More than 110 of the world’s premier guitar makers will meet at the Estrel Hotel and Convention Center, Berlin, for the first edition of The Holy Grail Guitar Show. This event will showcase the best of the current boutique guitar building scene. A first in Europe, this show is conceived and organized by a group of luthiers who felt the need for a show presenting and
promoting the handmade guitar.
A stunning selection of electric guitars, acoustic guitars, archtops, classical guitars and basses, from the most avant-garde to the traditional, will be exhibited here in one location by the luthiers who created them. Each exhibiting luthier will be present at the show.
The hand made guitar has emerged as a strong alternative to the factory made instruments widely available. The ability to tailor the instrument to a client’s wishes, with woods, features and tonal character individually chosen, and the great quality of work done today, make the custom boutique guitar a choice for any serious player.
The range presented at The Holy Grail Guitar Show ranges from expensive and exclusive instruments by today’s foremost builders, to rugged working musician’s tools, designed for daily use on the stage or on the road.
With a strong international presence, this show might become one of the major yearly events for guitar lovers from all over
