Custom painted guitars strike powerful financial and promotions/marketing chords for music festivals, special events and musicians. Exhibit features guitar giveaway and performances by Bluesman Jeff Joad

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL, October 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Painted Axe announced it will exhibit at FestForums 2018, booth #y17, Nov. 14-16, in Santa Barbara, Calif. They will be displaying custom painted guitars and showcasing the financial and promotions/marketing impact their guitars have for music festivals, special events and musicians.

“FestForums is a headlining opportunity for us. We get to introduce our product to festival industry movers and shakers that we would otherwise would not have prime access to,” said Michael Gauf, owner and artist of Painted Axe. “We’ll illustrate how branded, custom painted guitars can be a reliable and lucrative fundraiser, bringing greater acclaim and heightened potential attendee interest and customer anticipation.”

Painted Axe will be featuring several guitars, including one, “Hang 6”, which will be given away. In addition, Jeff Joad, “Son of the Mississippi Delta Blues”, will be performing in the Painted Axe booth Thursday, Nov. 15, and Friday, Nov. 16.

“We’ve been looking for an event to place Painted Axe center stage, before stakeholders eager to discover something new, relevant, affordable and investment worthy,” said Gauf. “Our return on investment speaks for itself (more than 375%), but what really strikes a power chord is the overwhelming interest in owning one-of-a-kind festival memorabilia. So much so, the branded, custom painted guitars have become part of many festival identities for attendees – every bit as much as the annual poster, only rarer and more cherished.”

Gauf continued: “We work closely with clients, helping them identify and purchase a guitar if necessary, meet marketing and promotions deadlines with high-resolution images, provide progress photos and ship early enough to include in last-minute PR campaigns. We also provide a tip sheet on ‘Making the Most of your Guitar’.”

Custom painted guitars serve the interests of festivals, but also musicians. Bands and artists are continually seeking ways to step out from the crowd, connect with new fans and cement their bonds with long-time friends. Whether it’s a CD release party, a new tour or a charitable event, Painted Axe guitars exceed expectations.
