Everything from retro-style axes to interstellar effects and insanely powerful amps caught our eye in Nashville.

Warwick & Framus came to NAMM with a couple of 4- and 6-string hot shots. The Warwick Corvette $$ (Double Buck) has a lovely colored flamed maple top, swamp-ash back, wenge neck and fretboard, and wood-knobbed tuners, as well as passive MEC humbuckers and switchable active/passive preamp with master volume, balance, treble, and bass controls. The Framus Mayfield is made in Germany and features a mahogany semi-hollow body with center block, and Seymour Duncan P-90s.
