Martin SC-13E

NAMM 2020 – New Martin Guitars SC-13E

We started Friday morning over at the Martin Guitar booth and were a bit blown away with their new SC-13E model.

It’s basically a new dovetail-esque neck that’s removable via a couple of bolts … Continue reading NAMM 2020 – New Martin Guitars SC-13E

Stringjoy

NAMM 2020 – Stringjoy Broadways – Nickel Strings

Cool new vintage-inspired strings from our friends at @stringjoy strings!

NAMM2020 – Greer Amps – Royal Velvet Class-A British Drive & Pre

We’ve been fans of Greer Amps for what seems like forever, and this new Royal Velvet Class-A British Drive & Pre is like a Vox in a box, combined with a Greer Thunderbolt30. As the Soma63 is to a Fender Brown Concert, the Royal Velvet is to an AC30.
