Guitar Summit 2023

Season 4, Ep. 37

Hello dear listener, 


This week, Matt and I are talking all about our favourite guitars, effects and amplifiers from this year's Guitar Summit in Mannheim, Germany. 


Guitar Summit has fast become the best Guitar Show in Europe. It's packed full of interesting, new, and exciting brands and luthiers. Mannheim is a lovely town with some great bars and restaurants. And, Matt and I had an absolute blast getting to hang out with all our friends and play loads of really exciting new gear! 


In this episode, we'll be running through our favourite things in different categories; from Best Accessory to Craziest Guitars, there's plenty of great stuff in this episode that you should be checking out. 


Hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it!
