Mr. K;

A brave man you are. If you get lost and don't report back in, we'll look for you in video coverage. Good luck.

No video this year except for a wee bit of piano playing... just some photos... wanted an easier time here. Visit with some folks and not have to zip all over the place trying catch shows and things.. sorry

Funny watching a video from NAMM on Martin's NEW model that incorporates a new ergonomic cutaway. This is a feature we all have enjoyed on our Emeralds, Cargos, McPhersons, Blackbirds for years... :-)

Is he sure?? He may know more about the CF revolution than just about anyone on this forum, but you may have him on this one. But who knows, he's tricky.
