    I go by there 3 to 4 times a year on my way to min. I'm gonna stop in next time (in 2 weeks) and check er out. Only prob is I'm a giging guitar player, no scratch.
    Hey Dman, we live very close by. I'm east of mchenry. Pm me if you're out playin and I'll do the same.

    Dave's aside, La Crosse is a beautiful city in a stunning part of Wisconsin and legendary for partying. We'd head down for Oktoberfest in the early 80s. In the beer halls, we would literally swing from giant tarzan vines.

    I've bought from him at the Arlington Guitar Show a couple times. (my fave tele for one)

    I'd love to get up to see his shop.

    Been there a couple of times. Nice, knowledgeable, and friendly staff. What a candy store!! Nice town too, with a lot of microbrews available and some good food also. Wouldn't mind living there.
