Beginning Saturday, February 10 through Sunday, May 6, the Fort Worth Museum of Art and History will host, “Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World.”

HP Newquist, the exhibit’s curators said every guitar on display pays homage the instruments history.

“We’ve got 70 guitars on display including the World’s largest guitar,” said Newquist.

Newquist said the exhibit is perfect for Texas, a state with a deep rooted history with the guitar.

“Texas is obviously a breeding ground for guitar players… You get people like Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Albert Collins, even Lyle Lovett.”

The exhibit is free to the public, but donations will be accepted.
