Beck''s award kicks off the organization''s Guitar Hall of Fame

Montreal, Canada (July 9, 2009) -- The Montreal Guitar Show (MGS) honored Jeff Beck Monday with the very first Montreal Guitar Show Tribute Award.

For the third edition of the show, organizers felt it important to create a Tribute Award to kick off their Guitar Hall of Fame that will spotlight a handful of the most outstanding guitarists. Organizers say Beck was a natural choice for the launching of this award. The trophy, made by luthier Michihiro Matsuda, was presented to him by Jacques-André Dupont, founder and general manager of the MGS, Monday July 6 at 2:00pm during a press conference.
