Before I start shout out to Amber Ray, she is the director of the EMP gift stores and she gave me a ticket for the exhibit.
So we begin with the amazing collection of guitars only a technology billionaire could afford, just like Paul Allen, who owns the EMP.
Part one showcases all the guitars I’ve coveted since I was a kid. Including the Fender Broadcaster, Gibson “Les Paul” and an early Fender P-Bass.
Without further Hesitation….
