All events are buy-sell-trade shows, where you as an attendee may bring all the musical instruments or related items you can carry to sell, trade, or have appraised. By getting bids from several exhibitors, you can quickly establish the market value of an item, and proceed to sell or trade with confidence.

You may see everything from guitars, amps, banjos, mandolins, effects, memorabilia, sound gear, parts, records, drums, violins, books, accessories, online companies, manufacturers, retail stores, builders, and repairmen, to celebrities who attend the event. Our shows are the only events co-sponsored by Vintage Guitar Magazine, America’s premier guitar publication!

Those wishing to attend the closed session on Friday afternoon may gain entrance by paying a VIP early bird fee. This entitles the VIP to enter the show at noon Friday to preview those great buys. The fee is $250 for the Arlington show, and $200 for all California shows, Nashville and Chicago

General admission for the Arlington, Nashville and Chicago shows is $15, and California show admission is $20. Children eleven years of age and younger admitted free if accompanied by an adult.
