The 103rd NAMM Show got underway on Thursday, January 20th in Anaheim, California bringing thousands of retail music store buyers, celebrities and guests to see and play the latest musical offerings from major musical instrument manufacturers, including Gibson and Epiphone!

The show runs through Sunday at the Anaheim Convention Center and is on pace to shatter last year’s all-time registration record of 74,236 with the International Music Products Association reporting an increase of 13 percent overall and 23 percent in international registrations.
