Neat pics. I was gonna go, but I missed it (I live in Arlington).
Thanks for sharing with the class.
LOTS of guitar pics. Bass pics too?
What basses of note did you see there? I REALLY wanted to go, but had too many family commitments (like my wife's knee surgery!) to make it.
I especially wanted to catch Pete Skjold's display.
Well to be honest, aside from Pete's booth, which was shared with Anderson Guitar Gallery, and the Warrior booth, there was just a bunch of fenders and EB's really. Not a lot of note. I will say I went Saturday at the end of the day and only spent about an hour walking around.
There were also a lot of delusional sellers out there, wanting 12-30K for Fender Jazz/P-Basses that werent anything really special to me really.
BTW John, heard you sold that Marchlewski after all...it made the baby jesus cry...
Juneau, I was there early Saturday, and your assessment is mostly correct. Bass-wise, outside of the Anderson and Warrior booths, the ratio of vintage type fenders to non fenders was about 5 to 1. Its still cool to go around and see all those old guitars and what not though.
Too bad I live in Michigan!
har har har, that stingray that they list as 1250 (tort pg, burst) i got for 850. yipeee
My mother in regards to the octaved 12 string Warr.
Mom: What's that right there?
Me: A 12 string bass.
Mom: Oh... You have an 8, right.
Me: Yeah, can I have that one too?
Mom: No, be happy you have more than four.
I want more pictures of Pete's stuff. That was great, I'm still in awe...
Actually, that Warrior is a 15-string, 3-course/5-string.
And do a search here on Skjold, Im sure you'll find plenty of pics
Did you happen to try out the new pre-amp?
Cool pics. I forgot how horrible the Fender 12 string headstock was.
Anyone have info on the Ampeg guitar? I've never seen one of those. The Armstrongs, yes, but not those.
No idea about the Ampeg Stud guitar, never seen one myself, which is why it caught my attention enough to shoot. I was hoping someone would notice it
A HC review says that the Ampeg stud ge-100 (look at the truss rod cover) is plywood, 25.5 scale, fake inlays. Notice how the bridge humbucker isn't right next to the bridge, probably to be in the same spot as if on a 24.75 scale.
Probably balances like crap too being an SG copy...but still kinda neat
I like the little electric mandolin in the first pic. The Alembic guitar is pretty smecksy too. The Venture guitars are badass! The 4000 must have costs thousands! I really like the 2 12 string basses and the Conklin 7.
"Follow the yellow brick road."
Now there's something you don't see everyday. I'd hit it.
I meant 15 string. I can count, just the first thing that came to mind.
I've seen plenty of pictures, but it was my first experience playing them.
Through his Skjold Sound Amp, yes. Though I didn't tweak it, I loved it. I got that nervous jittery feeling were I thought I wasn't worthy, I didn't want to look stupid playing anything. Stage fright on a smaller level.
Any idea how much they wanted for the 4000? I was going to put a down payment on a condo, but now....
Dont remember at all. I think I remember reading someone else post a price about it, Ill see if I can find it.
