NAMM 2014 Guitar Preview: Every Single Darned Thing You Need To Know

January 22nd sees the start of the biggest four days in the guitar calendar; the NAMM 2014 show kicks off in Anaheim, California.

It's where every guitar company, effects company and amp company congregate to unveil their new products for 2014, and the world's music media descend on Anaheim to cover the whole event.

We have six journalists covering the whole event, with the aim of bringing you the latest breaking news on new products, and filming demonstrations and reviews of new gear.

We'll also be running a live blog of the whole event, with minute-by-minute coverage from the show floor. If there's any specific company or product you want us to check out and film for you, get in touch with us on our Facebook page or Twitter account and send us a request, we'll be more than happy to film it.
