My husband is a metal head and loves Gibson's. I went along with him on the tour of the factory, and it was actually very interesting. The gift shop is nice and for guitar and Gibson enthusiasts, I highly recommend.

This was an excellent tour; very interesting and fun. One needs to make advanced reservations to assure that you get on the tour. Make sure you go on a weekday before mid-afternoon so you will get to see the factory workers going through the various...More
Very instructive and informative especially when you really only see the finished product normally. Also get a chance to try out some really beautiful guitars for yourself in the store. You might be surprised which model suits you best .... Not always the most expensive
