    I'm going to get a vendor space for this show. Bringing the SLO rig, a pair of Mesa Subway Blues combos, a Peavey Classic 20 2x12, a Mesa V-twin rack preamp, a pellham blue Gibson Midtown, a loaded Warmoth superstrat body, possibly a pair of Tascam 688 cassette multitrack recorders, some pickups (Duncan, WB, Bartolini, Kinman), and some misc. pedals. I'll also have one of the Khan amps there if someone wants to hear it. Stop by, introduce yourself, and we'll shoot the shit and make some noise.

    I believe I'll be able to make it but not 100% sure. I live about 3 miles from the venue so I'll do my best to swing by.

    The guy that runs the show is jerking me around on the space rental. I'll likely be skipping this show.

    Man that's a bummer. Keep me posted if anything changes.

    Well, looks like I got a table after all. The guy ironed out all the wrinkles on his end. Soooo, come to show, shoot the bull, and let's make a deal.

    Hey Big John... good luck at the Oregon show. Too far to drive for me, so I'm gonna pass. Besides, I spent all my money at the Kent show last month. :laugh2:

    Thanks again for letting me hang out and play a bit. Wish I would have had more time. Did you sell anything?

    I sold a crappy Vox wah for a buddy. Other than that, nothing, zero, zilch, nada. I kept asking dudes if they wanted to plug anything in. Everybody kept their hands in their pockets. I couldn't figure it out. One dude finally wanted to hear the SLO since he never heard one before. I told him I was going to wake this damn show up. I put the bastard on 6 and took over the building. That was my only highlight of the day, breaking loose everybody's ear wax. Funny part is the guy in the booth next door was Bruce, the Seattle/Tacoma guitar show organizer, and he told me at the end of the day that my 10 second earthquake was the best part of the show. I did get an amazing PRS trade offer for my R7 but I passed. If I come down to PDX for future shows, it'll be as a shoegazer and not a vendor.

    That’s too bad. If you’re going to drive that far just for show and tell at least there should be beer and pizza involved.
