1 Ric12string 4 months ago And so, once again, the entire music industry has found its way back to Anaheim where all bask in the radiance from the bright lights of nearby Disneyland. From manufacturers to retailers, from artists to those in the recording industry, they all have made their individual pilgrimages to Anaheim for four glorious days in the warmth of Southern California and to pay homage to our favorite cartoon rodent.There will be, undoubtedly, much to report on from this year’s show. Even more so with the many questions which GDPers posted that they wanted to learn about from the Show this year. I don’t know if I can get to all of them, but I will certainly get to some of them.But, first – where is Geoff Vane? I see that he haunts social media, but he seems to rarely return to our favorite guitar forum. And what a shame because we are going to have some trivia contests. That is right – no Geoff Vane, which means a better chance for each of you. Shhh .... no one spill the beans to him.So, what is there to win? Well, mostly, there will be copies of the brand new 2019 Gretsch Guitars catalogue. All 148 pages of it, replete with huge, full color photos. Up close and personal kind of photographs. The kind that make you not want to put the catalogue down. Kind of like your parents’ Sears catalogue, right? So, before anything else, let’s get the first quiz underway...Who and what is the Nashville Gentleman? (I am looking for a very specific answer to this one.) Winners of quizzes (defined as the first correct response, using timestamps of posts if necessary to determine winners) will need to send me an email with their favorite shipping address with the US Mail service. If the winner is from Europe (that’s right Higgy, you guys and gals on the other side of the pond will have a chance to get a catalogue in your hands too!), then you must send to me your address, email and phone number. At the end of the Show, I will compile the names and address information for the folks at Gretsch and they will fulfill the prizes. I am told that it will happen promptly.So, you will send me your information if you are a winner to my email address which is [myscreennameontheGDP] @yahoo.com. Any questions? I didn’t think so. You guys are all too wide awake to not understand what is going on.
