Saturday afternoon May 13th, 2017 was held the 2nd edition of the Vintage Guitar Afternoon around the collection of Matthieu Lucas. The first edition in December 2016 was a great success, so we organized a second event in a new place since this time it is the Studio 180 in Paris that welcomed us.

Group portait with the backstagers
To judge by the width of the smiles on the faces, the backstagers that we see below were rather happy about this moment around the guitars of Matthieu who was very generous in his explanations and answered all the questions.

One last word
Another great thank you to Matthieu who spent a good part of his Saturday to bring the guitars back and forth for the pure pleasure to share the passion of Vintage guitar.
Until the next special event, keep on playing the guitar!
