Renowned UK luthier and Shergold Guitars designer Patrick James Eggle will join members of the Shergold artist team in a specially designed enclosure located in the festival’s backstage area with the aim of collaborating with some of the most exciting bands of the moment.
The Shergold team are looking forward to welcoming artists and management throughout the three day festival, offering them the chance to try every model in the current Masquerader guitar series, giving a sneak-peak of models to come, and – where selected - offering exclusive endorsement opportunities.
Following their relaunch by UK distributors Barnes & Mullins last year, Shergold Guitars have been the guitar of choice for a number of significant bands and artists with the likes of The Sherlocks, Fickle Friends, God Damn and The Blinders choosing to hook up with the British marque.
Featuring a wealth of features including USA made Seymour Duncan pickups, mahogany bodies, solid rosewood / mahogany necks, staggered height locking machineheads and hand-inlaid aluminium lined fret makers, Shergold Guitars have won plaudits far and wide for their superb build quality and unique aesthetic. The Masquerader series has been awarded with Guitarist Magazine’s ‘Guitarist Choice’ and Total Guitar Magazine’s ‘Best Buy’ awards and were voted ‘The UK’s Best Electric Guitar 2017’ by the Music Industries Association’s panel of leading industry retailers and publishers.
As schedules are limited, artists or managers wishing to reserve meeting times at the festival can do so by contacting Rob Bennett via the contact form on the website: www.shergoldguitars.com/contact
