ESTREL BERLIN - Hotel and Convention Center, Berlin Germany
A stunning selection of electric guitars, acoustic guitars, archtops, classical guitars and basses, from the most avant-garde to the traditional, will be exhibited here in one location by the luthiers who created them.
Each exhibiting luthier will be present at the show personally. Come meet them and try the wonderful instruments they will bring.
The event name we have chosen implies a constant search for perfection, and maybe the unattainability of such perfection as well. What is important is the search for the Grail. Sometimes we may come close to finding it, but then it eludes us, forcing us to persevere in our quest. This might very well be where your personal quest for the perfect guitar finds its fulfillment.
A first in Europe, this show was conceived and is organized by a group of luthiers who felt the need for a show presenting and promoting the handmade guitar.
It is a grass-roots effort shepherded by EGB, the European Guitar Builders Association, a community of the small guitar builders from all across Europe.
