My son and I did the tour May 15.  What a terrific experience, and worth the 450 mile drive (each way).  Loved the museum, some great stories in there.  Staff were very helpful and se4emed to be genuinely interested in making the tour an enjoyable experience.See More

Good idea.....I'm likely going the next few Fridays so let me know if you are going to drop in and we can connect.

Just curious, if you are a 'rookie' how come you have so many good guitars?
