    I got over there, too. It ended up being just about a full two hour drive, thanks to something on the Bee Line (528) near the airport.

    Fun show. I didn't buy anything except one of the little Strat-shaped pick trays, but it was cool to see instruments I've only read about. Lots of really big price tags, but some drop dead gorgeous LPs and more. Collector guitars, for sure, but there were also dealers with new model Epis and Gibsons at good prices. And a lot of guitars I'm not sure I'd pick up off a trash pile. I shoulda kept that Silvertone I had in 1968.

    Got to hear Rick Derringer, not to mention about a thousand guys trying out different instruments. Most of whom were pretty good. I saw one guy in a Les Paul Forum tee shirt coming in as I was leaving around 3, but I figured I don't post enough here that anyone would recognize me.

    Never been to a guitar show before, so it's hard to compare. If anyone else has the same concern I did, there was tons more than just overpriced collector guitars.

    Hey, Jim - good to see you there. Mike McQuain, too. Made a couple of sales, and a couple of trades. The show was much bigger than it has been in years. Seemed most of the vendors were doing well and intend to be back, so maybe the shitty rep of the O show will change a bit. Saw more blackface Fender amps - and huge price tags, too. Must mean the market has topped out & it's time to bail, lol...

    It was a fun show. Will definitely go back next year. Bluntforce, let me know if you have interest in doing something on my 55 Custom or 54 GT.

    Good seeing you again, too, Jesse. That Custom is a very nice piece. If I didn't already have one that I'm in love with, I'd be all over it. Did Allen go straight back to Ohio, or was he smart enough to hang out here longer?

    I was beat and done with my vacation/guitar show get-a-way.. I went straight home. I had a blast in Orlando, I wish that show was twice a year. You all should goto the Spartanburg show coming up. It's a great buy show, bought almost 40 there last year.
