The Yamaha building
To call Yamaha's exhibit at Frankfurt Musikmesse 2010 a 'stand' is a massive understatement - it's pretty much an entire building. There, among the pianos and electronic drum kits (including the new DTX550K), you'll find row upon row of Yamaha guitars and basses on display - the newest of which we're checking out here.
