Yeahman´s Guitar Fest 2018 Gallery

Once again we headed out to the wonderful guitar event – Yeahman´s Guitar Fest in Burgdorf, Switzerland. The show is hosted by V&R seller Yeahman´s Guitars. Great atmosphere, friendly people, lots of cool instruments and gear from dealers, luthiers and boutique builders.

This year the show had expanded with an acoustic section as well (which all proper guitar shows should have BTW). This worked super well and added yet another great dimension to the already amazing show.

Check out impressions below and feel free to leave a comment in the comment section below.

1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue

1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue Demo

1962 Fender Jaguar Sonic Blue

How often do you get the chance to get your hands on an original vintage 1962 Fender Jaguar in the super rare custom colour, Sonic Blue? Well here on V&R we have only had 1-2 for sale over the years, so we were looking very much forward to demo this old & beautiful jewel.

The Fender Jaguar introduced in 1962 as a top-of-the-line model – designed to attract players from Gibson. The production ran over only 13 (1962-1973) years since guitarplayers found more interest in fx. Stratocasters and Telecasters. It achieved it´s popularity on the surf guitar scene. The one we have here is from September 1962. All original with case. Sonic Blue is a very rare custom colour for the early production Pre-CBS Jaguars, so we did not hesitate much when we were given the opportunity to demo this jewel.

Gear used for this demo

1964 Selmer Zodiac Twin Fifty / 1992 Marshall 6101LE 30th Anniversary / 1966/67 Vox Grey Wah / DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 / Simble Overdrive / Bixonic Expandora EXP-2000R / Industrialectric RM-1N / Strymon BigSky / Strymon DIG dual delay.

Mics used : Ear Trumpet Labs (Edwina & Evelyn) / Sennheiser E906

Holy Grail Guitar Show 2018 Picture Gallery

VINTAGE & RARE AT THE HOLY GRAIL GUITAR SHOW 2018

V&R just got back home from the Holy Grail Guitar Show which once again took place in the beautiful city of Berlin. As a bonus, this edition we had a stunning weather, which seemed to have made the overall vibe of the show even better!

We shot a good amount of video interviews and demos in our hotel room, which we converted into a video studio for the occasion, keeping our team working almost 24/7.

What is HGGS?

For those who are not familiar with it, the Holy Grail Guitar Show is an event targeted to guitar enthusiasts focused on high quality handbuilt instruments, featuring builders from all around the world since it’s first edition in 2014. No matter what type of guitar player you are, or what type of guitar you like, you are guaranteed to find something for you at the Holy Grail Guitar Show. Acoustics, electrics, archtops, classicals, basses, just any type of guitar you can imagine all had one main thing in common: SUPERB QUALITY & INNOVATION 

To be honest, this has probably been the best edition so far. One great thing about this show is the calm and peaceful atmosphere at all times. As opposed to many other shows around the world, electric guitars are only being played in dedicated booths, avoiding a big cluster of guitarists trying to play louder than their neighbours simultaneously, creating a cacophony that starts to become painful after just a few minutes of navigating around stands.

Throughout the show, many demo concerts took place on a welcoming and intimate stage, allowing attendants to focus on the quality and sound of these handmade instruments. This really does make for a more enjoyable and less exhausting show to attend, making it easier for builders, dealers and customers to focus on their deals. As you would expect from an event taking place in Germany, the organization was nothing but outstanding, making it probably the best organized guitar show in the EU. We simply cannot recommend this show enough!

Shortly, we will upload footage of the show, including more photos, videos and interviews with some great luthiers!

What do we think of the 2018 show?

We think this was probably the best Holy Grail show so far. It feels like this has become one of the best (if not the best) organized guitar shows in EU and we are very proud to have supported and been with them on this amazing journey from the first show. We are happy to spend the time, resources and energy as Premium Sponsors for the show – for the second time. This is truly one of our favourite guitar shows in the world. This year had such a great atmosphere and vibe. And the fantastic sunny weather was the cherry on the cake.

World’s finest instruments

If you are musical instrument aficionado and fan of handmade guitars this is the must-go-to show in EU.

V&R founder,  SoMe & Marketing talk

Our founder did a lecture on Social Media and Marketing for builders and music industry folks on the EGB Symposium before the show. Sharing our knowledge and helping out is an essential part of our involvement in the show.

Dream Sequence Hologram Electronics Demo by Vintage & Rare

Dream Sequence from Hologram Electronics

The Dream Sequence from Hologram Electronics landed on our desk a few months ago and the other day we took it out for proper test drive on our pedal board.

This pattern-based multi-effect pedal certainly is in a league of its own and is an endless source of inspiration for the creation of a wide variety of cool soundscapes. Like the name says, this little powerhouse combines a pattern sequencer with a bunch of effects geared towards spacey, pulsating sonic architectures with a rich, dreamlike quality and a distinctive synth-like feel.

1965 Fender Custom Telecaster Guitar Demo

We have always been huge fans of the Fender Custom Telecasters. We recently got our hands on an original L-series Pre-CBS 1965 Fender Custom Telecaster. On the clip below you can see and hear Klaus from V&R take a spin on it.

Demo gear: 1964 Selmer Zodiac Twin 50, DryBell Vibe Machine V-2, Mad Professor Big Tweedy Drive, Bixonic Expandora EXP-2000R, Strymon BigSky

Fender Custom Telecaster history. 

The Fender Custom telecaster is different from the Telecaster Custom in the way the it has other features. 2 different models.

In 1959 Fender came out with a new model – the Fender Custom Telecaster. If featured a double bound body. This year Fender also started to do slab-board fingerboards. Apart from the body binding there is no difference from a standard Telecaster. It´s all about the binding.
