The biggest event of the summer for music manufacturers and dealers is Summer NAMM, held every year in beautiful Nashville, Tennessee. The Music City event showcases the latest designs and newest technology in the musical instrument industry. And this year’s hottest booth should be no surprise: the industry leader, Gibson Guitar.

The spotlight product of this year’s Gibson booth is the highly anticipated Firebird X guitar from Gibson USA. The Firebird X takes the guitar instrument to new heights of functionality and usability for the professional player and the aspiring enthusiast. Using technologies that did not exist even a few years ago, Gibson has enhanced an already outstanding instrument to unbelievable performance and creative heights. The enhancements touch every aspect of the instrument from improved manufacturing technologies to the latest electronics.

Summer NAMM runs through the weekend at the Nashville Convention Center. For more information on Firebird X, visit the Gibson booth for a demonstration or click here.
