    Thank you, you are too generous! Really enjoyed chatting with you and playing through the pedal amp. Get ready because it will sell like hotcakes!

    BTW real name is Victor, but yeah, CharAznable is pronounced exactly as Charles Aznavour!

    Glad somebody wasn't afraid to try the beast! You are an incredible player. I'd also like to echo Vlad's sentiment and say thanks to Steve for hosting such a great event, there was a wealth of great gear in the room. It's always fun to get together with fellow gear nerds.

    I loved the looks of that lemon PRS 594, but I didn't know who it belonged to! I was afraid to touch it without permission, but really hope to play one some day.

    The PRS 594 was mine. I'm going to be in Italy for a couple of weeks but if you would like to try it after I get back we can arrange to meet.

    Sorry Victor your handle threw me a bit. I'll remember from now on.

    That would be really nice if they sold well. I did what I could to keep the price as low as possible without sacrificing tone. I'm using my own custom design transformers from Heyboer and Ice. Also using quality parts throughout. I won't have much profit per amp sold but if I sell enough I might do alright. I also designed them to be buildable in a timely way so that if I do get a lot of orders I shouldn't get backed up. I hate making customers wait. In fact I could have released it a long time ago but I was working on making it manufacturable. Thanks for you interest.

    Sorry I couldn't make it; family matters prevailed.

    You have your priorities right. Family is always the most important thing.

    With Steve moving soon to Italy, this event may well have been the last of its kind for the local TGP'ers. I will admit I was disappointed the attendance wasn't higher considering how many people posted beforehand they would be coming but surely no personal judgments on that, just noting it. If we do ever have a reprise, I assume we'll need another venue and a new fearless leader for it.

    The Community Center in my development is only available to residents. The American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 in Vienna has a hall and several large meeting rooms available for rentals that would be suitable. There are also several VFW posts in the area that have rental halls available. Another possibility would be renting Jammin' Java or someplace similar for an afternoon.

    I thought Steve was only going to be a part timer in Italy. We are losing him permanently? That will made me sad.

    My wife and I are planning to retire at the end of the year. We will be living in Italy 10 months of the year, but we'll be back from November to early January for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

    I was a true honor to have met and spent time with you Steve. You are the very definition of a class act. I hope you and your wife enjoy Italy to the fullest extent.

    Wow, that sounds incredible! I'd love to even just visit Italy, let alone retire there.

    You definitely don't want to travel with that delicate PRS 594. I'm happy to keep it at my place for those 10 months out of the year. You know, just trying to be helpful, here.

    Hey, pals, I'm trying to call Lance Hallam but my old number I have for him just rings and rings without going to a voicemail box and he didn't answer my Conversation (sent just yesterday, admittedly, but it cost him a jam invite!). If you have Lance's contact info. could you send it to me, please? Thanks.

    I loved the sound of your pedal/amp! Are you going to put up any clips on YouTube or on your website?
