    I realized a day after posting the flyer that I'll be coming back home that same Sunday from camping in Florence. So, unless I haul all kinds of ass on a majestic scale from the Oregon dunes, I'm going to be a no-go for this one.

    I was on the fence at first but I'm 99% sure I'll be there.

    I'll be there, sharing a 3-table booth with a couple buddies. Look for the old guy with glasses wearing a red Martin guitar hat. Stop by the booth and say "Hi". :cheers2:

    I might hit you & your buddies up for a little table sharing at the next one, Slater. If my next incoming amp works out like I think it will, I could be having a Soldano/Mesa spring liquidation sale. Maybe.

    I'll definitely be there. My wife will be with me which could be dangerous because she's an enabler.

    IMG_3558.JPG Had a good time at the show today and hung out with slater for a bit. Picked up an Emerald City Engineering bamboo guitar stand that holds 6 guitars (and talked myself out of some guitars I didn't need).

    Then I bought myself a '56 Les Paul TV Special. It was a good day!

    You bought the TV Special?! You were still on the fence when I talked to you. I didn't tell you I could hear you playing it the first time I made my way around and it sounded damn good. :thumb:

    Yeah, they came down a little more on the price and I could........not.......resist. :laugh2:

    Sorry to hear redjunior! Hope you're feeling better today.

    Yup, a 'player grade' '56 TV Special... it's beautiful alright, but it's a re-fin and has had some restoration work done to the body. Original pickups/electronics, and no head stock repairs. I'll try and get a few pics up later today.

    Here are a few shots of my new (to me) '56 Special... Sounds heavenly through my 5e3.
