Okay, in an attempt to keep other threads clear, here is where we can discuss our upcoming BK jam & drink!

First, the date: OCTOBER 21, 2006
The location: Probably NYC, but we may move this to Hoboken for reasons that we will discuss.

The agenda: Bring a BKP equipped axe or two for other forum bros to wail on!!

I would like to get a roll call here of who is attending, and what guitars you are bringing.

I have guitars with:
VHII
Miracle Man/Irish Tour
Cold Sweat/Trilogy

And possibly by the 21st:
Riff Raff/Stormy Monday

1. I will bring my SG with Warpig bridge and Mississippi Queen neck.  
2. Would like Phil's HSH Nailbomb/Irish guitar for a friend to check out.

I have no problem driving to jersey.  It will just cut my drinking qty....lol

If we are in NY I can bring the Nailbomb guitar and a PRS with Rebel Yells.  If we are in Hoboken, then there are lots of BK equiped guitars!
So many pickups, so little time

I can travel to either place, however, I do not yet possess a guitar with BK's. I could bring a Strat with either Fraylins or Duncanís. The SG I am working on is the one the BK's are going into; I did a repair and refinish job on it and I am looking to make the SG more  of a rock than blues sounding guitar. I am looking forward to the sound sample and throwingback a pint or two.

Twilight, I listened to your band on your web site and liked what I heard, I am not going to impress with my playing but I am interested to hear the different BK pup's and listen to you all play.

Don't worry if you don't have any BK equipped guitars. There will be plenty to go around!

As for location, maybe we can set up your downstairs Living Room with my Splawn and a couple of your amps, Phil?

That way we will have access to --

- a ton of guitars
- several great amps
- proper ale!

Phil's place is literally 10-15 min outside Manhattan. He lives closer to the city than I do!

Phil's place also has a great sitting room with proper hi-fi for chilling and listening to music! (even if the spkrs are a bit dodgy PDT_008)

No problem.  I'll send Neeta away for the day  :lol:

What will you want to use for a cab for the Splawn?

For me it does save a lot of decisions on which guitar to bring.

I know you like the Joseph's really - at least my set!!!

We can also get good Pizza from the end of the block to go with the ale (I see all my Samuel Smith and Youngs vanishing if I don't stuff you with food!!).
So many pickups, so little time

I'm not only going to hear different BKP's but to take in as much playing information as possible.  Like I said, I am basically a power chord player (cant solo even the least) so this will be a great break to learn some technique and proper playing....lol

If it is decided to have this shindig @ Phil's, then we should come up with stuff to bring (beer, food, snacks, etc..) excluding Phil of course since he's offering his place...chris

No way! Neta's cool! (and v. pretty! ;) )
Though I suspect all the guitar playing will drive her insane!!!

Agreed!

Tho Phil will have to bring the beer & we will chip in. He knows what to get.
