Guitars, amps, and stomps we saw on our first day at the Anaheim gear show.

Early days still at Winter NAMM 2017, but the new Taylor Guitars GS Mini Bass has to be a contender for the most fun you can have at the show. The sapele and spruce thumper took some ingenuity to get together (designer Andy Powers had to have special nylon-core strings manufactured to make the idea work.) But it sounds fantastic, will probably record like a dream, and feels unexpectedly slinky, rubbery, and expressive. Look for a street price of around 600 bucks.

Fitted and non-fitted risers and frames designed to work with popular effects pedals and pedalboards.
