There’s now only two weeks to go until the London Acoustic Guitar Show, and once again Martin Guitars are bringing their own little corner of Nazareth, Pennsylvania to the capital city.
As well as over 50 production model guitars for you to try, there will be 3 ‘Jewel in the crown’ Custom Shop models being flown over for the event. Fred Green- Head of Martin Custom Shop- will be at the show on both Saturday and Sunday, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge from his many years at Martin Guitar and talking about the process of a custom build Martin, from conception to finish.
Also on display will be an exclusive first showing outside North America for the new Martin Retro Series. These guitar’s hybrid of new technology and old stylings have been much talked about since being unveiled at summer NAMM- this will be your chance to get your hands on them ‘one on one’.
On the stages there’s a couple of fantastic performers, with 2x Grammy award winner Laurence Juber performing a Masterclass (Sun 23rd) and talking about his playing style and time as guitarist for Paul McCartney and Wings Sun, and fast rising new star Benjamin Francis Leftwich (Pictured) Closing the show on the Sunday.
Two full days dedicated to the acoustic guitar with performances and exhibits galore. More details below!
