    I was in Montreal last week. Figures I'd miss this, and the chance to meet Jim Soloway, by a few days :puh

    The clinic was fun and the show is probably the best guitar show I've ever been too. The collection of great instruments (mostly acoustic and archtop) is unbelievable.

    No film, just a few photos and I'm not sure who took those.

    As for Montreal, my wife has absoutely fallen in love with it (me too). It helps that we're here during great weather and right in the middle of one of the world's greatest music festivals, but this really is an incredible city.

    We left the better part of the recording gear for another time so I brought all our musical instrument stuff:

    Suhr/CAA
    Vigier
    Diezel
    Dave Smith Instruments
    Lehle
    Auralex Acoustics
    and the first pair of ADAM A7 monitors in Canada (sweet!!!!)
    Evidence Cables

    I also brought my own Heritage H575, Kenny Burrell Combo, and a partsocaster with a Suhr BPSSC installed.

    We were soooo busy yesterday, I had no time to lament the fact that i couldn't beg off to see Pat Martino .....and of course, the lucky few that did, all called to remind me this morning:rotflmao

    I haven't made it up to the luthiers area because I, a) haven't had time and b) found someone I trust to hold my wallet for me while I go.

    I must see John Jorgenson!!!!!!

    anyway, we're booth #2, behind the great wall of Apple and next to those sharp dressed piano salespeople plugging their ears:Devil

    Cu there!!!
