The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar final reveal!

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar final reveal!

Well, you've waiting patiently enough. Seeing as it's sounding, playing and looking great, it's time to reveal what it all looks like and the work that Jason at The Guitar Show, Rob Williams Guitars, Oil City Pickups, Grainger Guitars, Crimson Guitars, Williams Guitars have all put into this instrument which I'm sure will help raise a great amount for the Prostate Cancer charity chosen for the raffle. I do believe that the lucky winner will also receive an amp courtesy of Laney Amplification too, pretty cool indeed! For more information on all of this, do please check out The Guitar Show's social media  and get yourself to the show, enter the raffle and perhaps wind up walking away after winning this cool build! Thanks to Jason for letting me be a small part of it, been good fun seeing it come together first hand and really looking forward to it being taken home by the lucky winner. 
Anyway, onto the final photos! Enjoy

Follow on from part 1, it was time to get the freshly assembled guitar set-up! Willams Guitars had made the neck, and had installed a neatly fitted bone nut blank in there ready for slotting. So it was there where I started the set-up work.

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar

There's often prizes and competitions offered at Guitar Shows, but not many that I can recall to this high standard I must say. For this year's Guitar Show, the organiser had the idea of bringing together a group of UK based guitar makers and brands to build an instrument that would be raffled at the show and go home with a lucky visitor. The specs of the guitar have been chosen by the followers of the Guitar Show's facebook page, so body shape, to colour, to pickup specs and it has resulted in a very high spec guitar indeed! For the final stage of the build, the guitar has made it's way to my office so I thought I'd put together a few blog posts about the build as well as a reminder of what this is all for. Below is the post from Jason (Guitar Show organiser) about what charity the raffle ticket sales will be donated too. Well worth a read, and makes it more special for me to be a part of this great project -

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!
