Also, I meant the DJ that does this kinda stuff...
I'll be showing up at 10:00, decided it's probably not worth $20 to get in early. Anyone else going for sure?
Pretty sure I'll be there, looking for miscellaneous parts and what-not. No DJ; he's fishing.
I'm still planning to attend just to see what's there.
Anyone else bringing any gear to this thing? I haven't had any luck selling my Lone Star so I plan to take it along.
I'm not planning to but maybe I should consider bringing my AC30C2...
I'm bringing my Mesa 4x12 but a vendor at the show bought it. You'll probably see it at his table for sale. I'll be looking for certain speakers, tremolo parts, pups, plastics, yada yada.
I'm here, is anyone else?
I was there about an hour ago. Probably couldn't miss me with my wife and 4 kids tagging along.
I saw you and the family right before I ran into BigJohn and Lungo!!
I was the incredibly good looking guy wearing the sleeveless GIBSON shirt.
Only 2 R9's there.
The CC #2 and the Lemon '13.
Now, Big John turned me on to a guy there that does set ups.
The guitars that he did were very well done!!!
Disappointed in the vendors but it was great meeting the guys I ran into!
Don't remember a good looking guy wearing a Gibson shirt.......
It was great to meet you, too!!
I noticed that you didn't have your glasses on, so I can see why you didn't recognize the beauty!
I liked seeing a few of the old Gibson semi-hollows, and a few cool old amps. There were two old Supros, a more recent Gold-tone, and even a really old Silvertone amp head and cabinet.
Kinda hard to talk for most of my time there with some guy blasting through an old Princeton. His playing was fine but a bit loud and long.
How long did you stay? I'm glad I ran into John and his buddy or else I wouldn't have stayed very long.
I went in with the Buddy of mine, that suggested a brew pub for you guy's to go to, and stayed another 45 min or so.
I think I had more fun running into friends than I did looking at the items.
There wasn't much of anything there I was interested in except for maybe the guy selling four Crown PZM mics for $40 a pop (but they were beat to hell). I did find a guy that did amazing fret work; super low action with strings bends up to the ceiling without fretting out. I played 3 Orvilles, 2 Ibanez Artists, and a Burny that the guy set-up and those damn guitars practically played themselves. Getting rid of the Mesa 4x12 at the show put a little coin in my pocket but there wasn't anything there to spend it on.
Meh...I had more fun hanging with Lungo & LPC and talking gear than walking thru that show.
If it was a short & portly dude in his late 30's with a hat on, that would be my bud Frank. He was trying out an original TS-9 thru the Princeton. That damn amp filled the place.
It was a nice sounding amp. But no this was a guy with a beard and ponytail, iirc, in his 50s or so. Playing twxas blues. Sounded fine just loud.
Oh, that guy. Yeah, he had the SRV thing going, but agreed...played way too long. The whole time he was wanking, I was thinking to myself "I wonder if he knows how to play in a band?"
That's funny, I sometimes wonder the same thing. It's why I really don't like doing that kind of exposed "demo." Seems unless you know a bunch of canned blues licks, you don't have much to play. I know a ton of songs, where the guitar may or may not be featured but they sound pretty boring without a band!
So I feel really dull and boring and unimpressive when I'm sitting there with a guitar and amp and no band.
