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

McPherson Guitars brought the lovely Maple Leaf to NAMM. It has an Engelmann spruce top, figured-maple back and sides, cocobolo fretboard, bridge, and headstock overlay, hand-cut maple-leaf inlays, and luthier Matt McPherson's unique 3-piece overpass/underpass bracing.
