This message is for the small shop-luthiers builders of high-end electric-solid body guitars. Let me introuduce myself, my name is Jacques-André Dupont, self proclaimed guitarjunky, founder of the Montreal Guitar Show, VP of the Montreal Jazz Fest (2 500 000 attendees) and other businesses (artist managment, TV production and so on). 2 years ago I created the Montreal Guitar show which quickly became a very successfull event for high end quality luthiers of mostly acoustic-classical and archtop guitars. The event is very well attended (people from Canada, USA and Europe, including musicians, collectors, medias and buyers). It presents world class shows and all sorts of activities around high end guitars, making it one of the top world high end guitar destination. We do not do factory guitars (nothing wrong with them-but our event is for hand made instruments). And we do not do vintage. Our goal is simply to help small builders. This year we are thinking about opening a new room for top hand made electric-solid body makers. So basicallly I was just wandering if you the builders would see our event (a non for profit event by the way) as a good tool to develop your market. Or maybe it is not, and I will keep doing it with acoustic instruments... Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.
