NAMM 2024: The world’s biggest guitar gear trade show is back – and it’s returned to its rightful January time slot.

Yes, after NAMM 2022 took place in June, and NAMM 2023 hit the Anaheim Convention Center in April, NAMM is back where it belongs: the tail end of January. And it’s a good thing, too, because it means we can bring our old ‘Happy New Gear!’ pun out of retirement.

One of the most surprising launches of the show – before it's even started – is the Pacifica Professional and Standard Plus, Yamaha's top-of-the-line, Japanese-made takes on its long-running range, which is traditionally associated with beginners.

Dig out the spandex: the Peavey Vandenberg is back, baby – and Adrian Vandenberg is on hand to promote it. He's very tall, you know. The guitar is being billed as a modern take on the original, and three different versions will be available, complete with a Floyd Rose original tremolo and Seymour Duncan pickups. Noice.
