    Yes, I was just perusing all the builders' stuff. Some guitars I'm eager to try out.

    That`s totally cool. An old friend of mine changed his career 20 years ago. He was a photografer and a mediocre guitarist. But he always loved to deal with guitars. He was the first one to offer ultra-high quality reliced guitar parts worldwide. Today he travels the guitar-shows internationally. Besides of a completely paid home, cars, motorbike he owns some of the greatest vintage guitars I ever saw. Seems that he did everything economically right in his life. Cool scene.

    My best and favorite guitar tech, Ted Vig, is a graduate of said program.

    Interested in going, Lee? I'm planning on attending Sunday.

    Thank's Jim. I'd like to go but I'm totally crushed with home maintenance right now.

    Went to the Minnesota guitar show this weekend. It was mostly small builders and a few other other pickup and accessories makers. There were some demos by each builder. I went on Sunday which is the less busy day. Here are some pictures.

    A few very pretty acoustics:

    1917 Gibson L-1. It was part of a small collection on display. The guy who loaned them, played a few and talked about the guitars. (That's why the one next to the L-1 is missing. It's going to the stage. The Gibson soon followed.)

    And lastly, Jon Kammerer Customs. I've looked at these guitars for a few years. They are innovative and unique. Guess which two I immediately grabbed to try out!

    It was a good show. I found out there is a bigger show in the summer in Mpls. The TC Drum and Guitar Show. Have to check it out, Brent! Glad to hear things are coming along.
