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.

Vintage Vibe, Master Built Magic, and Cheap Cool

Vintage Vibe, Master Built Magic, and Cheap Cool

By Sophie Dockx

Three to go

At one time I had three Strats in my workshop: a 1963 sunburst worth 9.000 Euros, A 2001 white Custom Shop, master-built by John English, worth 5600 Euros, a 2004 Mexican ‘Buddy Guy’ signature strat, worth 600 Euros.

They all needed a fret leveling job, and they all needed new strings and a proper set-up.

All three are built to exactly the same design, and they all had alder bodies, and Maple necks. They were all fitted with three single coil pickups each, and sported a vintage-style Fender Synchronized tremolo bridge The Buddy Guy had a maple fretboard, the two others had rosewood fretboards.

Which one did I like the most? Not an easy question to answer, since I am four ‘I’s.

I like listening to guitar playing, I like playing guitar myself, I like teaching guitar, and I like working on guitars. To each guitar, I am audience, user, instructor, and caregiver.

Each guitar that comes in, gets plugged into the dry channel of my Roland Jazz Chorus.

It is not the most musical of amps, but it is plain honest. Tube amps are instruments in their own right, that is why I find it difficult to distinguish between the sound of the guitar, and that of the amp. It is like tasting a Frankfurter, wrapped in a bun, embedded in tasty Sauerkraut and with French mustard on top. You can say you had a great hotdog, but you can’t really say much about the Frankfurter inside it, that way, right?
