Best Place to Buy a Guitar? Best Place to Sell a Guitar? I say: Guitar Show!

4-Amigos Guitar Show Nashville 2015

Howdy friendly guitar folks!  This past weekend I set up shop at the 4-Amigos Guitar Show in Nashville, one of Nashville’s finest annual shows.  Man, I gotta tell ya, I LOVE guitar shows! Let me tell ya why!

First, it is, of course a fantastic place to see holy-grail dream guitars, like this ’59 Burst:

1959 Les Paul Burst Original

Or, this real-deal ’57 Gold-Top!

1957 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Original

As a matter of fact, there are ALWAYS more Les Paul’s that you can shake a stick at!

And acoustic players, there are always plenty of holy-grail acoustics too.

Man, I LOVE seeing the cool, the weird, the wonderful, and the unique guitars like these original 60’s clear Dan Armstrong’s.

Vintage not your cup of tea?  Maybe you are looking for a custom builder to lovingly craft your dream guitar from the ground up.  Look no further, as plenty of top-notch builders are always showing, like these fine friendly folks from Rock Road Custom Guitars.

Of course, there was some goofy guy there selling some really fantastic looking custom hand-wound guitar pickups and amps!

And, while I’m on the subject of me … I did promise myself that I would NOT be dragging any more guitars home from the show, well … you guessed it, I just couldn’t help myself. 

GoldtopNow, if like me the price on vintage gold-tops is a bit out of your price range, you can ALWAYS find something unique and unexpected at a guitar show that you CAN afford.  Here’s the bad-girl that I just couldn’t say no to … oh, and she was just as cheap as she is trashy :-).
