Guitar Player - April 2015 - New Gear from NAMM

In the April 2015 issue of Guitar Player, we brave the Anaheim Convention Center so you don't have to and ferret out this year's best new gear. For the 2015 report, we compiled lists of products that caught our eyes, spotlighted many of the big releases at the show, and cataloged other goodies worth checking out. Altogether, we feature over 100 of the hottest products from Winter NAMM 2015 to show you what real lust is! 

Later on, our acoustic section focuses on guitarist Badi Assad. After almost a seven year break between albums due to the birth of her daughter, Assad is back in the game and is doing enough work for us all. 

Then, check out our featured artists and stories - Jeff Bridges and Chris Pelonis on forging the Abiders' live sound, Vinnie Moore scores with two new releases, Jerry Horton and Papa Roach send a message of hope on F.E.A.R., and we cover Guitar Player's controversial Les Paul cover story. 

Also, José González, Jason Becker on Creativity, Scott Mathews on Producing, Tex Ritter Vintage Excerpt, and much more!
