MAKING DJANGO PROUD


We’re still buzzing from our time in the California sun so why not share just one more memory from NAMM 2019? We thoroughly enjoyed this quick clip featuring jazz of the gypsy swing variety.

CALIFORNIA ON MY MIND


NAMM 2019 was almost more fun than we could handle! Our shared space with Henriksen Amplifiers was the undisputed center of the jazz guitar universe for the show which made for some pretty incredible musical moments. This was one of our favorites featuring Christiaan van Hemert playing our Bambino Elite model, Diarmuid Lally on bass, Will Galison on chromatic harmonica, and our own Howard Paul on 7-string guitar (his custom 16-B).
