    That was the biggest guitar display I ever seen. In the past they held the guitar show in a smaller place. It was packed all day on yesterday. It was slower today. The mlp booth had people all around us all day dealers were coming up to us to see what all the fuss was about.

    My favorite guitars I got to touch was a guitar that was owned by Johnny Jenkins. It was a 61 SG that had his name carved into the body that Jimi Hendrix broke over a chair on stage in '69. The other 3 guitars were Les Paul's personal guitars that he would let guest play on stage with him. Some of the people that were pictured playing them were Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Paul McCartney and the list went on. Just knowing that I got to hold those guitars was awesome.

    There were alot of really nice vintage guitars there it wild to see those guitars still in such good shape. One of the coolest things was a guy that walked up to the MLP booth asking about the forum holding a old gibson case. We asked what he had in it and he opened it up and There was his fathers '58 sunburst les paul.:shock: This thing was in mint condition.

    Like I said SpaceBubby will be posting more pics of the show soon. All I got to say is Getting to hang out with and meeting forum members was the real fun. If anyone gets a chance to go to a meet you will never forget it. I felt like I was meeting family. With all the members that came.:thumb:

    Oh yeah SpaceBubby worked harder than any of us she was making business cards and signs for the guitars. She deserves the most credit. Thanks Boles and Bubby.

    Oh and Boles double neck was the main attraction at the booth. The only one at the show as well. There were some old vintage Gibson double necks with the mandolin neck but not the 6 and 12 string.

    I didn't remember to bring a camera for pics, but it was fantastic to get to meet Neil, Brian, Boles, and Bubby!! Even got to hold Boles Beautiful guitars:wow:

    It was a Great show! I got to see guitars I never had a clue even existed, so it was as educational as it was fun!

    A HUGE thanks to Neil, Boles, Brian and especially Bubby for making me feel welcome and sharing their time and friendship with me!
