It's that time of year again, gear lovers!

The annual Winter NAMM Show—where gear manufacturers large and small show off their latest (and potentially greatest) offerings—takes place Thursday, January 19, through Sunday, January 22, 2017, in Anaheim, California.

As always, several members of the Guitar World crew are making the rounds at the massive Anaheim Convention Center, shooting photos and videos, gathering gear news and sampling the coolest new guitars, amps, effects and devices for 2017 and beyond.
