I had a great time at NAMM. Saw great music - Scott Henderson Trio and saw Kirk Fletcher, Josh Smith, Mark Lettieri, Matt Schofield and many killer jazz players too. It's so awesome to be there every year. The gear is just gear - I'm getting less interested every year... I go mostly for the people and the players.

What did I like the most regarding gear? Hard to say. I actually really liked the Frank Gambaly acoustic by Cort. It's very nice guitar for not a lot of money. The Xotic strats are super cool. Some nice Ibanez semi-hollow body, and the Eastman jazz guitars are sweet. The Lunastone Overdrive is stellar, the pedals from Vertex Effects are nice, and the Friedman Runt 50 is very sweet.

So I took some photos with my phone only, and I've been posting them on Instagram. I just didn't feel like hauling around my DSLR and go through all the work to edit and share like I did last year. So, with that said, you can go look at the photos I took on my Instagram page.

You DON'T need to have an Instagram account to see the photos.

Here they are - NAMM 2017 Photos

I hope you dig it.

Great pics. Thanks for sharing. So why did you buy all three of the relic'd strats?:)

Nice pics, Robert. Awful cold in southern Cali though, by the looks of that first pic.

Nobody sponsored me in. I just bought an Educator's pass.
In the early 80s, my boss (owned the music store) went down every year. At the time, you had to have some sort of music business credentials to get in. I assume that is still the case? I would also think 'music business credentials' isn't that hard to obtain, by the looks of the crowds.

I'd love to go to one of these without all the riff-raff. But, to be honest, I am that riff-raff. LOL
