Juston, you could bring anything from your collection and it would draw a crowd! I'd love to see and hear the Circa, for instance. Or the Brondel, or . . .

Having recently sampled, albeit very briefly, all the guitars in your immodest collection, Juston, I say take the Brondel. What a fantastic player, with a neck to die for!

Hey Joseph--B.I.G. is an international guitar festival held in Spring Branch, Texas being hosted on by AGF's very own Tom B'Sox!

Hey there, yes as Nemoman said, we are having a guitar show at our home in Spring Branch Texas next March 30-31st. John Thomas is coming with his WWII Gibson. Justin is coming as well. We have 7 luthiers, Michael Watts from England, workshops, concerts, a seminar by Bruce Sexauer regarding building techniques, John Thomas will be playing and lecturing on vintage Gibsons, Texas BBQ, an adult beverage or two, and lots of great AGF folks coming with their own guitars for jams and just trying each other's stuff. There is the thread and feel free to email me or PM for more info. How great would it be if the two Fairbanks could meet the original so we could compare them all side by side!!!!

Thanks so much for sharing the progress pics!

That wonderful label reminded me that we lost one of the Gals this week. The woman who signed your label is the last surviving of these "intrepid, unpretentious, stunningly skillful, thoroughly American women," as Jonathan Kellerman put it in my book's foreword.
