    Have a great time everyone. I`m sure it will be wonderful.
    I really wanted to attend. I did all I could to make it happen but it just isn`t possible.

    Hopefully next year.

    Yep :)

    Right now the list stands at, a special Banshee, starliner semi hollow, Acadian, Arcturus (with mastery and wide ranges) and a very special Argonaut. I may also have a Daylighter express supreme and a starliner express.

    Awesome!

    Teaser of a things getting near completion. Honestly, I'll probably be the most boring builder there.

    Can't wait to see what he brings this year. He's always in my favorite 2-3 builders at Montreal every year.

    I can't promise anything but I'm thinking of making a report like my NAMM and other trade show reports.
    For example:
    http://www.nermark.com/reports/NAMM_Winter_2014/NAMM_Winter_2014.htm

    If you have any suggestions, let me know and I'll consider them.

    Cheers,

    As I said, no promises but I'll do my very best to find the time to make it happen.

    I'm sort of intimidated by the size of the thing. With 110 luthiers and they each will probably will bring at least 5 instruments each. That's at least 550 instruments to cover. I can almost guarantee that I will miss out on a few builders.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Seriously, no pressure whatsoever! Anything you can get and post is a bonus as far as I'm concerned. You're there to enjoy rather than work, right?!

    Good to read that some of you are planning to attend to the Premiere of this show :)

    We also just published the rest of the programm on the website. There will be some great lectures on various topics, as well as demo concerts. In a word, a whole lot of stuff to look at, to play with, and to listen at :)

    here it goes:

    See you in Berlin

    (now I'd better get busy building guitars for the show... When I see Doug having almost all guitars already mounted, I'm getting anxious ^^)
