FAIR PARK - Electric, acoustic, hey even banjos. The 38th annual Dallas Guitar festival has anything a guitar lover could want, even a guitar owned by Johnny Cash

Electric, acoustic, hey even banjos. The 38th annual Dallas Guitar festival has anything a guitar lover could want.

“We love coming to guitar shows, we both play a little,” says Chris Snyder at the festival with his son Josh. “There is a lot of great music, a lot of cool guitars.”

“There is fantastic representation of classic and vintage guitars that you won’t find anywhere else,” says organizer George Fuller.

The vintage selection includes a guitar owned by the the one and only Johnny Cash, brought to Dallas by his son in law.

“It’s just part of the family,” says Phillip Adams.

Better save up if you want to own a piece of The Man in Black, this guitar is gonna cost you over $15,000

It wasn’t all about vintage though. The festival kept the focus on the future with the 10 under 20 competition. Won by 13 year old Griffin Tucker

“I’ve been playing guitar since I was eight,” says Tucker. My parents don’t make me practice they usually want to make me stop practicing.”

For young and old, Fair Park was a-rocking Sunday.
