California World Guitar Show

The 4 Amigos have hosted almost 200 guitar shows across the nation since 1984. The Marin Civic Center Exhibit Hall has hosted the California World Guitar Show twice every year since 1999, which features a high-class swap meet of all things musical. Exhibitors and buyers from around the world come to sell and buy guitars, amps, banjos, violins, effects, parts and sound gear. Attendees may bring items to sell or have appraised at no extra charge. Featured are new, used, old and rare items, as well as exhibits by manufacturers, guitar and amp builders, vintage dealers, retail stores and individuals. Many star sightings have been reported over the years, including members of Green Day, Huey Lewis, Santana, Joe Satriani, Peter Coyote, James Hetfield, Thom Bresh and many others. Visitors are encouraged to bring all the musical items you can carry to trade or sell.
