ABU DHABI 18 October 2019: The upcoming Jewellery and Watch Show Abu Dhabi (JWS) will take place on 26-30 October at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. This year it will showcase the world’s most valuable guitar which has been approved by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Visitors will be able to take a glimpse at the extravagant guitar decorated with over 11,441 diamonds amounting to over 400 carats set in 1.6 kilograms of white gold. The guitar which is named the “Eden of Coronet” was designed by Mark Lui (also a renowned song writer), created by 68 artisans and took 700 man-days to complete. The brothers of Michael Jackson are just some of the music artists who have performed concerts using this distinctive instrument.
