For the last few years, I chronicled my favorite guitars of NAMM. Every year I walk the NAMM show floor and marvel at the gorgeous artwork that some of these guitars happen to be.
While GearGods likes to cover the more technical aspects of the convention (head on over for 300 videos featuring product demos, announcements and performances), I prefer to make a list every year of the sexiest guitars. These are being judged purely for aesthetic purposes, and not for their playing ability. Without further ado…
Whatever the hell this guitar is…
Eddie Van Halen's Guitars Will Always Make My List
Dean continue their streak of most metal guitars
These ESP Customs are simply works of art
Legator's Sunburst 9 String
Marty Friedman's simply gorgeous signature Jacksons
The most patriotic guitars at the show
Peavey's Powerslides Look Futuristic
Slipknot's Mick Thomson knows how to design a guitar
Steve Vai knows color
This Kiesel Beauty
Brendon Small's white on white Epiphone
Bonus: Jeff Hanneman's custom Marhsall amp
