Tenured readers of the PiercingMetal Blog (especially those who have been most focused on the “Convention Adventures” topic) have been enjoying our occasional forays into the Brooklyn Guitar Show that takes place twice a year at The Brooklyn Bowl. As a matter of fact, it feels as though I had only just closed up a report about the Spring edition of this particular show that was held a few short weeks ago. Now it was time to pack up my gear and take a out to Freeport, NY to see what the “NY Guitar Show & Exposition” was all about. That’s in Long Island for those of our readers in other countries who have no idea what we are talking about.
The reason for supporting this particular show would primarily be based on the fact that my good friend and occasional contributor to the PiercingMetal site Joe Kaufman would have a table of his own with his new guitar line at this show. This would be his first showing of his instruments to the public in this fashion and since I was able to participate and help him out a little big, I eagerly joined in for the fun. Here’s the program for the festivities, and don’t worry I wandered around a lot to give you an idea of what you missed should you have had that happen.
Here’s my old friend Joe Kaufman in front of his table with a number of his guitars – only five are displayed here but he brought about ten I think. Yes they were for sale and while I have a lot of other photos from his booth you will have to check those out on the official website for his company.
