A Look at The Guitar Show 2018 in Birmingham

The Guitar Show returns to Birmingham’s New Bingley Hall this weekend for the UK's biggest guitar event, where the world's leading gear manufacturers will be displaying all the latest and greatest guitars, pedals, amps, and more.

Exhibitors at the event, which takes place February 24 and 25, will include British amp mainstays like Marshall, Orange, and Laney, pedal companies like Fulltone, Earthquaker Devices, and Boss, and guitar makers PRS, Ormsby, Taylor, and many others. Pro audio gear manufacturers like Presonus and Rode Microphones will also be on hand. For a full list of exhibitors, check The Guitar Show website here.

There will be a strong presence from homegrown guitar building talent, too. UK luthiers will be represented by the likes of Patrick Eggle, Rob Williams, Feline, Crimson, and Reiver to name a few, showcasing the very best in domestic custom and bespoke design.

The Live Stage will feature musical acts like Joe Kelly & The Royal Pharmacy and Ed Geater throughout the weekend and will also host talks from Cliff Cooper, founder of Orange Amplifiers, luthier Przemek Drużkowski, and more.
