Pomona Guitar Show 2012!
This previous weekend, July 21-22, throngs of guitar lovers descended from the hills surrounding the Los Angeles county fairgrounds; the excitement (and heat!) was overwhelming! The Fairplex in Pomona played host to the 2012 SoCal World Guitar Show and visitors came from far and wide. Fine collections from boutique builders sat right next to some of the best examples of classic guitars that history has to offer. Though it was our first visit to the Fairplex in Pomona, generous and kind folks made us feel right at home. As southern California was home to company founder Paul Bigsby, we always enjoy visiting and hearing stories from local folks who knew him personally. Visitors to the Bigsby booth were treated to free Pit-Stop check-ups on their Bigsby equipped guitars as well as being able to check out the full line of Bigsby products. If you weren’t able to make it, check out the photos below for a taste; and even more photos HERE.
Many thanks to all that came out to visit and share your stories. You can bet we’ll be back in 2013! Next stop…GuitArlington in October! See you there!
