20 of the Prettiest Guitars We Saw at the 2018 NAMM Show

0

The experience of setting foot inside the annual NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center is difficult to describe to anyone who hasn’t been, but we’ll say this: it’s intense!

Hundreds of companies have booths set up, stretching basically as far as the eye can see, where they’re showcasing all their new releases for the year. Among those are the big dogs whose names you’re surely familiar with — ESP, Jackson, Orange Amps, Marshall, etc. — and small boutique makers from all over the globe. It’s loud, yes, and it’s most certainly exhausting, but it’s basically a dream come true for any gear head.

As we do each year after NAMM, we’ve collected a few photos of some of the prettiest and funkiest looking guitars we saw on the show floor and posted them for anyone who couldn’t attend to peruse. We’ve included a few other fun shots, too, because why not?
