Nobody’s buying square box ads on VintageGuitar.com for $25 a month … I figure it’s because they just don’t know about it! I’m actually thinking about it, are you?
I spent the weekend at the Arlington Guitar Show 2011, in Arlington, Texas, with the Vintage Guitar crew … Alan, James, Ward, Gil, Barbara, Lisa … man, what a blast!
The show itself was nutso, mind-boggling … more guitars in one place than I’ve ever imagined … check out the VG photo gallery on the Facebook page …
Hanging out with everybody was like a Hollywood night for me – Gil Hembree is a celebrity, am I right? Lisa Sharken? I don’t know about you, but I consider Ward Meeker a living legend of walking, talking guitar encyclopendiums …
And watching those dealer jams, amazing … you think Brad Paisley can play? Meet Gary Hutchison sometime! Smokin’!!! Meeting the dealers, Berlin and Belzer, The Burst Brothers … the guys from Cream City … all of it was just great.
Thanks a lot, VG … anytime you want to send me again, I’m in.
Now tonight I’m gonna see if I can make my Tele sound like those jam session dudes … practice, practice!

On April 9, 2007, Josie Alise Greenwood, my 3-year-old grand niece, died of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. As you may imagine, it was devastating to her family. They formed Team Josie, which participates in the annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life and to date [April 2011] have raised nearly $26,000 for the Society. This year, Team Josie is raffling a PRS SE Singlecut Korina donated by PRS Guitars. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
