Carpinteria, California – At the 2015 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, Willcox Guitars (booth 1432), an acclaimed instrument manufacturer and a leading innovator in guitar and bass pickups and related technologies through its proprietary LightWave Systems (LWS), will be hosting a flurry of activity at their exhibition booth.
On Day 1 of the show, Thursday, July 9, 2015, visitors to the booth will have the chance to enter a free drawing, with the prize being a Willcox Atlantis ElectroAcoustic Guitar or a Willcox Saber Bass. The raffle will accept submissions through Friday at 2:00pm, and the winner will be drawn Friday at 5:45pm at the booth.
Additionally, the booth is the site of performances by Willcox artist endorsers throughout all three days of the show. Virtuoso guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer and author Marc Cooper (Coop) will perform at 10:30 a.m. each morning and two other times throughout the day. A trio of Dann Glenn, Mark Corradetti and Virgil Donati will perform at 11:00 a.m. and twice more each day. Jonathan and Nathan McEuen, nephews of the legendary John McEuen of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, will perform as a duo at 11:45 and twice again each day. More specific performance times will be available at the booth.
Willcox Guitars and their LightWave Optical Pickup Systems are quickly becoming a new industry standard and beloved by top players, and the company is using Summer NAMM as a platform to make new friends and demonstrate the phenomenal tone, musicality and playability made possible by the revolutionary LightWave pickups. These pickups use infrared light technology to “see” string vibration, resulting in a significant upgrade in tone compared to traditional pickups.
