    Default Mountain Acoustics Luthier Invitational

    I received an invitation to show my instruments at this gathering in Burnsville NC.
    Has anyone here ever been to this show? Just wondering how big a turnout they get.
    The host is Jay Lichty.
    Any opinions welcome.. Thanks

    I was invited to exhibit, but we're going to be in Ireland this summer. Jay Lichty is a beast of a builder and a very nice guy. Think Skip Kelly, but for guitars and ukuleles. This is the first show, so nobody has been to one yet. Seems well organized from what I can tell, but the proof is in whether people show up or not.

    This is the first year.

    If they would host it in Asheville, we get a minimum of 30,000 tourists per day, every one in the country likes to visit, and the show would be packed; you'd have a very good likelihood of selling product and making it worth your while as a business decision.

    Instead, they are insisting on it being a Burnsville specific event, a very small town 50 miles away that gets maybe 150 people on a good weekend....a weak formula for success....
