The 2012 Charvel Showcase at NAMM brought out the best of shredders.
Not only did the booth at the Anaheim Convention Center feature the Desolation series – including the new Soloist and Star models – several heavy-hitters of the guitar world stopped by.
RATT’s Warren DeMartini was one of the first. DeMartini participated in an autograph signing on Friday, and then stuck around for the weekend to mingle with fans.
In addition, the Charvel Showcase hosted a five-man autograph session on Saturday, with Adrenaline Mob’s Mike Orlando, Bleeding Through’s Dave Nassie, Brian Nutter of Keith Urban’s band, and Winds of Plague’s Nick Piunno and Nick Eash all inking pictures.
When the guys weren’t signing, they messed around on Charvel axes, passing around the guitar in a round-robin of audio acrobatics.
Below is video of Orlando, Nassie and Nutter each taking their turn:
