Bishop Museum celebrates guitar’s past, present

“Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked the World,” a national touring exhibition on display through Labor Day at Bishop Museum, explores all things guitar from many perspectives. There’s an in-depth look at the modern electric guitar from its development in the 1930s and 1940s to the present, a fascinating display of its acoustic predecessors and various “relatives” and ancestor instruments, and a unique-to-Hawaii section that covers the ‘ukeke (the only indigenous string instrument), the steel guitar, the ‘ukulele and slack-key guitar.
