dallas showlowres.jpgThe Arlington Guitar Show is billed as "The Worlds Largest Guitar Show" -- which always grabs our attention here at GJD. The event, which took place last weekend (10/20-21) is a buy-sell-trade show, where guitar players bring in their musical instruments or related items to sell, trade, or have appraised by dealers and buyers. Sellers usually spend their time getting bids from several exhibitors to establish the market value of an item, and then proceed to sell or trade the item on site.

At the show, attendees roamed the rows of dealer tables lined of guitars, amps, banjos, effects, memorabilia, sound gear, parts, records, books, accessories, online companies, manufacturers, retail stores, builders, and repairmen, and brushed up against some of the celebrities who attended the event.

Guitar Jam Daily was there last weekend mingling with the dealers and exhibitors, taking in all of the sights from the show, and now we bring them to you >
