What does this years Tempe Guitar Show have that last years didnt? Juice and jams.
The events in a parking lot, so its tough to get electricity to all the exhibitors, says event coordinator Orin Portnoy. But this year, more than half will have it, so folks can try out the gear. Weve also got some live bands to make it more festive.
In its second year, the event will feature more than 25 exhibitors brandishing guitars, amps, drums, and other musical merchandise to experienced ax wielders and future riff masters alike.
Fender is always interesting, says Portnoy on this years must-sees, But Id also recommend Modkitsdiy.com for those interested in building their own pedals and guitar amps, the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, and Porter Pickups for the more experienced guitar player.
