Saint Guitar Company Messenger
(Starting at $3500)
Builder Adam Hernandez has been at it for ten years, but this
was Saint Guitar Company’s debut NAMM show. On display
was an eye-catching double cutaway called the Messenger.
Made completely by hand, the 25 1/4” scale guitar features a
luthier grade maple top and a mahogany body and neck for
a rich, full sound. Gotoh tuners, wide/pyramid fretwire and
Seymour Duncan pickups round out the package, although it
can be completely customized for your tastes.
Jaguar Amplification Twin Combo
(2x12 combo $2999)
A 45-watt Class A/B amp featuring two EL34s, the Jaguar
Twin also has a Class A half-power switch which not only
lowers the volume but ups the harmonic content in the
process. The combo is available in 1x12, 2x12 or head-only configurations – the combos come standard with customized Celestion Greenbacks.
Budda Superdrive V- 40
Budda announced their latest additions to the Superdrive
Series, featuring 6V6 power tubes for 40 watts of roots
rock power. The use of 6V6s give it a more organic sound,
while still retaining that tradmark Budda bite. New cream
paneling with purple lettering also give this a different vibe
than its predecesors.
