January 2016 MSM News
We're only a few weeks into the 2016 and it's already been a busy month here at the store. Jim's off at the National Association of Music Merchants convention this weekend checking out all the latest gear from some of our top vendors. Keep an eye on our Just In page in the coming months as we debut some gear from the likes of Martin, Taylor, JHS and more! NAMM is such a huge trade show that our friends from Analog Outfitters made the cross-country trek from Illinois to California for the event. Luckily Lawrence is on the way! Check out Matt P demoing some of the truly unique gear from Analog Outfitters. (Oh and we managed wrangle the crew into writing some Staff Picks this week as well!)
Check out Analog Outfitters repurposing of damaged Hammond B3 Organs. It's amazing!
With the holidays over it's time to get back into the swing of things with events here at the store! Speaking of swing (see what we did there?) don't miss out on the third installment of Mike H's Gypsy Jazz series. He's slowly spreading that driving rhythm through the whole store, and this will be another clinic you won't want to miss. More details about the topic coming soon, but for now head on over to the Event Page for more info.
Also, If you, or someone you know, received a guitar recently as a gift now is the perfect time to take advantage of our next Free First Guitar Lesson here at the store. Let the fantastic instructors from The Guitar Studio help you get started with what could be a lifetime passion.
We've been busy over on the blog! There's a fantastic Repair Spotlight featuring some of Boss Jim's repair work on a stunning 30s 000-45. These repairs always take a ton of work and patience, and this time around Jim documented the process for us. Check it out over this month's Repair Spotlight.
Winter is the perfect to catch up on your practicing...plenty of cold, chilly nights trapped indoors with your favorite couch guitar perfecting that killer riff.
