First day of the show! I stopped by Strictly Seven Guitars to check out Ola Englund's new model.
Here we have Fred Brum ripping it up!
Pretty insane 9-string guitar!!
Fredrik Thordendahl (Meshuggah) stopped by and took some axes for a test drive, the booth got pretty crowded fast!(see YouTube vid at the bottom)
And Ola himself test driving his new Solar 7 axe and Fortin Satan amp, evil riffing ensues!
Later that day Ola stopped by our booth for some posing and guitar riffing (see YouTube vid at the bottom)
Then I was off to the PRS booth of course!
I met up with J Hayes, Product Manage for PRS, the gentlemen that many of the PRS product vids as well. And I just had to snap some shots of the 2012 models!
A very sweet charcoal black Studio, claaaassy!
And this Private Stock semi hollow was eye candy =)
And finally the 2012 PRS amp line up, will definitely be back to play these babies later this week! What I have heard from the Channel H sounds sweet.
On the way back to the Leqtique booth, I stumbled on a performance by the mighty Johnny Hiland performing in the Emotiva booth. (see YouTube vid at the bottom)
After the show we were supposed to get on the NAMM transit buss that goes around to all the hotels in the area for drop offs.
However, we ended up on the wrong transit, and ended up at a Holiday Inn 30 min north of Anaheim! doh!
It was all good however, a little excursion wasn't gonna kill us, and we decided to get some dinner whilst waiting on the return buss to Anaheim.
Buffalo burger! Hell yeah!!
Good end to the day. Check out the vid below to for some NAMM playing =)
Over and out!
