Deke's Guitar Museum

The museum featured several special exhibits, including a history of the steel guitar, the world's largest G. L. Stiles collection, an actual 1956 Bigsby electric guitar, and Joe Maphis's original 1954 Mosrite "octave neck" from his original doubleneck guitar. Plus hundreds of other wild and wooly, rare and vintage instruments!
