You're very welcome. Thanks for looking. I hope that this thread and the pictures and comments gives you guys a "feel" of what it's like to go to a NAMM show, as well as a few of the things that I found particularly interesting. While its literally impossible for any one person - or even a dozen people - to see and hear everything at NAMM, I really try to grab the stuff that interests me, and hopefully that will interest some of you too. While I do have to stop and discuss business occasionally (arranging for gear reviews and so forth) and get demonstrations, I try to keep moving and grab as much as I can; that way, you guys can scroll through the thread and, via the pictures, kind of "walk through" the NAMM show yourself - or at least parts of it. While the sheer volume of pictures prevents me from giving you a full description of each and every item, hopefully if something grabs YOUR eye, there's enough info there that you can do a Google search and go to the manufacturer's website to get the details. Of course, if you have any questions about anything, I am here and will do my best to try to answer them. And finally, if I missed something that you wanted to see, my humble apologies.
Great job as always Phil. Thanks for the pics.

Orange had some nice amps on display too, and not just the "computer in an amp style case" Orange OPC

The frets and saddles are made out of glass. It's supposed to be quite durable and wear resistant, and increase sustain. The sustain seemed to be pretty darned good on the guitar that he demoed for me, and when I played it, it seemed to be a nice guitar - I thought the neck was a bit large for my personal preferences, but I have fairly small hands.
Thanks a ton Phil. Any thing you can say about these?

I don't think all of the 650 models are currently in production. Unless I'm mistaken, those are Model 650C Colorados, which I believe are still being made.
Does this mean the 650 series is back in production?
