Mingo Music's Annual Guitar Show & Sale- A Look Back

 

Humble beginnings- We wanted to expose people to new stuff that they hadn't seen, and deals they hadn't seen either! 

2009 GUITAR SHOW AND SALE

 

We crammed a lot into one large room, and other than the smell of chlorine from the pool, the show was very well received.  People were already asking when the next one was- we barely survived this one!

Wow! Two rooms- this allowed for bigger displays.  We're moving up.

Dan Doiron doing a great job demo'ing some BOSS recording gear.

 

Everyone was excited to see Gibson make an appearance.

 

Two bigger rooms!  Even bigger displays, and even more people.

 

 

Local artist Duane Leblanc and his wife Rene from www.leblancdesigns.com made an appearance. Duane's done some great murals and T-shirts for us.

 

 

Our first "special guest"- Richard Gilewitz from Tacoma Guitars did some great playing, and everyone loved his talent and humor. Thanks Tacoma!

 

 

By now the Gibson displays are getting massive...but we don't mind.  Three rooms, so there's lots of space for lots of guitars.

 

 

Even while taking some time off, Dan Doiron still showed up for great demos at the Roland and BOSS display.  He's a trooper.

 

 

Guitar Royalty- we had the huge honor of having Robert Godin make a special trip from Montreal JUST to visit us.  He talked about guitar-making to a full house on Friday night, and stayed for pictures and autographs later. What a guy.

 

 

Dan Doiron from Roland knocked 'em dead on Friday night.  Always fun to watch, he can really show you what Roland and BOSS are capable of.

 

 

More space, bigger displays, better deals, bigger crowds.  What fun!

 

 

The three rooms are in full swing now, and people really have a great opportunity to try and buy some amazing gear.

 

A line-up of guitar enthusiasts waiting for the doors to open.

 

A couple of major new participants- Gretsch and Fender!

 

Lots of fantastic deals at Crazy Dave's Yard Sale.

 

No one could resist displays like these Schecter electrics and Tanglewood acoustics.
