If you've been paying attention, you've noticed Fender was busy at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, introducing line after line of new gear.

The new models include a limited-edition, U.S.-made guitar from the Fender acclaimed Custom Shop, plus three new signature models. Take a look below.
Guitar World stopped by the Breedlove booth at the 2012 Winter NAMM show to find out their new Voice series of acoustic guitars. The Voice series is the result of a collaboration between Breedlove guitars and L.R. Baggs' Anthem TRU-VOICE technology. Basically, the guitars -- and there are six models in the Voice series -- will sound the same on stage, amplified, as it does unplugged in an intimate setting.
Vox has just unveiled their new DelayLab pedal, which aims to combine all the classic delay sounds and more into one handy pedal. In addition to 30 diverse delay effects, the DelayLab offers a stereo looper that can capture up to 28 seconds.
Yesterday, we stopped by Taylor's booth at Winter NAMM 2012 to take a look at the Builder's Reserve III, an ultra-limited edition acoustic guitar/amp pairing. Check out the video below for an up close and personal look at an amp/guitar combo that won't last long!
It's hard to believe it's been 25 years since the introduction of Ibanez's classic RG model guitars in 1987, but with a quarter century now under its belt, the model is getting a special treatment for its 25th anniversary in the form of the RG1XXV. An eye-catching guitar to say the least, the RG1XXV comes in your choice of fluorescent pink or fluorescent yellow.
