Recording King Introduces Señorita Acoustic Guitar: featuring graphis depicting the beauty of the Southwest and a lonesome rider, the Señorita from Recording King is part of a limited edition series of art guitars. Each package features original box art and comes with an embroidered guitar strap, "Songs of the Wild West" songbook, and a signed certificate of authenticity.
Canvas Guitars Takes Chinese Manufacturing To The Next Level With Solid-Top Electric Guitars: they won't be to everyone's taste, but I quite like the design of the non-cutaway models. According to their website these are guitars aimed at lead singers in bands.

Jimi Hendrix Experience Artist Series Effects Pedal: errrrmmm... I bought one of these last year at the London Guitar Show (in May?), so I'm not sure why it's being shown at Winter NAMM '06.

NAMM '06 Oddities: unlike the guy who compiled this, we've all seen double-necked guitars with a neck on either side before, haven't we readers? (See here and here). Other than that there's nothing really outrageous here, but it's an interesting selection all the same.

Krappy Guitars: "Our instruments are built for frugal people who aren't very concerned with regard to quality, construction, materials, or safety. The instruments are crafted from whatever we find suitable. Pedigree of wood is not a priority for us. We might get it from a local hardware store, or use some old shipping crates, or skids. Who knows??!!"
