I went to Veenendaal today and here's the pictures to prove it.

    First of all, all I bought were some parts but no complete guitars since my budget wasn't allowing me to buy anything cool. So Instead I got out my camera.

    Here's the raffle prize, a D'Angelico teardrop, which was by far the ugliest guitar on the fair.

    DSC01305.JPG and this Hondo explorer with Ibanez neck was by far the grooviest guitar.

    DSC01306.JPG These are a rare Framus Jan Akkerman signature model in an even rarer black color and a beautiful Ibanez Artist semi.

    DSC01307.JPG What's not to love about a heart shaped guitar.

    Here's a prime example of a guitar where the makers waited too long with releasing it, an early nineties Fender HM Stratocaster, a guitar which was made for hair metal but came out when that genre got extinct.

    DSC01309.JPG Impossible to overlook the biggest amp they had on the entire fair, an 8x12 speaker cab by Marshall, this leviathan was on the third floor which must have required Herculean effort by some some poor sap to get it there.

    DSC01310.JPG A seventies SG and a Rickenbacker 480 of similar vintage

    A wonderful refinished non-reverse Gibson firebird.

    DSC01312.JPG A cute trio of sixties Rickenbackers in fireglo.

    Afterwards me and my buddy went to Amersfoort to check out guitars in a store called "Kees Dee" which was a nice relief from the busiest fair I've been to so far. While there I encountered a very weird guitar, weird enough so it deserves its own thread in "Other guitars"

    What is Veenendaal? Sounds European?

    Veenendaal is the town which hosts the biannual vintage guitar fair in the Netherlands, in March and in September.

    It's basically our version of the Anaheim vintage gathering.

    I'd be interested to hear about dates / venue for the 2018 September event as I need little encouragement to pop over to the Netherlands ;)
