A guitar show and music festival celebrating the art, science, and passion behind the guitar’s most enigmatic incarnation!
The archtop guitar, from its unlikely beginnings to its current various incarnations, is arguably the most difficult to build and the most rewarding to play of all the guitar styles. Embraced by most jazz guitar players, the archtop has been a staple instrument across genres for more than a century.
The creators behind these special instruments, and the players who love them, can be found at luthier shows around the world, but there’s never been a show dedicated just to them… until now!
