Riversong Guitars is gearing up for NAMM 2016, where the company will debut new models and an expanded selection of its innovative composite wooden guitar picks at a new and bigger booth (#2977D).

Over the past year, Riversong has seen growing response for its guitars and picks from its exclusive North American distributor, EMD Music, Inc. located in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition, Riversong implemented a successful launch into Europe and is enjouying increased sales all over the world. Now in just its third year since launching its patent-pending guitar design, the company is growing at a rapid pace.

Riversong will debut many new models at NAMM 2016, from its Riversong Guitar Composite Wooden Picks to its new Revolutionary Silhouette series that were developed with help from the Car Racing Industry and Veterans of the climbing world.

The company has provided this breakdown of what you can expect from Riversong at NAMM 2016 and in the coming year.

1. Revolutionary Silhouette & Silhouette DLX Models w/Carbon Fiber Necks
Riversong Guitars has done it again! Building on their unique structure and adjusting system that yields better sounding, playing, stronger guitars, Riversong has combined a Carbon Fibre neck with a wooden body. Playability, and extreme neck rigidity are characteristics of Carbon Fiber necks. Another benefit is a lower resonant frequency that helps voice the guitars nicely.

Taking cues from the new Riversong Tradition Grand Auditorium Series, a new tone bracing system on the top opens up the dynamic responsiveness, while an unique X-brace on the back not only stiffens, but more efficiently transfers the energy across the back. Come by booth #2977D and see the "20 Reasons That Make Riversong Guitars Better".

2. Expanded Tradition Models: Enter the GA - Grand Auditorium
In response to requests for a smaller body size, Riversong is proud to offer its new Grand Auditorium (GA) body shape. The first release will be on the award winning Tradition CDN SE Performer, and Tradition 2 Performer. Riversong spent time developing a new bracing system that transfers even more energy throughout the body, due to its unique build construction minimizing stress while maximizing resonance. The CDN SE P GA features Flamed Chillakwian Maple and Sitka Spruce with Maple neck and Walnut fretboard, while the Tradition 2 P GA features Black Walnut back, Lutz Spruce Top, Walnut fretboard with maple leaf inlays, and Black Walnut tone ring and two comfort cuts: rib and arm bevel.

4. Vault Series
Launched last year, the Vault Series (custom builds) continues to grow in popularity and demand in Europe and North America. Many of Riversong's new models started out in the Vault and have turned into regularly produced guitars. Often featuring fan frets or intricate carvings or inlays, Riversong luthiers create these guitars one-off, daring to do the things they've always wanted to do.
