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.

If you have always wondered how guitars are made go. It's truly amazing all the steps it takes. You get to go write into the factory where two of their guitars are made and see all the steps. Terrific tour guide.
