EGB Basspedition to London Bass Guitar Show

EGB Members LeFay, DeGier, Manne and Rikkers have joined their Bass-forces to form up a Basspedition to England. Together they will fill an EGB-stand at the London Bass Guitar Show 2016 with their finest instruments, specially made for the Show. EGB Members Alan Cringean from AC Guitars and Oliver Lang will be attending as well.

There has been no better reason to come to London than on 12 and 13 March. LBGS is not only the largest Bass-Only Show on the planet, it has great Masterclasses in store. The line-up so far: Robert Trujillo from Metallica, Suzi Quatro, Dave Swift from Jools and Adele, Peter Hook from Joy Division, Michael Manring and John ‘Rhino’ Edwards from Status Quo.
And as icing on this pretty thick cake: the LBGS will be screening the UK premiere of the world’s first documentary about LBGS star Robert Trujillo’s hero Jaco Pastorius.
If that doesn't get you to London nothing will....

Custom Shop Boutique Guitar Show

takes place on March 15th in Milan - rather short notice, but very reasonable rates.  The same outfit (associated with a big Italian retailer/music magazine) is doing a show in fall, this one more in the character of a trade fair:

SHG #40  (one of the oldest shows around) Nov. 15th, also in Milan.

This is for informational purposes only.  The EGB does not endorse any show nor are we affiliated with any show except The Holy Grail Guitar Show

Our purpose is to inform luthiers about opportunities for exhibiting their instruments.  In our view, the more such opportunities exist, the better - the more potential customers we reach with our instruments, the more our niche in the market will benefit.  It is also a good thing that more shows are willing to accommodate the specific needs of the small builder.

So - there are quite a few shows around - new markets to explore and venues to help promote the handmade boutique guitar!  Pack your bags and travel!
