Time to start doing even more of my originals at my senior and Healthcare gigs. Best to be up to speed!!! I am stoked to be playing for this way cool extravaganza ! And very happy Cindy can come and sing with me, which does add to the fun factor considerably.

And I will be bringing one of my WAY Custom John Kinnaird guitars. Which I will gladly show and tell with any interested folks. (Like Andy)

Thank You Tom AND KATHY! for putting this together!

I so look forward to Finally meeting so many AGF folks...

Cheers

Paul
Thanks Paul, I know we got rave reviews from our talent scouts when scouring the California coast for talent. You and Cindy came very highly recommended and the producers were very pleased to sign you to the bill!!!!

I know you will do that J. Kinnaird proud. He was going to be there, but had a conflict that he had forgotten about. I am sure you will represent well. If we do this again next year, he wants in!

Thanks. I actually live in Driftwood which is a little closer at least as the crow flies. I do know where it is. We usually go to S.A via 281.

Ok, do I come out early and get in trouble at Austin Guitar House? This should be an amazing event, and it will be a treat to meet so many of the AGF crew that have only been screen names and guitar posts.

Thank you all who have reached out and reserved your spots. I would be remiss if I did not say we are about 1/3 full at this point already, so if interested reach out to me. Still lots of time, but I have a feeling as we get closer and the luthiers start posting the cool builds they have planned for this, we will fill up even more quickly. I have been told about some of the builds and I am really excited. Think BRW and Euro for one, Coco with Adi on another...just sayin.

I was just reminded by one confirmed attendee about the Friday afternoon Collings factory tours in Austin that are offered. That would be a really cool start to the weekend...I copied this from their website:

Tours take place each Friday at 3:30pm and tour sizes are limited so reservations are required. Because our tours often fill up about a week in advance, we recommend calling the shop at 512-288-7776 to reserve your space as early as possible.

If I did not have so much in the works right now with everything else I would try to set up a special B.I.G. tour, but I think for this first year, folks will have to be on their own for this, but what a great chance to do this if you are coming in from out of town!!!

Think about it.

Dang Tom - why did you wait until moving to TX before doing this!?? I suppose we have Woodstock, but this sounds even better :-)

My parents lived in New Braunfels in their later years ... it's a beautiful area, especially at that time of year! Hope there will be lots of pictures and perhaps some videos so we can get a small virtual taste anyway ...

John

Well, that is perfect, you know the area. Come on down, flights are easy into San Antonio or Austin, I do it all the time. I leave from Albany and am there by 11:15 AM! Take the Collings tour, get yourself a B&B in New Braunfels, grab lunch at the Gristmill in Greune, take in some free music at the historic Greune music hall and then a weekend surrounded by guitar freaks such as yourself and make it a destination!!!! We have lots of people coming from the East coast to far, join the club!!!!

The Colling tour sounds great! I've been looking at one of their electric models, a 290, but there are none local to play. It would be great if they also have a "petting zoo" where people can sample guitars, much like at the Martin factory. Do you know if this location makes both electric and acoustic guitars?
