Photos from the 2003 NAMM show held in Anaheim, California in January 2003 show a busy booth. At the show we had hundreds of visitors, each able to play a PalmGuitar®, We featured a prototype of the PalmGuitar® Basic, two PalmGuitar® Standards, and one example of the PalmGuitar® Custom. The Custom 4 string bass, drew lots of attention. Built on the PalmGuitar® platform, the bass used a simple humbucker pickup, normal bass guitar strings, an ABM bridge and compact bass tuners. Each of the instruments was hooked up to Korg® Pandora® processor with headphones.

 

Though we don’t have photographs of all of our customers, we do have a few of some of the new customers we gained at Winter NAMM. Kevin Eubanks was kind enough to send us these shots of his visit to our booth, and also holding his PalmGuitar®.

For a brief moment in between greeting dozens of fans, Joe Satriani dropped by the booth to pick up a PalmGuitar® for his son ZZ, and was kind enough to pose for a photo with us. Joe started to play the guitar at the age of 14, and among his vast range of professional accomplishments is that of a gifted guitar teacher. We're incredibly proud to have heard ZZ Satriani jam on a PalmGuitar® in his formative years. Stay tuned for more ZZ ...

One of our favorite customers is "Karaoke Karl" Detken, an executive for Pioneer Audio. So far, Karl has logged close to 350,000 miles with his PalmGuitar®. Many of you have asked, “Can you actually play a PalmGuitar on an airplane?” Karl suggests, “if you play right handed, choose seat A … the left window.”  Though you can't use any wireless gear in flight, normal headphone amps with an instrument cord are fine.
