This was, I think, my 10th visit to the Anaheim Convention Center for the annual NAMM music instrumentation convention, and after 10 years, I can safely say I got the flow of the event down. As I have done many years in the past, I want to showcase the most unique looking guitars. This is a completely subjective gallery, that has nothing to do with the playing ability of the guitar, just the look.
My superficial picks include…
Danger! This unique lightning guitar.
An ESP Black Matte Sky Blue V – you can't go wrong.
Kiesel's semi-translucent guitar was a beauty
Not a guitar – but a Vinnie Paul snare from ddrum, lookin' sick
If Thanos turned his gauntlet into a guitar
Liquid guitars – the future!
Satchel's guitars just scream Sunset Blvd.
These pink and peach guitars can only be played by real men
The smooth bevel on these Ibanez basses is drool worthy
Sick matte finish on this Dean guitar
Kerry King's new Dean guitar
We've seen many a steampunk guitar, but this might be a standout.
The colorful design of a George Lynch ESP
