NORTHBROOK, IL – Cort Guitars and Jeff Berlin have collaborated to release the Jeff Berlin Signature bass guitar for 2014. The new model will debut in January at the NAMM Show located in Anaheim, California and begin shipping to dealers in February.

Andy James: Repeat of yesterdays Hosted Hangouts

Ok put your guitar down and take a break from all that hard practice I know your doing!

Last nights 'Live' event was great, we had hundreds of viewers and questions! I just got done answering a bunch of them over on my Facebook page. We just couldn't get through them all on the event!

There were a lot of people who missed the event, so we have uploaded a reply!

Andy James Live :: Hosted Hangouts

This was the first time ever I have done this type of event and it was a lot of fun! It was great to connect with so many of you guys.

It went so well we have decided to add this into the Academy membership as a private 'members only' event and we will do at least one every single month! The platform will be a little different and people will be able to join the event and talk direct to me on camera! Im hoping to get to jam with a few of you, live online! As this won't be a public event it will be much easier for us to manage the questions and work closely with all our members inside the Academy!

This 'special extra' is for the Premium members only, and full details of the options will be coming soon when we launch the Members area!

So, until the next event stay cool and get ready for the launch of the Academy which is coming very soon!
