Dallas Guitar Show, 2009- Pt. 2

Dallas Guitar Show, 2009- Pt. 2

Of course, by being the biggest guitar show of the year, it takes us two parts to tell everything we did and saw- let's start with a set of blondes....

  • Photo 1. Ricky's boys, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson stopped by the booth on Sunday with a few goodies. They were very cool and posed for pictures and autographs. Now, if we could only get into that huge pile of custom Jackons they have from back in the hair days!
  • Photo 2. Using the beta capsule, Hiyata becomes Ultra Man.....
  • Photo 3. For a split second, I considered becoming a show valet and taking Sunday afternoon off. Just as I was walking towards this car, my phone rang, breaking me out of my trance. I'd like to persoanlly thank my wife for ruining my chance to see how fast I really could hop over to Ft. Worth and back. Thanks a ton, Hon...
  • Photo 4. And, the winner of the "Longest Time without Smiling" conest is, Mr. Johnny A. himself. Believe it.
  • Photo 5. I was taking a break upstairs in the back of the hall on Saturday when I heard somebody gettin' down in one of the small practice rooms. Any other place on Earth, the sight of Eric Johnson tearing the frets off a '60 'Burst would be something special but in Texas, it's just another day at a guitar show.
  • Photo 6. This is Bunny and Sassy, the official Texas 'Elkettes. They were selling raffle tickets during the show but I'll be darned if we can remember what it was for. It doesn't matter- you should have seen me trying to explain to my dear wife the inclusion of this photo. It went something like, "No really Honey, they're just mascots" and then I don't remember anything else....
  • Photo 7. We live near Atlanta, so the saying at the bottom of this banner holds a special place in our hearts.
  • Photo 8. Young Jedidiah Herschberger swore that one day, he'd make his escape from that awful Amish rocking chair factory he'd been working in since the age of 7. It was on this weekend that he made good on that promise and he, along with a very quiet chap named George showed up in the big city of Dallas to find fame and fortune. No kidding, this guy walked into the Dallas show with a wooden trunk packed with 100 dollar bills and proceeded to buy up everything he could get his hands on. There must have been over 75 guitars and amps under his booth table and the last we saw of him and his buddy, George was on Sunday as we pulled out to head home. There they were, loading all those axes onto a mule- powered wagon with a reflective triangle on the back. Our guess is they should just be making it home by now....
  • Photo 9. Even in Texas, a pimp's gotta make that dollar. Here's double OG, triple OG, double OG moving at speed because he heard a siren. Funny thing is, it wasn't the police he heard coming, but a Dallas ice cream truck...
