Post-Memphis guitar show report

michael bashkin

I am back from The Memphis Guitar Show and it was great to see so many friends and great guitars.  The show was at the Hilton outside of Memphis, but I did make it to downtown a few nights as well as tour Graceland.  Thanks to Jack, my new dealer in Shanghai, China who took the SJ-14 fret.  And also thanks to Bob Singer and the staff for putting on the show, as well as Al Petteway who performed the Bashkin guitars concert demo.
