NAMM 2011 PRESS RELEASE: UK guitar company Lodestone heads to NAMM with some typically refreshing new alternatives to the plethora of 'me too' guitar and bass designs currently flooding the market.

Particularly seductive in matt black, the Pulse is also available with a 20mm quilted topand in other colours including Sunburst, Tobaccoburst and Gold.

In the bass department, the new Primal Instinct SPI delivers perfect balance and custom pickups, bridge and circuit to give this passive bass a great feel and sound.
