    So any point in arriving a bit early, like 3:30, to enhance parking odds and be first in line?

    Sadly I had to head home early but I wanted to take a moment to say a few things.

    1) If you have been on the fence about going to the Experience let me just say this was an A M A Z I N G Experience, it was my 1st and definitely will not be my last.

    2. Meeting so many forumites has been awesome everyone was welcoming and friendly.

    3. The artists were just amazing, David Grissom and Bosco France are genuinely 2 of the nicest guys on the planet. Emil Werstler remembered me from 6 years ago and was just a helluva guy.

    4. It was a blast to just sit and hear stories from Doug Sewell, Skitchy, the rest of the PRS crew

    5. I witnessed a miracle while there as my wallet did not empty lol


    Thanks to all the forum guys though seriously you guys made the weekend awesome

    Lastly what's with all the mac n cheese ;)

    Like TMB before me, I too decided to bone out early and head back home. I was very glad to have made the trip from Detroit to come to EXP2018, made some new friends, checked out the MT15 and Archon 50 and got to enjoy myself if for a little while. The only three downsides to the trip were 1: realizing that the staff member who rung up my purchases never put the replacement knobs back in the bag (and I was too caught up in the excitement to check on it), 2: not being able to purchase the aforementioned MT15 due to non-availability and 3: getting my picture with Mr. Paul and seeing how much of a friggin' whale I have become despite my recent dieting and exercising. Those things aside, it was a great time.

    Wow, day 2 was a loooong day! What a great time! Almost overload! Saw so many amazing guitars, met lots of great Forumers and others, saw some incredible artists play, and, um, yeah! Seriously tired, thanks for the awesome t-shirt, too!

    Had a great "experience." Attended both days. What a great event!

    But, I didn't get to pull the trigger on a 594SC McCarty burst - even a non-10 would have worked just fine. I looked, not one to be found. How could that happen??

    So now I plan to contact some dealers and see what they are expected to receive in the next few months. Maybe there's something in the pipeline.

    I passed them out Saturday morning. Two bags full. They did go quickly. I concentrated on kids and those without drinks or cigars. One guy "asked for it" and got his ash knocked off.
