    They have it every year on the same date so to speak. Lots of good deals I always found. I go both days so I can see what I want to get, then come back Sunday and wait until I see from the selections I wanted and get really good deals on them! Not many of the guitar shops want to haul back equipment 800-1300 miles back home and try and sell it there!

    There are music stores from East Coast, North, and West Coast come from all over and it is the biggest guitar show in the U.S.! You will be shocked when you first walk into it for the first time!

    Back when I first started going to them in 1996 when Gibson Explorers and Firebirds were around a $1,000 new, I would get brand new ones for $650-$700! A LOT OF SAVINGS on Sundays!

    I would wait until about 1-3pm on Sunday to make my purchases as the place would be thinned out by then compared to Saturdays crowd!

    I hadn't been in the last 10 years, so I am excited to see whats there!

    I'm planning for it - I'll do my best to make it. Seems like it sneaks up on me every year.

    I would love to go one of these years but until I get there I would love to live vicariously through one of you guys! So is anyone going? Any good stories from the show?

    The Arlington Sheraton would be your best bet, because it is connected to the exhibition center and "everybody" stays there.

    The hotels in the area may be packed, because the Cowboys have a home game that weekend and the stadium is near by.

    You will need to register your guitar at the entrance.

    Find the TW59 booth and you will be all set :)
