NAMM Day 4: Lita Ford, Ratt’s Warren DeMartini, booth shenanigans with the SD staff, and more…

The last day of 2011 NAMM was as busy as ever, with lots of people stopping by to ask about the Liberator, learn about Zephyr Silver premium pickups, and get autographs with Lita Ford and Ratt guitarist Warren Demartini.

Don Alder’s dynamic

playing brought the booth to a standstill. His aggressive strumming technique sounded astounding, courtesy of a Seymour Duncan Mag Mic combined with a D-Tar Wavelength under-saddle transducer .

Big grins from Lita Ford

of the Runaways and Warren DeMartini of Ratt.
The crowd goes wild for

Lita Ford and Warren DeMartini.
Love for MJ from

enjoyed having you.
