Premier Guitar March 2011: Dying to find out what new gear will be available at your favorite guitar shop in the next few months? Our mammoth Winter NAMM 2011 wrap-up takes you to the country’s biggest gear show with pics of the scenery and write-ups on 68 guitar and bass products that caught our eyes and ears. We also debut our new monthly lesson from jazz giant Pat Martino and talk to bass god Billy Sheehan and shredmeister Paul Gilbert on the new Mr. Big album, Bryce and Aaron Dessner on the National’s acclaimed High Violet LP, and Sam Beam about his folk experimentalism on Iron and Wine’s new release. Our reviews this month include gear from Fano, Knaggs, JET, Fretted Americana, Martin, Schroeder Amplification, Stone Deaf, Tone God, Gig-Fx, and MTD.
