“GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” Exhibition Update

Here’s an update from our friends at National Guitar Museum on their rockin’ road tour to change the way people are getting exposed to the guitar with “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World”

We’ve seen an average of 1,000 people per day come through the exhibit over the past month. The exhibit has been featured on the cover of the Orlando Sentinel (along with three additional reports) and has been covered by Fox News, Channel 13, and the local NPR affiliate. Not to mention all the web coverage and Facebook tie-ins.

Performance and appearances in just the first four weeks have featured Roger McGuinn (who received our Lifetime Achievement Award), Pat Travers, Larry Coryell, Vic Flick, and Muriel Anderson. In addition to the contributions of individual luthiers and manufacturers, special events so far have already featured the Taylor Road Show (sold out) and Dean Guitars.

That’s all since the middle of June. And we’re just getting started. Orlando is the first stop on our tour, and we’re taking it all over the country. More than sixty instruments, twenty interactives and videos, photos, banners, artifacts and lots of branding and partnership opportunities are all part of “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World.”


Our Traveling Exhibition – “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” – is in Orlando, Florida through September 2011. Now booking future dates!
