Went to the GAL exhibit in Tacoma with Carl. We spent about an hour perusing the exhibits, which included luthiers and suppliers. Stew Mac and LMI were there along with a bunch of tonewood suppliers. If I was looking for particular woods that I wanted to hold and select, this would have been perfect. But, in the end, the only purchase I made was for some nicer paua for the rosette for the koa parlor.


I met Charles Fox and Denise Fox, who will host the guitar building seminar I attend next week. Seems they’ve had a last minute cancellation (anyone out there want to attend? See my ASL link for more info). Saw Rob Girdis, and a whole range of instruments from the simple to the ornate, from questionable quality to exceptional quality.
