Winter NAMM: Day 2

This mandolin from Eastman (model DGM2) has a slight different body style than the usual “A” style (perhaps this is the A+), but still maintains a vintage vibe.

It was another cloudy day with showers in So. Cal this morning as NAMM kicked into second gear.  The general mood was spirited despite the weather, which also had bouts of sunny optimism…and, it was easy to find some gear that could put a smile on your face.

Tomorrow we’ll spotlight some of the wacky, and some of the practical…and some gear that is both wacky and practical.

Gretsch announced a few new products that feature a center block, such as this 16” version of the White Falcon. These thinline guitars have a block of pine that extends from the neck block to the tail pin, as pioneered by another guitar company that shall remain nameless (but also starts with a “G”).
