Photo's from my Country Music Hall Of Fame trip

Postby guitarchuck » Sun Aug 28, 2011 5:20 pm

Here's some photos that I took this weekend at the CMHOF. I resized them in photobucket, but they may not show up the correct size for a while. Not the greatest, I used my cell phone camera, but I thought some of you would like to see them:

Image
The sign that greeted us at the baggage claim in the airport!

Image
The sign on the side of the building outside (CMHOF).

Image
A photo that I just had to be in. :D

Image
Chet's favorite Electric guitar, his 1959 Gretsch Country Gentleman.

Image
Chet's favorite amp.

Image
Some of Chet's Gibson guitars.

Image
Some of Chet's Gretsch guitars.

Image
Chet's C.G.P. degree.

Image
Fred Gretsch and myself.

Image
Myself and Duane Eddy.

It was too dark for my cell phone to take pictures at Tommy's concert. It was a great day at the HOF!

Also there are several billboards around town advertizing the display. I didn't get photos of them, but I saw one with a 6120, one with his Super Axe and another with his 1959 Country Gentleman.

Thanks guys,
If you get the chance to go you should while they have the display. It's really nice. My pictures don't do it justice. It was hard to take the pictures while I was in there because the Tommy Emmanuel concert had just let out and it was a little crowded in there. I would have liked to have taken a few more photos.
I bought the Official Exhibition Catalog, which is a really good book. You can order it online if you can't make the trip:
