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

The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. Due to varied hours of
