    Oh yeah, the Fall Philly Show thread has arrived!!

    This thread has proven time and time again to be a great deal of fun in itself, right along with the show.

    I'll be there, I've already booked non-refundable air fare. :laugh2:

    We're booked (Terri and I) into the nearby Homewood Suites, where a lot of show folk are staying. I reckon they are offering a "show special" of a reduced rate. They do every year.

    Great prices and beautiful suites.

    Google Audubon Homewood for the number.

    Man I'd love to go to that show.

    Wish someone would do something like this in Nashville.

    Can someone tell me how this show compares to other shows in different cities?

    I went to the Nashville show. It was in Franklin back in May (I think). Far, far smaller than Philly. And pretty congested. Still cool to see all the guitars.

    I've been to them in Santa Monica, Pasadena and Orange County, CA.

    They pale in comparison to the Fall Philly. It's the one to make.

    Not just that, but there's a buzz goin' at the MLP booth. At any given time, you don't know who's going to pop in. That's what it's all about; online friends meeting up, online acquaintances becoming friends.

    Hell, that wrasslin', chair bashin', spit shoutin' Fezziwig and I were as thick as thieves, two years running.

    It's not just a great guitar show. It's the MLP booth, and this is MLP. You guys, every one of you are what make it happen, what make it great.

    would you say there are some good deals to make a purchase?

    or more of paying a premium for a guitar but you can see it feel it play it and accept paying the premium as it will be a superior item in most cases...

    or alittle of both? best guess of how many for sale?

    i would like to try and get up there and if dave is correct in his opinion i hope to be thrilled as i have never seen any shows offered within a days drive from my home...any info would be appreciated

    i did watch a few uTubes from past shows and looked like a blast

    It's a good show. Not as big as it used to be, but still worth the effort.

    And OMG, you might meet some of the crazy sonofabitch MLPer's in the flesh.

    A couple of our MLP friends walked out of there with some great deals.

    As with everything, cash is king. I've seen our MLP member AXE haggle his way into a vintage LP Special. They will deal.

    I think our Mod Victor walked away with something good too..

    Yes. Yes I have...

    There are deals to be had at the show. Of course, it all depends on what you're looking for, but deals are there.

    And the MLP booth is the main hub! Members and non members alike use the booth as a resource.

    This, right here. Discussion of what great deals are out there takes place at the MLP booth. This I have heard myself.

    Then they run off to the great deal and nail it. Bring it back as a prize. This I have seen more than once.

    Then they come back with their plunder, everyone goes "You got it! Oh, man, lemme see that!."

    Will Homestead Amps have a Booth at the show?
    With such a spectacular Summer show they had,
    I have to believe they will back this fall.

    Roger that, Dave.
    The Booth is command central for a huge amount of
    networking going on between members looking for
    that hard to find gear. Great point!

    Wow, very nice Artie, I appreciate your kind words. I'll be bringing these two. The sunburst I'll be trying to sell, as I'm working on a vintage lefty purchase.
