Offset guitar expert, tech and journalist Mike Adams (@puisheen) joins us for another monthly roundup of guitar news, but this episode is about a lot more than just industry updates. Mike begins by telling a deeply moving story about the loss of his father. At about 24 minutes, we cover some of the latest guitar news, including new offerings debuting at NAMM such as the Guild Surfliner Deluxe, Martin StreetLegend D-18, T-Rex Binson Echorec, and Yamaha FG9.
We also talk about announcing a new CEO for Gibson; the secret of G. Weller; Fretboard Summit updates; the dr Herringbone “Tone Traveler” (full review follows) and more.
