Returning to Birmingham’s Bingley Hall on 23-24 February 2019, The Guitar Show has already booked almost 90% of its exhibition space to some of the world’s favourite guitar, amplification and effects brands.

Among the manufacturers confirmed to be showcasing new gear in 2019 are Marshall, Orange, Bareknuckle, Roland, Diezel, Eastman, Laney, Ibanez, Peavey, Faith, Blackstar and Ernie Ball/Musicman. Focusrite, Shure and Source Distribution will also feature, following high levels of interest in the show’s dedicated music production area, introduced for the 2018 event.

Alongside the established electric and acoustic exhibitions, The Guitar Show live stage will again host the best of British talent. Among the highlights, Status Quo’s John “Rhino” Edwards will be taking to the stage with side project Rhino’s Revenge. Featuring FM guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick and drummer Richard Newman (Paul Rodgers, Rory Gallagher, Steve Marriott, Glenn Hughes), the band will be playing songs from their second album, released a mere 17 years after their debut.
