Below you’ll find a photo gallery of some of our favorite gear. Make sure and follow us on Instagram for more details about some of the great new/used gear to hit the store.

Brand new for 2017, Collings introduced this killer baritone acoustic guitar featuring all the fit and finish we adore from them
Following the baritone theme, Collings introduced a 360 model with the same tunning as the new acoustic. 
No one beats a Collings burst finish
We fell in love with this all mahogany prototype parlor guitar. Once this little guy goes into production look for it at the store
Collings is getting into the relicing game, and are making quite the statement in the process. The tasteful distressing of this new Burgundy Mist finish is stunning
