At the Cordoba booth, I caught my friend Dave Martone doing a set of rock and metal covers on nylon string guitar.  He noticed my Iron Maiden shirt and adjusted his set list accordingly. \m/(-,-)\m/

 

Divine Noise has been my favorite guitar cable since I learned about them in 2013.  Their cables feature some new connectors (right angle speaker cable & tiny right angle patch cable) as well a new spiral-shielded cable for XLR & TRS cables.

Cables can have a variety of sleeve options

Fender had their eye-catching Lego guitar and amp (later got to hear both being played) and their Acoustisonic won a best in show award. I got to hear and play it both unplugged and through a PA speaker and it sounds great all around.
