2018 Vintage Guitar Afternoon with Matt’s Guitar Shop – Photo and video debrief

On Saturday November 24th, The Guitar Channel organized for the 3rd year, a Vintage Guitar Afternoon around Matthieu Lucas collection (Matt's Guitar Shop). It was as usual a private event reserved for our members and where Matthieu brought an amazing selection of Vintage guitars from his collection. Th most amazing part of the event is that it was possible to play all guitars! A rare treat for the happy few who came.
