To ALL our Santa Cruz friends…..Please keep us informed about the S.C fires and if the Mothership or any of you are in danger.
I would offer to take care of any guitars you might want to send to S.W. Florida but………..we have a Hurricane due here next Mon. or Tues.. At least that’s the forecast at the moment.

Hank, thank you for your concern, it’s really bad here, right now the evacuation line is the City of Santa Cruz on the north, here’s a link you can follow what’s going on
People in Santa Cruz are packing their cars and vans now, it’s not going to get any better for a couple of days, the sky is orange and it’s chunky with ash and debris and we’re 45 miles to the south, think good thoughts everyone, this is going to get ugly. I’ll try to update the forum as possible.
We’ll make it

Ten years ago SCGC presented Scott Law and Bill Nershi at the Big Basin Winery. There were at least a dozen different guitars they played that night. It was magical in every possible musical way.
the Winery currently evacuated.
I hope it can survive,

I video taped that show, I remember spending 2 hours color correcting my cameras because of the windows, and 15 seconds into the show somebody leaned on the light switch and turned everything off, but the video is rockin…..I do remember that after 2 1/2 hours of show they had a hard time with House of the Rising Sun, but they totally rocked the night

Sorry to hear the sad news, thank you for the update. It’s incredibly sad to see the destruction and ongoing challenges that 2020 is bringing. I live in the San Joaquin Valley in CA, and we have bags packed just in case we need to evacuate as well.
