This past weekend, we exhibited at the Bee-3 Vintage Great American Guitar Show outside of Philadelphia, PA and had a blast. We had a nice booth next to Reverend Guitars and were delighted to be visited by many new and past customers who were scouting out more guitars to add to their collections. While showcasing our Studio™ Guitar Case Racks and our multiple guitar stands like the Session™ Deluxe and our popular Carousel™, which brought a lot of attention from visitors to our booth.
This was one of the larger shows that are held in the NJ/PA area and it attracted lots of vendors and visitors. Seeing the vast variety of guitar styles and colors by both the larger manufacturers and the awesomely talented luthiers never ceases to amaze us. Every guitar is just so unique, each with its own look and its own personality. The choices were endless.
Vendors came from far and wide: from as close as New Jersey and and New York to as far as California and Japan! Quite a few vendors showed interest in offering our racks in their stores and we were happy to speak with them. The show was a great place to build existing relationships with vendors and existing customers as well as to grow new ones with new visitors to our booth. Some of us were fortunate to see Nashville Guitarist Johnny Hiland play a few songs at the Martin Six Strings Customer booth. He played with a virtuosity and energy rarely seen in country western music. It was a real treat to hear this fine guitarist put on a heck of a show.
Even greyhounds – i.e., the canine type – benefited from the show. Generally, at most of these shows, some former racing greyhounds are brought in by the Pocono Greyhound Rescue and hang out near the front door to help warmly greet the attendees and to bring much-needed awareness to people who can help support and find homes for our retired canine friends.

Looking forward to the 2015 Great American Guitar show!
