    Shoot, always great to see you boys! One day expect a resume to land on your desk that says "Leumas, hard working knucklehead seeks employment as Grinning Elk mail-boy." :thumb:

    Thanks for the great pictures Leo. I was great to hang out at the booth with you on Saturday. It's amazing that I walked the show twice and still see things in pictures that I missed. I hope you loaded the 3 pickup Custom towards the front of the van for better load distribution.

    I now believe that Greg should change his username to "The Humbler." :dude:

    A super clean 2002 Flametop R8, that Jimmy Wallace stopped by the Booth
    to show us. The lighting didn’t do it justice, the Flame really popped!

    Thanks so much, Artie, for the great pics, the great videos, and for making this the best show yet through all your hard work! And a big thanks to the vendors for making the MLP booth possible to begin with. Also, thanks to CJ for all his help.

    It's late, I'm exhausted, and I already typed this out once and lost it all somehow, so I'll keep it short.

    Boy, what a great time I had this weekend, seeing a bunch of old friends, making some new ones and meeting some "old friends" in person for the first time! What a great bunch of people. Artie, great hanging out with you, as usual. Steve, I really enjoyed getting to meet you, spending time with you and checking out those amazing guitars of yours. And thanks again for all your help with that '53! Tom, likewise, it was great to finally meet and talk shop with you in person, and I really enjoyed meeting Ann, that gorgeous wife of yours! Frank (fjminor), great seeing you, my friend, and thanks again so much for the goodies you brought me, and for the wood show-and-tell. Greg, you're still short. Leo, you have some amazing guitars; many thanks for helping make the booth such a success and for all the great pics! Matt, great seeing you again, and thanks for all the great pics as well! Brian, Fred, Eric, Flick, Jesse, Lou, Victor, Bear, Frank, Jimmy Wallace (if you're checking in), all the guys from Martin Six String and the Elk Nation, and all you other guys I forgot to mention...great seeing you, and hangin' out with you! Oh, and what a thrill it was to get to meet and speak with Joe B. How cool was that?!?

    And lastly, I wanted to mention that I really enjoyed "sharing" my 'burst with so many of you over the weekend. It was just 4 1/2 years ago, July 13, 2007 to be exact (but who's counting), when I got to hold a vintage 'burst for the first time...and I still remember what a great thrill it was for me. So, if I can help just a few of you experience that same feeling that I had (to a lesser or greater extent), I'm happy to help make that happen.

    Thanks again Artie and the rest of you, and hope to see you all again soon!


    Frank

    What a great show. Thank you Artie for your hospitality at the MLP booth. Great display of Guitars. Really great to meet you for the first time. Was nice to meet Tom Bartlett, you had some killer guitars there and thanks for identifying the African Kingwood and the providing the information about that wood.

    Also it was great to meet Frank Pine, to see and play his beautiful burst and to talk wood. Jeff (jpp8)- was great to meet you, talking guitars, and the next time I will need to play your aged Pagey which Jesse was wailing on. Jesse was an honor meeting a true legend, great to jam with you, until we got the evil eye from the show promoter, I also have something I need to send to you, which I wanted to give to you at the show, but by time I was giving them out, you had left.

    For all of the other members I did not get to meet, next show I will hopefully put more faces to names. One side note, Artie's grandson was really working the MLP booth making sure the experience was a smooth one for all members.

    Thank you for a great experience.

    Thanks for the photos all! I had a Saturday gig which forced me to skip the Fall show for the first time in several years. Looks like a blast! See you in the Summer!
