    Ok there's a small guitar swap meet Sat. Haven't been to one before. But I think I'm going and maybe swap my vintage blonde c.v. Tele for a nice strat. We will see what's there. I've got it listed really decent price. But selling seems slow right now. The guy putting on the show I've done trading w/him before. I'm pretty excited. We'll see what happens.

    Sounds great. We don't have any local. I've gone to the Philly show.Always have a tough time deciding what to buy. Guitar sensory overload.

    Ya not a huge show. But the dude told me he had all 60 tables paid for and rented out. Sounds promising

    Called guitar Expo. The promoter said he had 2 tables for his stuff. But had to give them up some late comets wanted to rent those. He's getting $60.00 a table and you also get a 12x12 area.

    Sounds great, Good Luck!

    No guitar shows here either. Closest would be Atlanta. Between lack of available funds and extended walking, I'd enjoy it but it would be a very short visit.

    For those of you anywhere near Columbus, OH. We put on a nice show there twice a year. Next one is June 24. The summer one is a bit smaller than the Winter one (January) but because it is smaller, easier to check things out and (I think) make deals.

    One of my trading buddies is going to have a booth set up there. He's got lots of high end stuff like some Ricks and Taylor T5s. He's a luthier and has a shop. Pretty cool guy his shop is called Grandpas Guitars. Unfortunately I won't be there.

    I'm trying to trade this Tele. For a strat. This is the one with the Tv Jones pickups top and bottom. But he sounds like he's above my pay grade. 20180610_205618.jpg 20180610_095138.jpg

    Sweet. This one is a 2016 classic vibe. And he prolly knows I'm not looking for an affinity. Lol

    He has a few he's going to take. One being a mint MIJ Squier Dakota red Strat and he also has a deluxe powerhouse strat. Look for Grandpas Guitars and tell him Tony sent you. He's a tough negotiator so be ready lol.
