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.
On this clip, Stevie, shows us some of the fine vintage guitars they brought to the show this year. A 1958 Fender Stratocaster, an old and rare 1967 Mosrite, a super rare 1965 Epiphone Crestwood Deluxe and finally a 1957 Gibson ES-175. See pictures of the guitars and from their booth on the show below the video.
At Copenhagen Guitar Show 2013 we came across a very beautiful, rare and highly sought after 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard Burst, Serial #02170. At the time it was for sale through swedish vintage guitar dealer Anderson Anderson. Anders has been collecting Bursts since the 70´s and is known as one of the premier vintage guitar dealers in Scandinavia for highend and collectible vintage guitars.
The 1958 – 1960 Gibson Les Paul Standards are the most collectible guitars within electric solidbody category.
Hope you will enjoy the pics and the video we did with Anders on this guitar from the show as well. The video starts with Anders showing us the 1960 Burst
