I've never been to it either, but I'll be going on saturday and sunday.

When I was taking lessons, my guitar teacher told me that its a good place to get gear for cheaper.

I'm going specifically to check out the Paul Reed Smith. I'm hoping I can snag a custom 22 for a little bit cheaper.

We are going Friday. I have a feeling I am going to get a major case of "GAS" when I go. Those PRS guitars look nice! (drool). I am in the market for a new amp though so maybe I will find something.

Yngwie is going to be playing at 2:00 on Saturday, but I have to work!
I plan to make it out Friday afternoon, and see if I can pick up a deal or two. The Arlington one in October is much bigger, so you might want to check that one out, too.

I think I went to one at the Arlington Convention Center but it was for ventage guitars so maybe you are talking about a differant one. I know the ventage one was small compared to the Dallas one.

I went to the one last year in Dallas and it was alot of older guitars, some newer models but more vintage than anything else. Not to may amps for sale and everything seem to be real expensive. It's a bit overwhelming when you first walk in .... It's just a lot to see. Cool thing was, Rick Derringer was sitting in one of the booths kicking back and just messing around on one of the guitars they were selling.

I was an O.K. event, but the only thing I found that I didn't like that much was the fact that you couldn't do alot of playing, agian "Not alot of amps for sale" to test anything out on.
But this event might be different this year than it was last year.

Tickets then were 25.00 per person

If you go with intentions of buying a guitar... Better bring your credit card

Gibson SG Classic
Laguna LE 422
Dean Razorback
Washburn LK60PS
Fender Bass
Ibanez Acoustoc/Electric
Marshall MG 15HFX Microstack
Line 6 Spider III Amp

Remeber...... Every where you go, there you are!

I'm gonna go. I went last year and had a good time, he's right about the amps, and most of the guitars are vintage, and very expensive, but probably not any more than you'd pay in a shop. Yngwie should be great though seeing as it's almost exclusively blues played at the shows there. George Lynch was crazy last year.
apparently UG's only type O-

I have to work... I heard of this when I went to Dallas a couple weeks ago but I didn't know when it was. I'm pretty bummed now, thanks a lot.

Don't be too bummed. We went this afternoon and it really wasn't what I expected. For $20 admission, I certainly thought it would be better....bigger.

We did attend a nice demo at the PRS Guitar booth. Paul Reed Smith himself actually demonstrated a few models.

The Dean "booth" was just a trailer and I was underwhelmed. Likewise with the Peavey booth. The personnel are *very* young and I couldn't get a straight answer about anything I asked so I gave up.

I hope the Arlington Guitar Show in October is better

I went, it was pretty cool. Yngwie Malmsteen (and his police escorts haha) walked by me and I saw Paul Reed Smith playing a few of his guitars. A lot of little kids in the Gibson Custom Shop van though, that pissed me off. Goddamn kids and their Avenged Sevenfold.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

I went and bought a new guitar. A Paul Reed Smith Custom 22 10-top. It's Whale Blue and beautiful.









The new bird inlays.













I got it signed by Paul Reed Smith himself!

I went, and it's not even close to the size of the Arlington one, but I did see a bunch of cool stuff. Warrior guitars are sweeter than I though before I got a chance to see a bunch of them up close and personal. Abyss guitars are the prettiest guitars I have ever seen! A lot of smaller luthiers and amp companies that I had never heard of, but made really nice stuff. For $20, I'd say it was worth it. Got to talk to a bunch of luthiers who were really humble and down-to-earth.
I'm going to the Arlington show this year with a couple of grand in my pocket!
