Central Coast Guitar Show May 2 in San Luis Obispo       This event has been relocated to a much better venue this year, the Grange Hall at 2880 Broad Street in San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. The hours are 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, May 2. I will have nearly all of the fretted instruments in the shop displayed at this event in a 40′ booth. If there is room, I will carry a few string basses as well. SLO is a beautiful city with many great restaurants and a lot of destinations for the rest of the weekend.
