London Guitar Show-See ye there!
« on: May 02, 2006, 11:16:36 AM »
Hello, bareknucklers...
It's been a while since I've been active in this forum-
Been active with my band,playing some shows with Boltthrower on the Scandinavian leg of their tour, & for better or worse, drowning in guitar repairs-
I'm glad for the income, but hoping to pick up the pace of my new building in the coming year.

I wanted to say that I'll be making an appearance at the London Guitar Show, exhibiting 2/3 guitars at the BK stand, and hope to meet some of you from the forum at the show.
I'm really excited for the invite from Tim, and to meet him, Steve, and others from the house of Knuckles Bare...
 I NEED to get out of my shop, and meet other that are as enthusiastic as I am about custom guitars-
I love Denmark, but the lukewarm enthusiasm of the Danes is OK at best, and if I'm to breakout to the next level, it's going to mean thinking more globally, and this show is a step in that direction...

  Have put my excursion together in the 11th hour, in true Drac style, and my plans are to bring the Ipsissimus twins, the purple heart Wraith, & my toothbrush- literally all I think I can carry-cross yer fingers I make it!

  All axes are fitted out with BK pickups, and will be ready for groping & manhandling. With any luck, I may part with them for a nice price at the end of the show-cases and all- and travel lighter back home to DK after the dust settles...we'll see about that!  -
Also thought to bring the Vorpal blade Vee-My personal #1 axe, but I don't think I can part with it at this point-wanted to bring axes that I COULD sell, if able...Considered the Gibrium Lawsuit SG extreme makeover axe, but as Gibson will also be there, I shot that idea down in flames too...Have to show a little respect. Too bad 'cause it's a Gibson-killer that fell from grace , and "eyecandy" , too...DAMN.

  Back to work, but checking in intermittantly all the way up to my departure on Thursday morning-Would love to hear from any others that will be attending, and looking for some trouble to get into Thursday night as well-I'll be quartered in Brent, walking distance from the LGS-

Drop me a line if you dare-
Best regards from Drac,
& hope to see ye @ the Gig!

Glad to see you back.

What days are you going to be there?

I ask because unless something even worse happens to be aside from my broken leg, I'll be there on Saturday.

I've just bought some padding for my crutches (and Wembley hires wheelchairs if all else fails) so I'll see ya soon.

I'd be well up for a beer to as I'm local to Brent but I'm staying sober till I can walk on both feet!

Drac, those are some crazy ass axes!  :twisted:

Guys I REALLY wish I would be "home" for this, darn darn darn!!!!!!!!

Anyway, as I won't be there :( and it is just around corner = I will have to wait another whole year GRRRRRRRRR, please have fun and have a beer for me!

And Drac, to heck with gibson, they need some MAJOR shaking up and to actually Hire a QC dept. Maybe if you and Feline show YOUR proper "gibsons" they may take notice of how a REAL guitar should be (and for those thinking I am Gibbo bashing, firstly Ya Boo Sucks, and secondly, I own a '91 Les Paul Standard ((which took forever to find a "good" one and then still needed work)).

ok guys, the 10% chance just jumped up to almost 100

but i gotta know a few things:

could someone potentialy pick me up @ gatwick? on saturday morning at around 9am(or i'll just take a cab, just tell me what i gotta tell the dude)
or at least drive me back to gatwick on sunday evening.
i pay fer petrol.


and, if ben and phil arent able to take my silly ass in for the night of saturday -> sunday, is anybody willing to let me use their couch/floor/backyard/doghouse for the night?
i'm potty trained and dont drool (much - and that only when looking at sexay gear)

the air fare is only 200euro for the 2 days so i figger, what the hell, its an once in a lifetime experience to get to know you folks.. unless we make it an annual experience.


and how much is a daily ticket at the door?



now i just gotta find out how to get TO the airport here.. and get permission from the boss  :D
