    Guys if we where to do this again what should we do differently? 

    I'd suggest maybe having two rooms as the wall of sound got a bit much at times for me.

    We'd ask about parking before someone padlocked the car park i had driven into.

    I think 2 rooms is a good idea.

    Thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all and talking gear and playing. I think it was @sev112 who said "it's amazing how different everyone sounds playing the same gear.". Tone is in the fingers for sure. 


    FFS where did I park my truck? Definitely no flannel next time  :#

    Maybe we could all play together. I think we managed it for about 5 mins today :)

    You know, I don’t actually possess a plaid shirt. 
    But, I’d buy one for the next time we do this. 
    Thanks @Neilybob i really appreciate you organising the event, i really enjoyed it. 
    Sorry I was late, and for the amp stress, but got there in the end. 
    You all made that baritone sound phenomenal!!

    Agreed.  It turned into a bit of a mush after a while.

    Excellent day, though.  Thanks for organising @Neilybob !

    Thanks all and to Neil for pulling it together. It was raucous fun. I loved hearing the SV20 & sonus fuzz, that cool smallbox Marshall as well as playing the ES195, T-armond tele, destroyer and lots of other cool guitars. 

    Two rooms is a good idea

    I hope you called each other by your usernames all day, rather than 'proper' names?

    Gents thanks for letting me play on all your gear.

    Loved them all, but particularly @Winny_Pooh 's  Gretsch which was absolutely delightful to play fingerstyle on, then Winnie playing his jazzy stuff, then Soma playing rocky stuff - what a versatile and beautiful guitar ! 

    Really also loved @Neilybob 's Burny SG into @Jonathangus ' Marshall stack.    
    (And then hearing the same guitar through @Winny_Pooh 's Carr amp)

    But everyone brought something fun and quality, especially @lovestrat74 's works and that Tele which should be left handed given the fabulous textures and colours on the back

    Fab to meet some new people, and a few that we met before.  Hopefully more of these to come 

    Thanks for organising @Neilybob , who it turns out lives <4km from me !

    Yeah I wasn't expecting that from the Gretsch to be honest. 

    Big shout out to the Vintage VS6 as well, which if I am totally honest I genuinely preferred the sound and feel of in my rig over the Murphy Lab R6. 

    I see why @TheMarlin enjoys it so much.

    That's not me. That's @Neilybob. My 'f*ck Telecaster's top was hidden by my shirt.
