Vegas show and back to NAMM

Damn! What a great crowd in Vegas. Packed the place and rocked them out!
Band sounded great. I was trying my new stereo rig situation which sounded awesome (well, I thought so).

Had an amazing time hanging with Roy Kariok  (Toni Braxton) and Hanan Rubinstein (Alicia Keys, Ellie Goulding) at NAMM.
Those guys are SICK!
And guess what…I’ll be back tomorrow (Sunday) for some more gear checking and picture taking.

Representing at NAMM – See you there!

Shabat Sean Banner 4 PrintShabatSeanBanner4Print_downsizedGood day everyone 🙂

For those of you who don’t know what NAMM is, it’s the National Association of Music Merchants in the US. It’s a Semiannual event. One of which is held here in Orange County.
So, if you find yourself at the convention center in Anaheim, CA this weekend, please come say hi.
I’ll be running around all over, meeting people and talking to the wonderful companies who hook me up, but if you wanna find me, you’ll most likely do so at the “Shabat Guitars” booth (Booth #1278 Hall E).

I’m looking forward to seeing all the new gear that’s gonna be coming out this year AND meeting a bunch of you guys.
After all, I gotta gear up for “Under The Sun Tour 2014”. 😉

See ya this weekend.

Such an awesome run, hanging with the guys and performing for all the fans.
We got to pull out some classics this time around, like “Padrino”, “Pacific Coast Party”, “Story Of My Life” and more.
Always fun playing the songs that fans ask for time and time again 😉

Digitech_WhiteI’ve recently had the pleasure of being endorsed by the awesome FX company – Digitech.

Although I have a bunch of their FX, my favorite is the Whammy 5th Gen.
I’ve upgraded from the 4th Gen to the 5th Gen since they now have the option for Polyphonic tracking!!!

“Shabat Guitars” Endorsement

shabat-video-logo-for changesWhile working very closely with Mr. Shabat himself on what I wanted and what I expected of my guitars, he managed to craft a few different guitars for me. Ranging in wood types, pickups, tones and colors.
They stay consistent EVERY night on stage and are some of the most reliable guitars I’ve ever worked with.
