For the seventh year, the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase gathers some of the world's best instrument builders for an intimate gathering and celebration of acoustic stringed instruments.

This year's exhibiting luthiers will include Barnik Guitars, Everett Guitars, Kostal Guitars, Monteleone Instruments, Sexauer Guitars, Ken Parker Archtops, and many others. See the Woodstock Invitational Exhibitors page for a complete list of participants.

In addition to instruments and related products, attendees will be treated to continuous live music, including luthier mini-concerts, demos, and special appearances by some of the nation’s finest musicians. There is a series of instructional clinics and workshops for players, plus seminars for builders, and the annual String Sampler Concert of acoustic music featuring internationally known artists (all by separate admission).

The Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase is presented with generous support from these Sponsors: Acoustic Guitar; The Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans/Guitarmaker; D’Addario Strings & Music Accessories; ESOTEC Beverages; Fishman Acoustic Amplification; Guitar Player Magazine; C.
