    Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't extend a big thank you to Artie for pulling this all together, to CJ for all his help, to Leo for filling up the tables with some awesome guitars, and to the rest of the mods and members who came from near and far to help make this such a fun and memorable event. And let's not forget the forum sponsors as well...thanks, guys!

    I would love to tell all the stories, and share with you how much everyone
    did to support the Forum. To thank everyone who gave their time, effort,
    money, and labor. This year, the list is too long, the sacrifices too great.
    The 2013 Fall Philly MLP Forum Booth displayed nearly a half Million dollars
    of Vintage and Rare Guitars and Amps. This years show broke attendance
    records, in fact this is the first time in the five years that MLP has had a
    Booth, that anyone remembers the admission line extend through the lobby,
    out the doors, and down the sidewalk, half the length of the building.
    Every year the support for the MLP Forum Booth has grown, and this year
    was no exception. To everyone that took part, I can't tell you how grateful
    I am for each of you. :thumb: Thanks to you all. :applause:

    Sorry I missed you Frank. I was there with my lady, and although she's a good egg, the stopping at every booth for a 20 minute yammer session with old friends got pretty thin after a while. Eric (Double E) asked how I get her to come to these things, and I gave him the scoop: Never take them anywhere....then they're thankful to leave the house, even if its just for a guitar show. Anyhoo.....I ate up a ton of time talking to Larry (he always has the best toys, and he's a great guy), Shelton (I still want that 6121) and some others. I'm kind of thinking hard about Larry's blonde cutaway Excel. That guitar felt like butter in my hands. I already have a low-rent D'A, but if I offed a Les Paul and an amp or two, I could swing it. That guitar was the shiznit, as far as I'm concerned. Usually Summer Philly is guy's day out for me, so I'll be a good camper and swing by and introduce myself. Cheers!

    I think it would be cool to find a neutral place with a pavilion where we could set up drums and a PA and everyone could jam and drink and be merry. Burgers and dogs whatever. The only thing about the show sometimes is it hard to hear people...or maybe I am deaf? But ALWAYS a blast to see everybody.

    Well if you would sit still for a minute instead of terrorizing the other dealers, maybe we could get a good pic or two...

    It feels like I've been going non-stop, since Thursday night. I stayed an extra day, thinking I was too tired to drive home after the show. But, of course, me and my friends stay up til about 5:30am. I drove home yesterday, unloaded the van, got everything out of cases and in it's right place, loaded the cases back up, returned the cases to storage, properly stacked the cases, returned the van, went home again, showered, suited up, and finally headed in to work. I was running on fumes all day. If it wasn't for the holiday pay, I would have just banged out. Anyway, I finally just got a lil rest, so I'll be uploading pics(including your ugly ass, Greg) soon :D

    So after a little digging I found out that the Gretsch was made in 2005, but still had the factory plastic film on the trc and the back of the tuners. Wild. I guess it's a guitar that either got lost in a stock room or just never sold for some reason.

    Thanks to everyone for making this year a huge success:applause: if it weren't for you guys I would have to get a gym membership. I had a blast helping out the MSSC guys and getting to hang out with the MLP gang. Hope to see you all next year.

    I asked if Frank and Tom would indulge me, because when else am I going to be able to hold a few hundred grand worth of vintage Bursts again?
