The great Summer gathering that is Summer NAMM has concluded for the year! The vibrant host city, Nashville, TN, delivered once again as being the perfect locale. We had a great spot in the beautiful Music City Center-right next to our pals at TV Jones (they introduced a new Strat set BTW–check it out)! 2016 saw the return of many exhibitors including Fender and Gretsch Guitars! Each year this event grows and blossoms into an even more incredible event. As has been the case in previous years, 2016 also included a special ‘Music Industry Day’ which was open to the public. An incredible opportunity to see the inner workings and new gear of the music industry–perfect for Music City! In addition to being able to check out all of the new products hitting the market in the coming months, guests we able to attend workshops and seminars to increase their knowledge. On our end, we had wonderful time talking to folks about our entire product line and the amazing heritage and legacy of the Bigsby name. We can’t thank everyone enough for their support and we look forward to seeing you next time!

We’ve all experienced that sinking feeling in our bellies when we hear about a musicians gear being stolen. Far too many of us have personal stories along the same lines and rarely does the story end happily. Jimmy Page recently experienced one of the rare happy endings–albeit he had to wait 46 years! Page’s 1960 Black Beauty–which was equipped with a B7 vibrato–was stolen from an airport while on tour in April of 1970. Not many details have been released yet, but it is rumored that Page was reunited with the guitar back in early 2016 with the help of legendary collector and gent Perry Margouleff. While there too many photos of the instrument available, a few are shown below along with film of Led Zeppelin performing at the Royal Albert Hall. Not only does Page demonstrate his mastery of Bigsby, he does while paying homage to another hero in the Bigsby world: Mr. Eddie Cochran! Enjoy!
