DJs, Guitars and Dave Mustaine of Megadeth at NAMM Day 1
If you have ever felt overwhelmed by stepping into a music store like Sam Ash or Guitar Center, then NAMM, the massive music trade show that kicked off Thursday at the Anaheim Convention Convention Center and runs through Sunday, is not for you.
Some of the things that caught my eye was a reissue '59 modified Danelectro guitar that Jimmy Page apparently used for "Kashmir" and a '59 psychedelic Danelectro that Eric Clapton used. My mind was blown though when I saw a double neck custom Fender Jazzmaster/Bass VI. The chance to channel both Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine and Robert Smith of the Cure in one fell swoop?! I will take two.
