Take a complete tour of the Gibson Beale Street Showcase in Memphis. This memorable tour of Gibson's Memphis guitar factory consists of an intimate viewing of the facility as Gibson's skilled Luthiers craft some of the finest guitars in the world. An opportunity to witness the intricate process of binding, neck-fitting, painting, buffing, and tuning that creates these incredible musical instruments. See and hear how Gibson has helped shape the world of music for over 100 years and continues to set the pace for the musical innovations of tomorrow. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. Due to varied hours of manufacturing employees, it is not guaranteed that there will always be Luthiers present. Tickets can be purchased inside the Gibson Retail Shop, located in the Gibson, one block south of Beale Street, directly across from the FedEx Forum and The Westin Hotel. Set aside some extra time for the Gibson Factory Store, where you can test drive a wide selection of guitars, pick up your Gibson merchandise, and take home the ultimate souvenir...your own Gibson!"
Plan ahead if you would like to take a tour of the factory. We arrived as the first tour of the day was beginning and found that all the tours until 4pm were sold out. We will try to go on another trip.
Super fascinating tour. Victoria was awesome! Make sure you have water ready for when you're done. There's dust in the air that makes it a little dry. Your lasts approximately one hour. No stairs or heavy walking. Literally just meandering though the factory. No phones or cameras allowed once the tour starts.
The tour was really interesting and informative, but be advised that it is quite noisy, and dusty.
Tour was very interesting and informative
