    So yesterday was the ( what seems to becoming a G-T tradition ) " Thunder's meet and greet lets do lunch at the Martin Guitar Factory " . Meeting up with @Martin82 Don and @senojnad Dan and traveling there with my buddy ( my boss and Sgt. ) Anthony , we couldn't have asked for a better day . Everyone was on time and the weather was perfect . We signed right up for the 11am tour ( with a very attractive tour guide named Sherl ) , visited the museum , bought some things in the " 1833 shop " ( got me a nice pull over sweater ) , had a great lunch with great conversation and of coarse ..... played some of the greatest guitars they had in the guitar room . It was actually the first time I heard my Sgt. play guitar . He graduated from The Juilliard School of Performing Arts and it showed . The best part for me was the reminder of what great folks are on this forum . Like we all agreed , we need to do this more often .

    So here are some of the stock photos I took last year ....

    I'd love to visit the Martin factory. I'll let you know Rich when I can get out to Nazareth PA.

    No pics of the three of you though?

    IT was a great day, and many thanks to you Rich for putting it all together!
    As always, the time spent at the Martin museum, 1833 shop and factory tour was a TON of fun! One of those things that I never get tired of.....
    Great time with Rich, Don and Anthony (indeed a gifted musician).

    The jury may still be out on that...... Good news is that neither security nor the police were called......
