About Our Shows


All Amigo shows are international buy-sell-trade events, where public attendees may bring all the musical instruments or related items you can carry to sell, trade or have appraised.  By getting bids from several exhibitors, one can quickly establish the market value of an item and proceed to sell or trade with confidence. Attendees are encouraged to bring a small cart with up to 8 items to roll around the show. Public show hours for all events are 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays and 10-4 on Sundays. 
You may see everything from guitars, amps, banjos, mandolins, drums, violins, effects, memorabilia, sound gear, parts, effects, records, books, clothing, accessories, online companies, manufacturers, retail stores, builders, appraisers, and repairmen. Many celebrities have attended our events over the years.  Our shows are the only ones co-sponsored by Vintage Guitar Magazine, America’s premier guitar publication.
