Default Orlando Guitar Show

Anyone else going this weekend? I have bought a few guitars there over the years and I enjoy the exotic instruments on display.

I am in the area, but did not go ... just couldn't find the time.

For future reference, is it worth the trip? Is it vintage guitars at bargain price or vintage guitars at we-name-our-price-and-you-will-pay-what-we-ask-or-get-the-hell-away-from-my-booth?

Also, is it the kind of show where you can walk around and play them or is it eyes only, no hands?

Yes, you can freely play as many guitars as you like which is my primary reason for going.
I have both bought and sold guitars there so you might find a new guitar for a good price. Also, you may see some known players there. This year, I saw Roy Bookbinder and I have seen Rick Derringer. The downside is the noise from the electric guitars which makes it hard to evaluate the acoustics. It is not the Arlington show, "but baby it's the next best thing ' to quote Steve Goodman.
