From the Editor, Karen Mandall: The NAMM Show is a musician’s Disneyland full of the latest music gear. This year I asked BlackBox13 guitarist, Joe Wiehl, to preview the signature guitars being released and report on his favorite. We spent Saturday at NAMM walking the floor to check out the various guitar manufacturers and were surrounded by beautiful instruments in every booth. Within a few minutes of walking into ESP Guitars, Joe found his favorite new release in the ESP/LTD James Hetfield Iron Cross SW. Within a week of returning home from NAMM, he added this beauty to his personal collection! Check out Joe Wiehl’s video review of one of the most anticipated signature models released for 2014, and if you are in Las Vegas on February 13, 2014, you can see this guitar onstage when BlackBox13 plays Count’s Vamp’d, opening for Lynch Mob, featuring ESP Artist, George Lynch!
