Does this show happen 1 or 2 times a year?  Also, do they carry accessory vendors or just guitars?  Thanks!

@ Edward - this will be two years in a row now when we'll have to miss too. We're heading to Canada from 11-18 for my hubby's family reunion. Guess where *I'd* rather be? =)
I hope you'll get lots of pix & info from the expo!!

Adriaan, I don't if you are for real or not, but your entry is hilarious. God bless you, man, you are a delightful addition to this group.  I hope you derive great joy from your amplified acoustic music.  I look forward to your future posts.

I thought to make this a "Discussion" but at this point it is more of a confession. I jsut installed a L.R. Baggs M1 Passive Acoustic Pickup to my 00-NY-16. Now I can hear the moans, and I am right with you, however...first let me say that it took me 3 hours. It is desigend for a sound hole bigger than 3.5 inches. Yes, I did read the manual, yes I purchased it anyway. I suppose that is why I was a Marine for 30 years. I just can't handle "can't very well. It hads the best 'specs.' Anyway. finally got it in without destroying the guitar or my enthusiasm...although I did spend a lot of the 3 hours in prayer. For reasons I am greatful and still not works.


Now I am not recommending this, just confessing it to clear my conscience. There are other pickups that are easier, and for the purest, I know I violated an almost Sacred Dictum...Acoustic means "without sound assistance" or something like that. At least now I have new strings on her and a freshly oiled finger board. Anyway, I am surprised by the quality of the sound and sensitivity. Maybe that is just self-gratification. Anyway I needed to use with my Vocalist Realtime Live 3 Vocal Harmony and Pitch Control Floor gizmo. Well, no bites on my "Gear" inquiry and I am tired of singing alone at home...since none of you all are here in Camilla, GA. I will let you know how it works, if anyone will still speak to me after reading this.


I did post a song of mine on My Page that I wrote and recorded playing my Martin a while back. IT is a bit rough, and maybe even not very good. But at least it is "Me and Molly Martin Music Maker." That was the name of my One-Man Music Maker in Isolation Group Name. That is another story.

Since it's a relatively new model line, I haven't found a lot of youtube demos for the Martin "Performing Artist" guitars.  There are several out for the ultra-pricey PA-1 models, but so far not a lot for the much more affordable PA-4's ... here's one I saw this morning that provides a pretty good demo/comparison.
