Dang....I'm in Monterey (Laguna Seca) again for work, but I'm stuck here all weekend, can't go a little north to make it there. :(

Enjoy!

I hope to make it by for an hour or two. It's a mere stone's throw away. :) Hmmm, I wonder if there's anything I need ...

Just got back from the show, met Dan and exchanged niceties. It was a fun show but a bit of lean pickings for Rick fans. A high point was a 345 Capri and an early 365WB. Some good deals to be had but alas, my piggy bank is too hungry for me to have taken anything home. I think Dan will have some pics for us when he checks in.

It was great to see Kira and meet Jasmine at the show. Most of these shows are a little light on Ricks, but truth be told, there are just a lot more Fenders and Gibsons out there to be had. That being said, there were some beauties.

I took a few pictures, I thought the 370RM model was more reasonably priced than some we've seen in the past. They had a '61 365 OS (although it had crushed pearl inlays so I'm not sure it was from '61, picture below - $9500). The Capri was nice too. There were a few Basses, a few Fakers, a nice '80's 360 WB (Fireglo), and a few others.

Hey John,

I did not. However on his website he is asking $5,950 for it. Here's a link to his site:
