The Holy Grail Guitar Show 2014

The Holy Grail Guitar Show 2014We are excited beyond belief about this unique event. It is without a shadow of doubt the first of its kind in Europe, and in some regards in the whole wide world.

The Holy Grail Guitar Show is a huge leap to the hand made guitar scene in Europe, differentiating the luthier built guitar from the mass produced products. It is a bold statement, and we are honored, yet humbled to be part of this exciting phenomenon.

You – guitarist and guitar enthusiast – do not miss this event!




We’re laying low during July, the national summer holiday season in our country. During this time all e-mails are answered, but slower than usually. Telephone calls may or may not be answered – if not, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you. Thanks for your patience!

Don’t miss this! The Helsinki Universal Guitar Festival presents: on Sunday, 17th November at Savoy Theatre – Jukka Tolonen is undoubtedly the most important guitarist in Finland’s musical history. He has inspired thousands of young guitarists over four decades. As a composer, Tolonen has created a personal style in which rich and surprising melodies and polyphonic melodies captivate listeners even today.

A group of top Finnish guitarists and musicians from the younger generation pay tribute to Tolonen’s music, by playing their arrangements of the master’s best compositions. We’re happy to let you know that our good friends Antti Paranko and Markus Setzer were asked to perform in this historic concert!
