Default 2019 Artisan Guitar Show

Saw and played a lot of guitars. Got to play the McKnight pencil guitar - fine guitar, Laurent Brondel's guitars and many others. Got to play some guitars I couldn't every imagine spending that kind of money on but can now say "I played a Kostal" - and what a nice guy he was. Spent a lot of time in this booth - Bruce Sexauer

I was there Saturday, but didn't take my camera. In retrospect, I should have taken it. There were a multitude of fine guitars and master builders, and I did meet a few AGF members.

Did any of you happen to check out the new Venus model by Kathy Wingert. It looked interesting when she posted it on Facebook. Would love to hear from folks who got a chance to check it out.

Best,
Jayne

It was on my list and I waited till the end of the show when it wasn't crowded but every time she got a break she tried to eat a bite of sandwich and then someone else would come into her booth to talk so that's when I went to Jason Kostal's booth next door.
