April is National Guitar Month.

You could celebrate by purchasing a legendary guitar.

The most expensive ever sold? In 2005, a guitar signed by Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend and many other greats went for $2.7 million. And four years ago, someone purchased Bob Dylan’s Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar (pictured) for $950,000. (Click here for a complete list.)

Or you could come to The Berman Center for the Performing Arts this Thursday, April 6 to see “6 Guitars,” with Chase Padgett (Padgett also will perform April 8 and 9).

It’s funny, it’s engaging, it’s extraordinary talent when Chase Padgett – whose shows have sold out throughout the country – becomes six different characters (from a 19-year-old prodigy to an 87-year-old blues aficionado) and plays six very different styles. 

For tickets, which start at $37: theberman.org or 248.661.1900.
