Our first look from Nashville

Nashville, TN (June 19, 2008) -- This year''s Summer NAMM show in Nashville kicks off Friday but we have an early report to bring you -- check out the World''s Largest Pedalboard. Revealed at Gear Trap''s party Wednesday night, this sucker is loaded with nearly 150 pedals. Plenty of folks were on hand to witness this bohemoth in action and even fire it up themselves. The evening''s festivities also included giveaways, a silent auction and live music.

Keep checking back for regular updates from NAMM as the show goes on.
