Trying to pick just 10 of our most anticipated new arrivals after this year’s winter NAMM show is like picking a puppy from a shelter – we want to take them ALL home. Still, here’s a selection of some of our favourite electric guitars from NAMM 2012.
ESP Eclipse II w/ Duncans
MSRP: $2,882 (approx. £1,822)
“If you’re really into making a splash (and are into passive pickups), the new Eclipse-II w/ Duncans has an amazing new Silver Sparkle (SSP) finish that can’t help but draw everyone’s attention!”
Well, hello there Mr Sparkleboots! It’s not for everyone, but this Seymour Duncan-equipped Eclipse was one of the most eye-catching production-line axes on display this year. *Distracts with jazz hands and winning smile, while exiting stage left*
