Speaking of variety, I am open to requests for instruments for me to bring with me besides my two "standards", my 460 BG and 370/12RM FG that I will (of course) be bringing. I probably will have room for one, two, or possibly three, more basses or guitars.

Do you have a 480/481? I've been wanting to get one 'cause I just love the look, and would sure like to check one out...

LOL Paulie, you can see those at any time! :lol: I was actually directing the comment to the Northerners (or non-SoCal travelers), not to those within driving distance of me! :roll: :lol:

Can do the 480.

My 481 is in a state of repair because I am fixing the messed-up wiring on it. I doubt whether I can get done with it before the event. :(

well, looks like my guitar is going to be officially babysat by paul while i'm over in fl. which is actually a relief because i live in an apartment building and i think i'd be worrying about some freak fire or door lock malfunction.

anyway, it seems like there really are a fair amount of travellers coming. seriously- if anyone wants to get dinner or a drink friday night, i'm game! i work in the city, live in the east bay, pretty mobile, my flight leaves at 11am, no serious curfew. none of my friends are into guitars so it'd be nice to "talk shop"!

But who else has a factory 370/12 V64? :D

Also, the bridge p/up on your PT model is especially "hot"; that thing really sings! 8)

Gary, I weuld agree with Paulie's suggestion that, if you have room, those would be two unique Rics to bring. They would certainly enhance the Confluence experience for many BARC attendees !!!

And as several of us had said before, your 8) Towsend model likely has the hottest Ric pick-up ever made. Seeing and hearing that alone, would be worth the price of admission for many BARCers !! :) :wink:

Bad News...

Oh man, I really hate to have to do this. It seems that I will not be able to make it to BARC after all. Dang it, dang it, dang it!!!!!
:cry: :cry:

After having everything all arranged and approved, someone at work decided they needed to quit and it would seem that I'm the only one who can take over the work on this highly critical project. So, I've been informed that my vacation has been cancelled.
:evil: :evil: :evil:

Well, I suppose it's good to still have a job (and if I want to keep it, I ain't takin' a vacation in April), but it definitely sucks when it comes to how much fun it would have been to go to BARC...
:x

Well, perhaps I can make it to SCARF later in the year...

Yeah, MAJOR bummer... I just got off the phone after a long talk with my boss, and it just ain't gonna happen. It was a bit of a push already due to the schedule, but now with one less guy, it's a definite no go...

I'm really sorry to hear that CJ. Was looking forward to meeting another country boy Rick fan. And Jessica--you're missing out! We'll try to take good pics again.
If it is to be, it is up to me.
