Winter NAMM 2008
(Anaheim, Jan. 17-20)


Our booth got a bit of an overhaul this year, as we added two video monitors that ran slide shows of our products and artists. The content of the slide shows enabled us to unclutter our picture gallery considerably. To soften the hi-tech look of the monitors, we added some greenery. We were pretty happy with the new look.

Some things never change, and thankfully one of those is my long-time partner Dave Coontz.

Musikmesse Frankfurt 2008
(March 12-15, Frankfurt, Germany)

I did not personally attend Frankfurt 2008, simply because there was so much going on here at home that my place was here. Best regards to all of my friends who I missed seeing at Musikmesse. But our show was in the capable hands of sales manager Gary Mobley, who had many productive meetings and (I hope) had some fun, too.


Looks like the capo is eating Gary's head, like Pac-Man.

We sponsored Richard Gilewitz for performances on Musikmesse's Acoustic Stage. It was Richard's first trip to Frankfurt; hopefully the first of many.

Our Friday night event
Again we were proud to present the incredible John Jorgenson and his quintet in concert.
The venue was especially elegant: Nashville's historic Hermitage Hotel. Its lobby and ballroom are beautiful,
and provided the perfect setting for this evening of fantastic acoustic music.
