Acoustic Guitar managing editor Whitney Phaneuf is in Nashville this week for Summer NAMM 2016. Since Thursday, Phaneuf has been reporting from Music City Center, where she’s come across lots of brand new guitars and gear. She’s also headed out to mythic Music City institutions such as Gruhn Guitars, where she caught owner George Gruhn playing a rare vintage Martin. Check out Phaneuf’s first dispatch and stay tuned for more throughout the weekend.
