Returning to the spectacular Music City Center, Summer NAMM 2017 was incredible! As the music industry gathered it was easy to see why Nashville is also known as Music City.  While the summer show is certainly smaller than winter (in Anaheim, CA) there was no shortage of great new products as well as long loved essentials. 2017  was a real hoot! Part of the fun of these shows is get together with friends and, and as such we loved shared space with our pals at TV Jones,! Their B12’d Spectra Sonic Supreme is absolutely incredible! Additionally, there was tons of other great products all around the show–many new this year!–that feature our vibratos.  Be sure to check out more from our gallery from the show HERE to see more.  As always, we had a great time and our sincere thanks to everyone who stopped by! Music Industry Day was a great success and we thank you all for that too! See you next time!

We can thank them enough! Check out the short clip below for a taste.

We always love checking out all of the great guitars and talking with the builders that use Bigsby vibratos, but we’d love also love to hear and see your photos from the Musikmesse of your favorite Bigsby equipped guitars.

Gretsch Guitars start using Bigsby Vibratos

What? Of course Gretsch Guitars use Bigsby vibratos; they are almost ubiquitous on Gretsch. What gives? At the 2017 NAMM Show, Gretsch Guitars introduced a number of new models that utilize our B7 vibrato (previously most models used our B6 or B3).  With the new Player’s Edition and Broadcaster range, these B7’d models expand the range, versatility and sonic landscape of ‘That Great Gretsch Sound”. As the B7 vibrato features a tension bar (which increases the break angle between the tailpiece and bridge), the feel is different than other Gretsch models which utilize our B6.  The increased break angle can be a benefit to those players that enjoy a ‘tighter’ feeling action, are heavy strummers, thumb-pickers, or aggressive high energy folks.  In any situation, we think it is a great addition to their line and enjoyed seeing these at NAMM.  Check out the video below that Guitar Center did featuring the line:

And from Anderton’s here (covers the full line of Gretsch, not just the Centerblocks):

Tons of great information in these videos—time to go out guitar shopping! Very cool stuff from Gretsch!

You can check out the new products from Gretsch HERE.
