About this Event

More details at www.ArchtopFestival.com

The archtop guitar, from its unlikely beginnings to its current various incarnations, is arguably the most difficult to build and the most rewarding to play of all the guitar styles. Embraced by most jazz guitar players, the archtop has been a staple instrument across genres for more than a century. The creators behind these special instruments, and the players who love them, can be found at luthier shows around the world, but there’s never been a show dedicated just to them… until now!.

Our luthier line-up includes, in no particular order:

Ken Parker Archtops

Ribbecke Guitars

Benedetto Guitars

Thorell Fine Guitars

Tad Brown Guitars

Maegen Wells Guitars and Mandolins

LHT Guitars

Mirabella Guitars and Restorations

... but it's not just about the guitars! We are bringing in an incredible line-up of artists to do workshops as well as performances around Olde Town Arvada, all within walking distance of the guitar show.
