Montreal Guitar Show

I'm in Montreal, closing out a busy day at the 2011 Guitar Show. The show is held against the backdrop of - and smack in the middle of - the huge Montreal Jazz Festival. The guitar show features luithiers from around the world, with builders from the US, Canada, France, the UK, Asia, and more. The show is quite busy and well attended, but still very comfortable for players checking out guitars. The room, holding tables from about 100 luthiers, is quiet enough for a quick test drive right at the… Continue

Newport Wrapup

Well, I'm back home and going through the many, many photos I took to see what else might be of interest. Here's a few that caught my eye, that I don't think I've posted yet.

Newport Guitar Festival - Day Three

Day three here in Ft Lauderdale took a decidedly soggy turn, but that hasn't stopped the show.

But here's a few to hold you till thern.

I tried to catch more of the concerts today and also checked out the "other side", the electric room, which actually had some items of interest even to… Continue

Newport Guitar Festival - Day Two

Saturday was a busy day at the Hard Rock, as the crowds came in for the weekend, and the guitar show ratcheted into high gear. I spent the day trying to look at nooks and crannies that I might have overlooked the first day, starting with the Hard Rock itself. Rock may be mostly about electric guitars, at least as evidenced by the guitars on the wall, but today I noticed this nice tribute to Hank Williams on the way in, featuring an "acoustic", even if it was…

Newport Guitar Festival - Day One

Hello from Fort Lauderdale, where this year’s Newport guitar show is being held amid palm trees, and intermittently sunny Florida weather. The Newport show was first held in Newport, RI, hence the name, but has since relocated to Miami, and this year is at a new venue, the Hard Rock Café and Casino. The setting makes for a lot of contrasts. This Hard Rock is a huge full-blown Vegas-style…

Hi Doug, always enjoy you activities in acoustic guitar, gear reviews etc. I think you're a great guitarplayer and you have some really nice guitars, if I may say so! But then again, you're a pro!  Hope to keep in touch! Cheers, JJ
