I was hoping that NAMM would be the place where KoAloha would introduce some of Pop's new signature series. Any chance that it will happen? Dieing to find out what they will be.

Pops said his next Masterpiece will debut in December 2010.

Do you, or does anyone, have any clue as to what i might be or look like or the sound? The only thing that I know is that I'm going to need one. I'm completely addicted to KoAloha!

When I asked MGM, he told me that it is top secret.

I'm probably a bit late considering all the excitement here, but can someone let me in on what Namm is?:confused:

Natonal Association of Music Merchants, I believe. The trade show is supposed to be quite the brouhaha, and MGM is there.
