    That's right up the road from me. Might have to swing by? Hell, I may even try to unload a couple of guitars?:hmm:

    Yes, please bring them by. I will be helping a buddy, Dean Zink (basically the best tube amp tech in the area) with his booth at the show. I always find it an entertaining and educational experience. hope to see you there!

    John ;:^)

    Heck yeah. I'll plan on going. We should all try to meet up to at least put some faces to the names.

    Like I stated earlier, I should be at Dean Zink's booth. I'll probably bring a couple pieces to sell/trade/whatever. I may be wandering around the floor, but stop by - love to meet. I have an older all-tube Randall 2x12 combo that is pretty much a copy of a Vox AC-30 tb, even the Celestions!

    Dean is great! I'll try and make it too if so many of you guys are going. It would be cool to meet. Only about an hour drive for me. I have it on the calendar.

    Agreed. He's done work to several of my amps in the past. I just wish he lived closer to me, lol.

    We should definetely all try to get together, that would be cool!

    I've got a MIM strat I'm about to upgrade the pickups on. Do they have deals on things like this? If so I may wait until the show.

    Absolutely! You know how us gear-heads are, constantly changing stuff in search of tone. I picked up a set of Lindy Fralins at one of the shows for less than a hundred bucks a few years back. I am partial to Van Zandt blues PUs, and upgraded two of my strats with them. The Velvet Hammer PUs made by Red Rhodes back in the '70s and '80s were awesome (if you can find them). You can never tell what might turn up at the show!
