No guitar festival without guitar makers. In 2017 the British luthier from Oxford, Christopher Dean, will give a lecture as our ‘luthier in residence’. A new and exciting addition this year will be the 40-minute interactive ‘blind guitar date’ comparison test on Saturday 19 November. Guitarist Jan Depreter will play six different guitars made unrecognizable, while the audience may appraise their qualities or defects anonymously… Afterwards you can test the guitars yourself in separate rooms, while the makers will provide all necessary extra information.
Throughout the festival there will be an exposition of guitars, guitar dealers and guitar makers. Confirmed attendance of:
