Hundreds of guitar and art enthusiasts turned out to see the first public exhibition of Gibson Custom’s Artist in Residence collection at the Music Zoo in Roslyn, New York. Works by inaugural artist James A. Willis include one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted guitars, works on canvas and even a hand-built, Edgar Allen Poe-themed Triumph motorcycle.

Special guests such as Jimmy Vivino and Russ Paul stopped by the exhibition.
