World's LARGEST Guitar
Excerpts from Kristy:
It seems somehow fitting that the first and last attraction
on our whirlwind Tennessee Tour consisted of finding and photographing
the 'World's LARGEST Guitar.' Well, maybe we should clarify.
We've been calling it the world's largest guitar, because
we have been unable to find it's equal elsewhere. So until
a larger specimen is found, we will continue to give this
guitar the superlative.
over the Virginia border into Tennessee, the road weary traveler
will find the Tennessee Welcome Center a very inviting place
indeed. Sitting down under one of the sheltered picnic tables,
I looked up to discover this guitar directly across the busy
highway from us. What better way to start a roadtrip then
to gaze upon such a masterpiece? It's a beauty indeed. We
have no rough stats and can't tell you too much about it,
but as we left Tennessee 6 days later, we did pull off the
highway and investigate.
Roadside America reported that there was once a museum inside.
Unfortunately, upon peering in the glass door in the concealed
entrance we were dismayed to find only boxes of junk and cleaning
supplies. The guitar is a Martin and is still in fairly good
shape considering that it appears abandoned. Regardless, it's
a beautiful example of true Roadside Americana.
We were told that the museum has reopened!
