Aardvark at the SoCal Vintage Show: All Over

It’s over. After three fun-filled days, at 4:00pm the doors closed, and the exhibitors gave a warm round of applause to Larry Briggs and crew for another well-organized, successful show.

Sundays are the most relaxed days at vintage guitar shows: there’s no rushed setup, customers seem to be a bit more casual, and the overall volume coming from the various guitar amps creeps up a little more each hour. We made friends with and sold guitars and amps to people from Japan, Italy, and Australia. We purchased a few more really great guitars (including a beautiful Martin 00-21). We saw what may be the mintiest 1965 P-Bass on the planet. We ate bad food. And we packed up the booth and began the long drive home.
