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

Seymour Duncan's new Apollo 4- and 5-string Jazz pickups ($95 each) feature parallel linear wiring to add a little oomph and definition to the J recipe while also decreasing extraneous noise. The 5- string version is available in 67/70 mm and 70/74 mm models.
