Laos has been wonderful so far. We're heading to Luang Prabang today. Any travel tips?
Good one @section2! Have a great holiday and time looking forward to the new guitar. PS. You could have had it sent to me, too. I would have happily delivered it when you got home
Luang Prabang is a UNESCO world heritage listed site so it has been preserved as much as possible. You can walk around the whole town in half a day. Be sure to visit the night market, and if you get up early see the procession of monks through the main street accepting gifts of food. There is a local delicacy made from river-grass made into sheets with tomato slices on top, then sun-dried on the roofs of local huts. Try that if you are adventurous. Just out of town there is a backyard distillery that makes moonshine with snakes and scorpions inside the bottles (I didn't risk it) There is the Buddha Cave not far from town that houses hundreds of Buddha statues, you have to cross the river by boat to see it.
Enjoy your trip, Paul! Glad the Blue Jr made it safely to Florida.
Here it is! It's still 9,200 miles away from me, but my mom has graciously done the unboxing honours and sent me a few pics to tide me over.
The painter's tape was left on to mark the bridge position before shipping, and the pickguard has yet to go on. It's stunning. Really looking forward to spending some quality time with this bluebird when I get home.
Great pics! We've had a few days here in Luang Prabang now, and it's a wonderful place. We leave for Bangkok in two days. Bangkok is one of my favourite cities on earth, but still, I don't want to leave LP. What a magical town.
That's a beautiful guitar ! I also love Gretsch Jr's. I own one now( 6118 Jr ) and looking for a good deal on a 6122 Jr.
Your mom did good, great pics. Does she play?
You should be proud of that one, it's sexy!
Great that it's arrived safe!
Congrats again sir.
I love the red dot markers on the side of the neck!
That's a coincidence. When mine arrived back in 2016 I was in Thailand too, but up in Chiang Mai.
She plays piano beautifully, but I don't think she's ever picked up a guitar.
That explains those perfect pics, she understands musical instruments.
Another coincidence, I shipped both of those guitars!
After they hung out together on your wall:
Now I'm jealous
