You’ve probably heard of the NAMM Show. It’s the trade convention where all the manufacturers and sellers of musical instruments and audio gear get together once a year each January in Anaheim, CA. NAMM is not open to the public, but even if you’re not going to the show, we’d still like to fill you in on what’s going to be happening at our booth, upstairs in Demo Room 213D! Of course, if you are going, we’ll see you there.
Live Performances by ESP Artists
In previous years, we’ve focused most of our time at the ESP with our artists doing signing sessions. But really, people who are visiting NAMM want to hear our guitars and basses in action.

Celebrating our 40th Anniversary with Exhibition Limited Instruments
At NAMM, we’ll have our largest collection ever of special limited-edition guitars and basses. Over 80 unique, one-of-a-kind instruments handcrafted at our ESP Custom Shop will be on display and available for sale to our dealers and distributors. See the complete gallery of “Exhibition Limited” models here. Also, we’ll be showing a number of limited-edition ESP and LTD 40th Anniversary guitars at the booth… they have to be seen to be truly believed!
Like Guitar and Bass Heaven
Nearly every square inch of the walls of the ESP booth at NAMM is used to display our instruments. New guitars and basses will be available to check out in person, along with all of our current ESP Original, ESP USA, ESP/LTD Signature Series, ESP E-II, LTD, and new Tombstone acoustic models. It’s pretty much like you died and woke up in guitar and bass heaven. As part of our 40th anniversary celebration, we’ll have more ESP instruments at NAMM 2015 than ever before, and with about 100,000 attendees expected (making it the US West Coast’s largest trade show of any kind), we’re planning on being pretty busy showing off our stuff!
The NAMM Show runs from Thursday January 22 through Sunday January 25, and we’ll definitely be getting lots of pictures and video footage from the ESP booth to share with you! Visit us after the show to get the full re-cap.
