The Guitar Show 2019

The Guitar Show 2019

The biggest UK show of the year is almost upon us, and I'm beginning to feel the excitement now finally! The run up to this show can feel a little overwhelming, planning the stand, getting builds and stock prepared and overall ensuring the whole thing looks just right. I hold my hands up and say I've been pretty darned hard on myself about the presentation in years past, but I'm feeling so much better about this year's stand and display and really looking forward to getting it all set-up and ready for door open time come 10:00am Saturday.

The Guitar Show 2018

Back in 2015 I was lucky enough (IE nagged the organisors most likely to the point of exhaustion!) to snag a cancellation spot for a booth at the biggest guitar show in the UK. Torn & Frayed' awesome 'The Guitar Show', and ever since then it has become one of the real highlights of the year for me.

Only a couple days to wait until The Guitar Show 2016!

Only a couple days to wait until The Guitar Show 2016!

It's almost time! 
This has come along very quickly, which to be honest is a great thing as we're itching to get started. We've got so many things planned for this and it's shaping up to be a great show.


We're taking along a real nice array of new and vintage guitars, even Mandolins & Lap Steels too! Amplifiers, Slides, Straps & accessories too.

Some of the guitars we're taking have been fitted up with a range of McNelly Pickups for you folks to get stuck into, I'm really looking forward to seeing and hearing your reactions to them, it's going to be fun! I also have a wide array pickups to have a look at, see the quality and the detail that makes them so special. 
Two of the guitars fitted up with McNelly's, are our own shop built guitars! The HoT 'Fifty & 'FiftyFour. Those I'm excited to share!

We're proudly showcasing the awesome Overdrive Straps. These retro vibe straps have caused a stir and are gathering a huge following. We're taking a nice range of their designs so pop by and have a look!

Shows like this are great to get your hands on items you've heard lots about, but are yet to see in person. One of those items may well be Gravity Picks, and we'll have hundreds with us! 

Diamond Bottlenecks have been super super busy making lots of their beautiful Lead Crystal 'Ultimate' model guitar slides for us to showcase, so if you're after a quality slide and want to try a few to see which fit nicely. Come and visit us! We have lots to try, and also some demo models of my own to try out on the variety of slide guitars we'll have with us.

We're also proudly housing the great hand forged items from 'Elder Sign Forge'. All of these items are unique, hand crafted & forged locally and Jake, the owner & maker has put together some great music/guitar related items for us to showcase! 

We're really looking forward to hanging out with everyone, meeting new people and sharing what we do. It means a great deal to us to be there, amongst the sea of fantastic names in the guitar world. It's going to be a great experience! Make sure you pop along to meet us and see what we do here, I promise we'll make you feel at home! (We have coffee & biscuits, we know how to look after us both!)

Tickets are still available in advance direct from The Guitar Show website http://www.theguitarshow.co.uk/ or on the door on either day. 

See you Saturday & Sunday!

James, Emma & the Home of Tone team!
