In this ever-popular event, running June 30–July 2, festival participants can meet new luthiers, try their handbuilt guitars, and perhaps go home with a brand-new instrument.
Over the years we have welcomed luthiers from all over the world, including the guitar shop of Johnson Strings, Stephan Connor, Joshia de Jonge, Jeroen Hilhorst, Jeremy Cooper, Alan Carruth, Bruno Boutin, Michael Anthony, Jeremy Clark, Steven Walter, Sergei de Jonge, John Slobod, Harris Musical Instruments, Guo Guitars, Benoit Pierron, Aaron Ringo, Bruce Thompson, and nail specialist Miro Simic.
Each day pass gives luthiers access to the Luthiers Expo. This includes space for your instruments, a table and rooms for prospective buyers. Luthiers will also be featured in the GuitarFest program booklet and on our website.
Day-pass holders will also receive auditor access to all Boston GuitarFest events on the specific day of their pass, including concerts, master classes, and more.
