  • New product News - Summer NAMM 2018

    Unfortunately, I am not going to Nashville this year, but I update the HC News every weekday, so I get to see all the new product announcement press releases.

    If you haven't checked the HC News today, you might want to. And you might want to check it every day during the run-up to NAMM and for the duration of the show (which runs from June 28th-30th) - there's bound to be a bunch of new products announced, and as the news comes in, we'll be sure to post it.


    In the coming days I'll be posting some things that I come across that I think might be of interest in this thread. If you see anything that catches your attention - whether in the HC News, elsewhere online, or at NAMM itself - please feel to post about it too.

    I love the sound of 12 string guitars, but using a capo with one has never been easy to do... G7th has a solution that's supposed to change that...
