    I just got off the phone with Bruce, the show's organizer. I was thinking about getting a table for me and a few buddies. $250 for both days?!? Sheesh, it's fricking Tacoma, it's not Vegas. No table for this kid.

    I hear you brother... I've shared a table with a couple buddies at the last 3 shows. Not this year!

    Anyone know if I would be able to take a 7 string pickup to this event and be able to find someone that could do a mag swap?

    Maybe you can talk Wolfetone into meeting you there in the parking lot. Have him bring his Porsche and do some parking lot donuts. I know Lollar will have a booth there, but I don't know if they'll do a mag swap at the show. There might be a few independent parts guys there, but Bruce's table price's for this show could keep them away.

    I'll probably bring it along anyway. It take 5 minutes to heat up the iron and 30 seconds to unsolder a pickup.

    I was going to go but life clamped me down. I got hit with a huge honey-do list for the weekend, as well as having to do a last minute co-host gig for a blues jam in Olympia Sunday night. There will no doubt be some NW MLPers there. Let us know if there was anything cool. Rick from Guitar Maniacs/Tacoma and Jay from Emerald City Guitars/Seattle always have great eye candy on display. If Ken Warmoth has a booth, I'll be pissed. He's been known to wheel & deal if you bring the green to lessen the load back to the shop.

    I picked up a 1986 collector series Ovation with a repaired crack for $200. Brandonwounds had a table so I spent a few minutes there talking pickups and magnets. Got some good pointers. Lots of cool stuff at the show but nothing else I was interested in. Anyone else walk out with anything?

    I went, but I have one thing to say to most of the vendors there...

    If you price your stuff at retail at a guitar show, you will surely be dragging the same crap home with you that you brought to the show.
