Now in its 12th year, the show is the only large-scale guitar show to take place in West Yorkshire and is highly anticipated and regarded by visitors and exhibitors alike. Hosted by Northern Guitar Shows Ltd., the show has all their trademark features – an affordable entrance fee for visitors, sensibly-priced exhibitor costs with no added extras, free parking for all, good transport links including proximity to the motorways and even a nearby railway station.
Forged in the stye of USA table-top exhibitions, the show is first and foremost a retail event. New, vintage and pre-owned guitars, amps and pedals will be available to buy, trade and sell from a host of retailers, distributors, manufacturers, luthiers, boutique makers and private collectors. Plenty of special show bargains and on-the-day prices will be available on a wide range of products, both new and used.
As with all NGS events, workshops, demonstrations and live music will be available in separate areas throughout the day, with some of the top names in the industry performing in an intimate setting. This year sees former Stone Roses and Asia guitarist Aziz Ibrahim Esq., performing an eclectic set with his usual multi-genre mastery. Vintage Guitars are proud to present Porcelain Hill – all the way from California on the last date of their UK tour, playing high-energy blues, soul, funk and punk. Druzkowski Guitars & Taurus Pedals will feature the incredible, virtuoso playing of master guitar builder Przemek Druzkowski and his band, whilst acoustic duo The Huers will showcase their superb songs, great playing and sublime harmonies through the show’s PA system provider BOSE Professional.
Every visitor will be entered into a free prize draw to win a Vintage V100MRJBM Icon Distressed Gold Top guitar worth £399, with runner-up prizes of The Guitar Magazine subscriptions.
All this plus refreshments and a licensed bar make the Leeds/Bradford Guitar Show the ideal day out for any guitar aficionado.
