And am I the only one underwhelmed?  Seems they're all just copying each other every year now.  Tons of HSS superstrats.   And PRS in particular was very underwhelming - a 3 hour event with Mayer headlining to announce a new paint job.  Sheesh.

Yeah, I haven’t heard of anything that got my panties moist.

Yup. Same. <yawn>

I did see this Jackson that I want oh-so-badly but for the fact that it's overpriced for a basswood and FRT1000 equipped  axe. 🙄

Fender has released a 68 VibroChamp for $749....that looks cool, but I can have Lil Dawg make a hand wired head for under $600....

I have been playing through the same '68 Vibro-Champ since 1977.  

The sandblasted ash look has been around for a while, but it seems like it is being pushed a lot more now.  Maybe it is just Charvel, but that finish is on their Strats for their new releases.  

I am not thrilled with most new signature models.  A Gilmour Martin?

I rarely buy 'new' anymore, so it doesn't really matter that much to me.  If I do see something I like, then I do a web search for reviews, and look for a used one, whatever that item is.

Ibanez has a semi hollow and a jazzbox that look pretty nice.
 

Then there’s the bargain-priced ($499.99!) Duncan pre-wired, Bonamassa pickguard. Who the hell is buying these things?

Every NAMM time, I just wonder if there's something Joe won't endorse or sell.
