California World Guitar Show

Three things you know you totally could’ve done back in 12th grade—quarterbacked the football team; hooked up with the Homecoming Queen; become a guitar god. Too late to play catch-up on the first two, Ace, but the last one’s still doable. Go check out SoCal’s biggest annual buy-and-sell guitar show and you might just find the Gretsch or Rickenbacker that turns you into a latter-day Link Wray, Bo Diddley or Hubert Sumlin. There’ll be hundreds of new, used and celebrity-owned models, plus appraisal booths, memorabilia, banjos, mandolins, drums, records, books and all manner of equipment. (PS: If you did QB the team and bop Betty Jo, we hereby salute you with Jimi’s “Star-Spangled Banner.”)
