I could talk about rain too, but I'd rather reminisce about the glorious Pacific NW summers.

Looks like a remarkably planned event that will go by much too fast !

Wish I could attend, but not to be this year.

Best wishes to the hosts and all attendees.

Thanks Brad and McD....

Please note the schedule is set up so none of the demos, lessons or workshops or concerts overlap so you can do as many or as few as you wish.

I would just like to say, with no disrespect to any of our performers, but I was just made aware last night that Karlijn was voted the 6th best acoustic guitar player in the world by Musicradar and she will be playing Friday night and doing some demos as well!!!

Impressive lineup indeed. Great performers and an intimidating group of luthiers. I'm motivated to bring something special.

My hope is more than 50 and less than 100. We still have room within that window although private lessons with Tony are just about full.

Yes, 2 months is not that long now!!! Everything should be in place on our end!

I thought I would start to show a few guitars being built just for the show.

To start it off, here is something Mr. Sherriff from Edwinson guitars is cooking up. BRW with German Spruce in a parlor on steroids shape called the Siren, 13 14 inch lower bout, name after the mesmerizing tone it produces!
