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

Washburn Guitars' new Woodline series is probably the best-sounding affordable line of acoustics we've heard so far at NAMM. They range from $299-$399 street, and the higher-end WL020SCE shown here features a solid Sitka spruce top, laminated rosewood sides and back, Graphtech Nubone nut and saddle, and Fishman Isys+ electronics.
