  • Just got back home to Phoenix from my former stomping ground Chicago. I had a great time at the Chicago cbg group's first annual meet up. The Grafton is a cool pub, the weather was picture perfect and that part of the city has a very cool vibe. Here's a group shot of everyone

    that turned up.
  • Great to see you all yesterday, big big thanks to Diane for doing the legwork.

    Post your RSVPs here, kids!

    And think about stuff you have you'd like to trade. Maybe some odd tuners, maybe some fingerboard stock too narrow for what you build, maybe piezos because you have too many to use in a lifetime (me!) , . . .
  • Miles Raymer from the Chicago Reader is coming - he's a player and has a blues-stick of mine.
  • Sorry for the lateness, I'll be there.
