NAMM 2011: ESP announces LTD Xtone acoustic guitars

Winter NAMM 2011 takes place in Anaheim, California from 13-16 January 2011. Easily the most important event in the music-making industry calendar, the NAMM show brings together all of the major hardware and software manufacturers for a trade-only convention.

Alongside the most exciting and revolutionary new music-making products of 2011 from market leaders like Fender, Gibson, Korg, Roland, Line 6, Peavey, Avid and many more, there will be an array of celebrity appearances and the usual helping of weird and wonderful sights and sounds from the basement.

As usual, MusicRadar will be reporting live from the show floor. We'll be bringing you up-to-the minute news, pictures and videos of the latest product announcements, star appearances and anything else that catches our eye. If you want to keep track of everything that's going on, bookmark this page and check it reguarly. If it's happening at NAMM, you'll find it right here.

Also, be sure to follow MusicRadar on Twitter and Facebook where we'll be posting live updates, pictures and videos from the moment that the doors open on Wednesday 13 January.
