Thanks Mark ... I'm planning on coming ... I'll probably hook up with Mike Nepper and come over the hill with him.

See you Sunday.

Hey Mark,

I know a lot about photoshop and digital imaging and that photo looks great.

No, I am not in the Bay area, as a matter of fact, I am about as far away as you can get...I live just outside of Baltimore Maryland!  I have never been to CA, I have only been as far as Vegas.  I really love my JF30, it's a 1990 with a factory installed Fishman pickup.  These days my main stage 6 string is a Gibson J100extra from 1994, but the JF30 gets stage time too as it's tuned down a whole step for songs like McCartney's Yesterday, basically songs I can't sing high enough for!   Edward

Hi Mark,
I see you own a Guild JF 30 too! I have a JF 30 just like yours (a 1990 I think). I also have a 1980 Guild JF212XL 12 string...if you ever get a need for a 12 string, stick with Guild as they are the best! If you get a chance to visit my wegbsite, feel free to leave a message in my Guestbook! Thanks, Edward
