Went through this thread last night; of course some real GAS inducing stuff but here are my takeaways: - Those Devon basses look really, really good. I am sorta-kinda considering a custom build in the near future and they're on my radar. Surprisingly reasonably priced for a custom bass too, which I am happy about. - Was that an HH SBMM I saw? That piqued my interest as SBMMs haven't interested me as they're usually single pickup models. Here's hoping it'll go into production. - There were a lot of Chinese manufacturers this year; this isn't a bad thing but I am surprised the one manufacturer who brought a Chickenbacker (among other things) wasn't kicked out. - One Chinese manufacturer did catch my eye though. I'm really liking those 10S basses; I am hoping they are better quality than the mass produced instruments one normally finds. That blue one is intriguing; reminds me of a Warrior. For those that went, did anyone see what it was like? - Speaking of imports, the purple Inyen with the Atlansia looking pickups is certainly interesting. Not sure of the build quality but it looks fun to play. The Wolf basses certainly look pretty but I'm not sure how they hold up to a bass such as a Sire. - Those Swing jazz basses look sweet. Anyone try those? I found a few on Reverb; they might've been the NAMM basses but I like Fender shaped objects that have their own twist on them, be it different colors or woods. - Those Padalkas look amazing. - Kinda surprised by the lack of Japanese manufacturers aside from Ibanez and ESP. I'm glad to see Atelier Z here though; just wish that Bacchus and STR would've come. Oh well; maybe they'll be at other trade shows. - Glad to see Esh and Clover come back. That Peter Steele tribute Stinger is easily on my GAS list. Thank you for all the pics; would love to go to NAMM one day. It looks like a lot of fun.
