In late Oct. 2018 V&R headed north to Stockholm / Sweden for the annual “The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show” at Fryshuset.
The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show is by far the oldest guitar show in Scandinavia. Well organized and a very friendly crew. Hotels are located in walking distance from the show = great!
Again this year a great crowd showed up and had a great time in the presence of worldclass vintage and boutique guitars from the retailers and private sellers.
Tip Top Food & Drinks
We really like that it is possible to get proper food and coffee at the show instead of the usual sandwich and hotdogs offerings at the most shows we have gone too. It makes such a difference.
Below you see pics and video interviews from the show. Feel free to share this post and tell us what you think in the comment section.
Only for vintage stuff?
No certainly not. You will find lots of cool vintage guitars, bass, effects and amps for sale at the show. But there is also a good amount of boutique builders offering their products to the public. More of that please!

Picture gallery from our visit to The Great Scandinavian Guitar Show in Fryshuset / Stockholm. This was the 21nd edition of the show. We had a splendid time and are already looking forward to go next year again.
Yeahman´s Guitar Fest is a guitar show located in beautiful Burgdorf in Switzerland, not far from Zürich. We had an invitation to come and visit the show by founder Michael Marti and his brother. So we jumped on a plane and a train and arrived for the show to be there for the opening, sunday sep 17th. This is not a review of the show, but we must say we had a super great time and was welcomed by a very friendly and passionate team of people from the swiss music community running the show. Below you can see some of the pics we shot on the show. We recommend you go visit in 2018.
Awesome food and great service from the guys at the The Lunch Box food truck. (www.lunchbox.ch)

Music can be explored in different ways and one will always find something inspiring to take home.
On Winter NAMM 2011 we had the pleasure of meeting Gábor Goldschmidt from renowned Hungarian guitar company, Fibenare Guitars.
Gábor tells us about the Fibenare company and shows us their new beautiful line of guitars.
Fibenare Guitars was founded by the Benedek Brothers, Attila, Csaba and Árpád
All of the Benedek familily are musicians and have all studied classical music throughout the years in their hometown, Kecskemét.
Thanks to its musical tradition, Kecskemét is well-known all over the world for its musical education and Zoltán KODÁLY. His approach and methods are used today in more than 50 countries world wide.!
Around 1990, The Benedek Brothers was encouraged by their father, József Benedek, to start building their own guitars. From early on the three brothers were very interested in rock, blues, jazz and ofcourse electric guitars – because of the iron curtain Gibson and Fender guitars were very expensive and good ones were very hard to find around this time.
At VintageandRare we are proud to be working with Fibenare Guitars and hope this video will inspire you.
Our mission is to establish and develop the ultimate network/community designed for enthusiasts and retailers of vintage, rare and antique musical instruments, as well as an online network for dedicated builders of fine instruments.
Why sell through VintageAndRare?
