Getting Ready

Getting Ready SHow Booth

We are excited to announce that Rocco Guitars will be exhibiting at the Summer NAMM show in July! This year the show is being held at the brand new Music City Center in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

We have been very busy getting ready for the show and believe me there is a lot to get ready for that has nothing to do with building guitars. Trade show booth design, graphics, table coverings, furniture, lights, brochures, holders . . . it seems like it’s a never ending process.

Coordinating all the things that need to be done to exhibit in a professional manner and still finish three new guitars and about 20 new pickguards has been a real challenge. However, we are managing and can see the end in sight. We will be ready for the show and to my good fortune bringing something new and special.

I like being busy but sometimes there is just so much to do that it’s easy to overlook simple things that can make a difference in your life and business. I am reminded of a quote by the artist Georgia O Keefe,

“Nobody sees a flower–really–it is so small it takes time–we haven’t time–and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

While I admit to being of the type A personality with never enough time and always working on something, I am very fortunate to be married to a wonderful woman who allows herself time and has the ability to see beauty and magic in things that others might consider mundane. Through her unique observation she has come up with a design concept that I believe will be a very special addition to our line of custom hardwood pickguards.

The new pickguards will be unveiled at the Summer NAMM show and we have even sponsored a display case in the lobby to promote them. I love her for this – thank you Lisa. I would encourage everyone to find the time to look at the little things around you or be receptive to others who have the ability to do so. Stop by if you are at the show we will be in booth #1369
