I had a chance to catch up with show producer Jimmy Wallace a few months ago. A true guitar gentleman, evidenced through his notable avoidance at self promotion, his passion for his Dallas Guitar Show was obvious. Jimmy is also a maker of electric guitar pickups of every variety, and like all of us, on the quest for the ultimate tone.

Always great guitarists performing at Jimmy’s Show!

Guitars West was in attendance and that always makes things fun and interesting. I’m told Mercedes was obsessing over The Kinks Gibson Flying V...who can blame her?
