chinese huh? very cool. i am only know cantonese. i really need to learn some mandarin.

racer x - i still have your cell number. i will call you when i am there.

i am really excited to go this year. since i have been doing the fingerstyle playing i am looking forward to trying out the different acoustic guitars. i was at the guitar center yesterdy and i played a used collings and two used santa cruz and wow, great guitars. i have never played a santa cruz guitar and i am impressed. sam ash in hollywood moved their acoustic guitar upstairs into a much bigger room so now they have a really nice set up.

 Ed Roman hasn't seen his own ass in decades. That dude is a double wide crazy actin'  Jabba the guitar dealer. Very odd fish from all accounts.

If you are into archtop guitars, stop by Tom Ribekke's booth. Awesome work.

Goodal gutiars are amazing. I played a $5000 one a few years ago at McCabes and it sounded like it had a built in reverb system in it. Just fucking incredible sound.

The best acoustic guitar store I've ever been at is Buffalo Brother Guitars

I bought my Northwood Orchestral Acoustic guitar there. Unreal selection, McCabes has mabye 5% of the guitars that this place has. You have to visit it if you haven't been there before. Really nice people there as well (unlike McCabes). It is about 100 miles south of Los Angeles and 50 miles north of San Diego in Carlsbad, CA.
