About Our Shows


All Amigo shows are international buy-sell-trade events, where you as an attendee may bring all the musical instruments or related items you can carry to sell, trade or have appraised.  By getting bids from several exhibitors, you can quickly establish the market value of your item, and proceed to sell or trade with confidence.  Show hours are always 10 am to 5 pm, except the California shows, which close at 5 pm on Saturday, and 4 pm on Sunday. 

You may see everything from guitars, amps, banjos, mandolins, drums, violins, effects, memorabilia, sound gear, parts, records, books, accessories, online companies, manufacturers, retail stores, builders and repairmen, to celebrities who attend the event.  Our shows are the only events co-sponsored by Vintage Guitar Magazine, America’s premier guitar publication.

Those wishing to attend the closed sessions on Thursday, from 1 pm to 6 pm, and Friday, from 11 am to 5 pm in Arlington, and on Friday from 11 am to 5 pm at all other shows, may gain entrance at noon by paying a VIP early bird fee. The fee is $250 for GUITARLINGTON, and $200 for the California, Nashville and Chicago shows.   

General admission to all Amigo guitar shows is $20.  Children eleven years of age and younger are admitted free if accompanied by an adult.
