Summer NAMM 2021 has come and gone! Needless to say things were a bit different with this being the first NAMM since the world went into lockdown in 2020. What a trip to reflect on a year of woodshedding that brought us to this point as people and as an industry.
In the last 18 months we have launched a new website with merch, grown our staff with some amazing people, decked out our shop for retail (coming soon!), released our three fully polished aluminum aftermarket necks, a new version of our Nebula Guitar with a polished aluminum neck, our Orion Series Guitars which included our first aluminum neck bass guitar and started down the path to bringing the original aluminum guitar brand, Veleno Guitars, back to life. More on Veleno to come!
Yes, that is a lot and we are humbled and proud that so many people got to experience our efforts last week at NAMM. We met some of the finest artists, technicians, builders and genuine humans we have had the pleasure of speaking with. The acknowledgment of what we have been building was widespread and for that we are so grateful. Many of us found ourselves living in an echo chamber this past year and it was truly a breath of fresh air to hear and see many of you share our sentiments.
We made music, we made friends. We made connections that will last a lifetime. Thanks to all of you who came to see us, it was a real reminder that we push our boundaries of design, engineering and sanity, only to connect with each other, ourselves and this existence. That is a worthwhile mission and we couldn't do it without you.
Until we meet again, cheers!
