Exhibiting at The Carolina Guitar Show

For the sake of any who may have actually read my previous two posts, I did say that this one would be about “Fretting” however, I’d like to talk about the recent Vintage guitar show I attended.

The Carolina Guitar Show was held August 27 & 28 in Cabarrus Arena near Charlotte, NC.   Attending an event like this as an Exhibitor was a first for me.  I did not expect to make any sells, this was about exposure.  I made a ton of contacts and also had a lot of interest from the public and very positive feedback.  The real interest there was for Vintage Guitars and there were hundreds, maybe thousands of guitars and most people coming in were looking for specific vintage models and not a new  guitar.  There were a few “exhibitors” who were there to purchase only for investment or resale in other markets.  Overall it was a positive experience for me as a builder and a guitar enthusiast.
