    I tried to visit as many booths as I could but couldn't get to all of them, so apologies, I will give myself more time in the fall.

    Michael Harrison, Harrison Lutherie Works: www.harriluthwrx.com
    Mike builds custom electrics and makes excellent straps, super nice guy and his fretwork is impeccable:

    A really nice photo essay. Thanks for taking the time.
    Victor, CJ, and I get so wrapped up with the Booth, that
    everyone else who is presenting at the show, and working
    just as hard as we are, get a short shift on the main Thread.
    Good to see them getting some Special Attention.

    I could never trust myself in a place like that, it'd probably work out to be a very expensive exercise for me.

    Brilliant pics as always Brian, and plenty of them, thanks mate.

    Did anyone see/play that natural LP Custom for $1400??? That looks like a smoking deal. It appeared to be at the "Joyful Sounds" booth. Wow. :cool:
