About the Show

The Northeast Guitar Expo will again bring together our regional guitar community for a great day to see amazing new and vintage instruments. All types of guitars, basses, electrics, acoustics and related musical products will be on display.

The largest guitar show for consumers in the Northeast, this show offers all types of guitar and bass players access to amazing instrument builders, dealers and manufacturers. A great event for the guitar community to interact with all facets of the industry.

This event is a unique opportunity to meet many great master luthiers and to see, play and purchase fine handmade instruments directly from the builders. Or maybe you’ll find that elusive vintage instrument…

The Acoustic Café

In response to our acoustic builders concerns over the venue being too loud, we have a separate show room, The Acoustic Cafe, for everything unplugged. Only acoustic instrument builders and dealers will be in this room, first come first served.

This show space allows for a much quieter environment for the acoustic experience. We promote the Acoustic Cafe specifically as part of the Expo marketing. Only 14 booths are available in this prestigious show space.
