Taking place this weekend – on Saturday 28 February and Sunday 1 March – at Bingley Hall in Birmingham, The Guitar Show line-up will now include bass player Yolanda Charles (Robbie Williams, Paul Weller), and brand new offerings from PRS Guitars and Italian pedal brand Nemphasis receiving their UK debut.
Founded in 2011, Nemphasis is the brainchild of Matteo Bresciani and offers boutique-style guitar and bass effects pedals for discerning tone buffs (including analogue chorus, distortion/fuzz and optical compressor models). UK distributor Madison and Fifth will be demonstrating the new range on its stand throughout the weekend.
PRS Guitars’ latest addition to its hugely popular affordable SE line, the SE Santana Standard and SE Santana Specials offer a choice of soapbar or regular humbuckers and will appear alongside a range of PRS’s high-end 30th Anniversary models and much more.
Other highlights confirmed for The Guitar Show include appearances by artists including: Bumblefoot (Guns n’Roses), Simon McBride, Graham ‘Pin’ Pinney (SikTh), Chris Jones (Voodoo Six)
