Let's continue with the NAMM tour. This entry will be focused on the various stringed instrument and related booths that were attending NAMM. These booths allow us to see what products the manufacturer is going to introduce this year, and also gives us a chance to try them out, and see what the quality is like. Instruments can look great, but if they don't play well, then there's really no point in persuing them. Here are some of what I consider to be the highlights of the show, as far as booths go. Some of these are not ukulele related, but should be fun for all fans of stringed instruments. Mahalo,
