The Summit will include workshops & performances by premier fretless artists such as Erkan Ogur, Tim Donahue, Ned Evett & David “Fuze” Fiuczynski. The scope of the Summit will include artists from Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Ecuador, Japan, Canada, UK & back to the US w/ NY’s own Elliot Sharpe E#, Jon Catler & VVV. As always, this event will bring together the pioneers of the fretless guitar and those they have inspired to lose the frets. Additional venues are being considered in Manhattan, NY

Donors may also receive up to $1,000 off a custom fretless guitars.
