I am beginning to believe that I am actually Brain Dead. I ahve had a gnawing bad feeling in ny brain and finally decided to use a flashlight instead of my memory. I found out, much to my embarrassment that I have a 0-16 NY rather than whatever I had written or said previously. I also appreciate the fact that you have been very forgiving and not slicing me open in the group. I believe I ahve it right now. Anyway, all previous references are for a 0-16 NY Martin guitar that I have and am the only owner of since I was 15 years old. I am now 67. I am afraid of doing the math. Thanks and Mea Culpa !

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.
