    I wish I could. I know Luthiers Access Group will be fairly represented. And, from what I heard Dan's bringing, which I can't reveal, I REALLY wish I were going!:(

    I think I might be going. Does anyone know what kind of stuff is going to be there?

    RAM, that's just mean man. My curiosity is killing me! Let us know after the show what Dan has.

    Last time I went (two years ago) it was pretty nice. I got to play a lot of instruments I would never have had a chance to see before. I think somebody had Ritter there. I picked up a few good videos.

    Peace,

    Well, I can't remember all the details, but I believe an unnamed builder has a couple of 2-string basses there. Dan said last time he had them, people would come by and laugh. Then, when they'd pick up the basses and find they're more than playable, they'd laugh even harder.

    I think, IIRC, one is cocobolo and the other is purpleheart. He said he thought it would be a good wood experiment.

    There's supposed to be other good stuff there, too.

    I've played one of those 2-stringers from that mystery builder (don't you love it when you're on the inside looking out!) :D ;) . I was amazed when I saw it and almost ordered one. I've since decided to get a couple full-sized models, but it would be great for someone living in a dorm room, who travels a lot and wants to still be able to play, or who is looking for a conversation piece to pluck on stage.

    AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH......

    That builder lives just a couple of towns over from me. Is that too much information?:D

    Those two strings are so cool!
