Big guitars, big hair, & prizes at Austin-Bergstrom Int’l Airport

Fitting perhaps, that on the day we learn about the death of guitar legend Les Paul we have opportunity to post a short entry about a collection of 10-foot tall guitars now on display at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Austin Giant Guitars

The “Big Guitars,” souvenirs from a local fund raiser, are located on top of bag carousel three.

While you’re down in the baggage claim area at Austin Bergstrom International Airport, be sure to visit the restroom (both the men’s and women’s; if you can…)

The women’s room has several styles of “big hair” etched onto the mirror; in the men’s room, it’s a variety of hats.  The artwork is by Jill Bedgood.
