Reunion Blues brings Vintage Guitars Road Show to Guitar Showcase music store

November 14, 2008 -- On Saturday, December 6, the Reunion Blues gig bag company is unveiling San Jose’s first “Vintage Guitars Road Show” at Guitar Showcase, offering musicians free appraisals and opportunities with industry producers, collectors, and players in the area.

Vintage guitar experts will be on hand helping to assess current market values for guitars and basses ranging from the unused and forgotten to the priceless relic. Reunion Blues is offering this Road Show to help musicians gain a sense of current market value for that old guitar or bass.

“We are participating with Reunion Blues in this event primarily because we believe musical instruments should be played, not stashed in the attic collecting dust.” Said Guitar Showcase president Gary Wineroth. “Most importantly, this Vintage Guitar Road Show concept will provide a rare social networking opportunity for local musicians to get out, get together and help one another get more gigs.”

All attendees will also have the opportunity to enter a drawing for any Reunion Blues guitar bag in the store, and receive a free subscription to Premier Guitar Magazine online.

The event will start at 10:30 AM with the last appraisal at 4:30 in the afternoon. Guitar Showcase is located at 3090 S Bascom Ave., San Jose, CA 95124.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
