Okay, so what we've seen so far has been disappointing. This thread is for the positive stuff, or even just the surprising and different.

Fender Sergio Vallin sig. I like this body shape. It's like an offset Strat, looks like something Musicman would make with maybe a touch of Performer.

Huh. I was at NAMM and I missed this guitar at the Fender booth, but to be honest the fender booth was way too crowded to see anything.

I missed this one too, though from far afar Razz
It's not amazing, but it is interesting. SSH is a snore fest, but what's the bridge? Kinda looks like it's just a standard dual fulcrum Strat bridge on a Jag/Jazz plate...

Indeed. Now you know it's getting made in fiesta red, right? Looks pretty sweet.

I quite like that. Apart from the control plate which lets it down massively.

Treading the fine line of "not shit", Reverend released a baritone. With a frankly paltry 26 3/4" scale length. <shrug emoticon>

Such nasty nasty headstocks imo.

I would dearly love an EGC guitar. If I EVER manage to sell my RG550, then it's being turned into an immediate deposit.

I quite like it. Not so keen on the control plate/knobs, but I could get used to them. I'd also swap the tort guard for the black, but that's just me. Dunno who Sergio Vallin is, but it's an interesting take on the whole strat thing.

It's just a strat bridge with a plate around it.

HERESY!

It looks quite nice in black.



Reverend also have a Tricky Gomez with P90s. I didn't mention it because much as I love the colours and shape (including the headstock, honestly what's wrong with it?) I can't get over the flat top.

Hence the inherent flaw with signature guitars.

That Epi Les Paul Artisan sig mentioned in the other thread? This guy:

When I read the title and saw timhulio created the thread, I was excited. But this thread cements NAMM 2015 was crap on the guitar side. The Synths took all the magic.

You're saying this is "good stuff"? This fucking bastard offspring of a Yamaha Pacifica, a vintage Ibanez Blazer, a Cort G250 and a Musicman Silhouette? I think Fender has forgotten a floyd rose trem bridge for an Ibanez-esque touch

The bar is set low. This is the most interesting guitar of NAMM 2015.

"Yamaha Pacifica, a vintage Ibanez Blazer, a Cort G250 and a Musicman Silhouette". Uh these guitars are all kinda cool. Well maybe not the Cort. I ain't never heard of that one.

It looks good in black.

I assume one of those knobs is a rotary pickup selector? Not seeing anything else to do the job.
