Fall Philly, 2009- The Show, Part II

Fall Philly, 2009- The Show, Part II

  • Photo 1. This is the 'Elk Booth, in all it's glory. Seeing as how it was a "Les Paul" weekend, we decided to bring nothing but 'Pauls to the show as a tribute. Most of the attendees thought it was a grand idea, but somehow, that pesky Brazilian Rossington SG snuck in there. Someone always has to spike the punch, don't they?
  • Photo 2. Peter Criss, formerly of that small band from New York, KISS made a rare public appearance. He signed autographs and told old KISS stories, one being about the time Gene and Paul got into a fistfight over who was going to get the last chocolate- covered doughnut backstage before one of the shows on the "Dynasty" tour. Gene won and let's just say that instead of spitting blood that night, he had a chocolate- covered bass after his solo....
  • Photo 3. This quiet and unassuming gentleman is one Mr. Larry Meiners. He's always affable, friendly and known in certain circles for writing a book or two, especially about that semi- popular guitar known as the "Flying V". Wanna see something funny? Fold a dollar bill into the shape of a "V", tie it to a fishing line and pull it across the floor in front of a guitar show. The words, "greasy fast lightnin' cannot even begin to describe the events of the next few minutes...
  • Photo 4. Yes, even "The King" made an appearrance at the show that weekend, disguised as a manual labor Union worker. In Philly, the job pays about fifty bucks an hour, so how can we blame him. Besides, his wig bill must be enough to bankrupt the salary cap of a professional football team by now....
  • Photo 5. Mr. Kenn Pierog, 'Elk Nation member in good standing made his bi- annual stop- in and tried to scoop one of our hallowed Goldtops. That is, until we told him that it was not Murphy- aged, but rather weather- checked from its trip from China. He was still going to buy it until we told him that we would only accept USPS money orders or Yen. He paid us in Yen anyway.....
  • Photo 6. The boys from Olivia's Vintage showed up, but were so tired from pushing that huge trailer full of guitars, they couldn't do much more than nap. Lee and I felt so sorry for them, we've decided to take their entire inventory on consignment at half- price, two- for- one, garage blowout, Winter special, trunk- gypsy swap- meet prices. Heck, make us an offer- we'll even trade a new Rickenbacker for a puppy!
  • Photo 7. Rod "The God" Norwood, layin' out some blues on what he thought was a prototype Aloha Strat. All was fine and Rod was taering the frets off of this thing until his partner in crime, Hank "Swisher Sweet" Sable rolled up. Rod held this guitar up and exclaimed, "Hey Hank, look what I got". Chaos ensued, cigar ashes flew and the words "Heavens to Mergatroid" still ring in our ears....
