Because we share in common the same love for the guitar, we meet a lot of talented musicians who have a lot to offer to the public. To help them to have a larger audience we have decided to record them in the Library of our house that turned out to be for the occasion what we called The Little Library Concerts studio.

We could ask for any guitar players to come here and play but we choose at the first to invite our clients and friends who choose their instruments in our showroom. By doing that we want to share a little bit of our history and to introduce you to these incredible players.
We of course will continue to produce the Demo video with Philippe who are more product oriented and help you to make guitar comparison.

The Little Library Concerts objectives are to offera different way to discover of our instruments by having amazing guitarists playing wonderful pieces on these guitars.
