I'll be attending this and driving down. If anyone is from the Northants area (or MK or Luton, I've gotta go thru those to get there) then I can pick up and drop off if you're willing to split petrol?

I'll be bringing both my shagged non-BKP Gibsons to the meet.

I'm very close to MK and Luton... but work commitments mean I can't really give a final answer until the day before - would it be ok to come back to that offer in a few weeks?

Yeah that'd be fine, just let me know.

Paddy
GREAT GOOGILY MOOGILY!

Does Tom live nearby to you? Perhaps he might want a lift.  :)

Yep, if he reads this then all he has to do is let me know and He'll be coming down too!

Nice one Paddy.  :D

I'm coming down from North London, I'll have a lot of gear in the car but I can give a lift to anyone who needs it with a few guitars too.

I really want to come to this, but need to swap a callout shift at work first, so for now I'm a "Tentative".

If I can make it, does anyone have any particular requests for what I bring?  I'm thinking my full Engl Savage + brutal 4x12" setup, a pedalboard & one or two guitars.  Or I could just bring the SE preamp/MJW Goldstar & a few more guitars and just use whatever cabs are there.  Problem is, I can't fit my 4x12 plus the larger Jackson cases in the car at the same time...

George - remember we are upstairs!
Humping 4x12s may  be irksome

I will be showing quite a few guitars too - not sure how many yet

George, the studio will have 4x12 cabs for hire. It depends how your Engl sounds through your cab. You may want to hear it flat out with he Engl cab.
I'm taking my cab. It would be interesting to hear the differences of the amps  

Can't you put the guitar cases on the back seat and the amp and cab in the boot or use the rear foot wells?  :)
Humping 4x12s up the stairs is no problem for two of us. My back is a hell of a lot better than the meet we had last year. (I had to get Philly and gWem to carry my Koch up the stairs!)

Edit could you borrow a car with more space?

Well, the whole point of bringing the Engl would be to show the entire rig off - the CL80/K100 brutal cab is a big part of the sound (it's not half as nice into V30s).  I've carried the 4x12 up stairs on my own before so I know I can do it.

It's an either/or choice between Jacksons & the Engl cab in my car: the only place the Jacksons will fit is in the rear footwell with the back seat up or lengthways with the back seat down.  The 4x12 needs the back seat down but takes almost the whole width (so I can't fit in a Jackson as well).  If I bring the full Engl rig, I'm limited to a few strat/soloist/LP/PRS sized cases in the passenger seat.

Anyway, let's see if I can get my shift swapped out before I start making any plans :)

:lol:  You just had to start this again didn't you?

George, how many guitars with the full Engl rig can you get in the car? Even if you get a couple in, it has to be worth it.
I'd love to hear it. Especially after you fitted new valves.

It should be very good for amps so far with the Engl, Engnator and Koch.

At least 3, maybe as many as 5

It's only the larger Jackson cases I can't bring (which rules out my RR1T, KV2 & Kelly) but that still leaves a dozen or so other guitars to choose from :)

Guys - one thing to keep in mind if bringing a lot of guitars is that because the invitation has been thrown open to folks that we may not have met before (and Afghan Dave also put it up on Facebook) is that we must give more thought to security - keeping a watchful eye out for each other's stuff etc.

Last thing we want is for someone unknown (or known) to take advantage of a situation and walk off with someone else's guitar.
