Hey Easy Music Center fans, I had the opportunity to go to the NAMM show this year. It was an honor and a privilege to represent Easy Music Center. If you ever get a chance to go, do not miss out on the opportunity. You will get to see great new products and see music legends such as George Benson.
Being an Ibanez dealer, I was afforded the opportunity to attend a semi-private demonstration with George Benson showing off his new Ibanez LGB300-VYS. This new hollow body jazz guitar by Ibanez is a true beauty. It has a rich full tone that will inspire the creativity of any guitarist. It features a 16.5″ body, wider neck profile, which works great for fingerstyle playing, and Super 58 pickups in both the bridge and neck positions that handle everything from jazz to rock tones.
The coolest thing about this experience was that he asked if anybody wanted to try out the guitar right then and there. Yikes! A couple of guys went up and played really well. George asked if one more person wanted to come up and try the guitar. I figured what the heck. This was a surreal experience that I will never forget.
