It was my first time attending the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA. It was much bigger than I expected.
First stop was to see Flamenco virtuoso Pepe Fernandez at the Solera Flamenco booth. Such a young guy with incredible talent.
Then, I went upstairs to the Cordoba Guitars booth to watch Ben Woods, Juanito Pascual, and Kai Narezo perform.
I was impressed by all the guitars that Cordoba had to offer. There were a couple that really got my attention.
Cordoba 45 Limited and the 20th Anniversary models.
The 20th Anniversary
This guitar is gorgeous to look at. The details are excellent. It’s a classical guitar. The price is steep (apprx $6,000USD).
The 45 Limited
I really fell in love the look of the 45 Limited. Spruce top, ebony sides, back and headstock. A really unique looking guitar. It has a deep, warm tone to it. It’s really a classical guitar but when I get my hands on one, I’m setting it up to be a flamenco guitar.
Later, I went back downstairs to help out Elga Guitars in their booth doing demonstrations. Interesting guitar. Mainly for students, street performers, and those who live in apartments. It’s a travel-sized acoustic guitar with provisions to connect an iPhone and to use the apps for sound processing (distortion, compressor, chorus, wah, etc.)
Closed out the show with some random walking into booths.
