    I will do my best, but I am not sure if I can get out.....I am actually staying at my studio Saturday night after the guitar show and am not sure the warden will let me have a "2 night pass".



    I hope to be at the show around lunch-thirty on Saturday.....

    Meatball I got your pm but I will just answer here. I was really surprised at the amount of Les Paul guitars there, I did see the ones in the cases they were nice but I thought they were 29k not 100k. I did see the Burny up front and another in the back both over priced IMO and I saw a killer Edwards JP one I have thought about buying for years it had a decent price. I was on the hunt for Fender pickups to put in a parts caster I am building and got distracted by all the guitars. I did end buying another PRS SE 245 with soapbars, I have been watching these on the bay because I have never owned a soapbar guitar and I could not pass on this one. It does not have a scratch on it and I got it for a steal. I get some pictures up today in the other guitars section. Overall I thought it was a good show and a wide assortment of gear especially for a city as small as Spartanburg.
