    Its Guitar-B-Que time again!!

    *DATE: April 24th - 8:30AM till 4:30PM then the Jam will start at 7*

    *SHOPS ADDRESS*
    9864 Dino Dr #6
    Elk Grove, CA 95624

    Ok everyone, here's all the details. We're really excited to be doing this again!

    *Body Options*
    We will have an "order form" to fill out at the BBQ with all the routing options. We will be offering Strats and Tele's again with a variety of routing and pickup options (especially the Tele's).

    *Price*
    100 per body (either material)

    *Material Options*
    Alder and African Mahogany.

    *Payment:*.
    Paypal is sales@kauerguitars.com . PLEASE put in your information if you are buying an Alder or Mahogany body.

    The cut off is March 31st. If your coming just to hang out and BS (and eat!!) and decide you want a body after all, just bring cash and hope there are unclaimed blanks!

    I can't promise every one of them is going to be Sunburst worthy (this IS wood after all, some of these are bound to have bland or some blemished grain) so get early to claim your billet. Dad, Steve and I spend a lot of time hand pulling material, matching them up for glue up (these will be 2pc bodies) so we will do our best to have a lot of nice looking ones.

    *Misc Information*
    This year we're capping at 25 bodies. I'll have the router tables setup so I can edge them ('cept for binding) and sanders out if you need to "borrow" a sander.

    *Be sure to thank Steve, Rick, Rita and Dave... they are also volunteering to help man the router and shopsmith. *

    *Amp and Guitar Room!*

    The Amp Room WILL be happening again! Last year was fantastic, lots and lots of great amps and guitars all kinds of great things. This was hands down a huge success last year!

    *Food*

    This is simple. Bring what you feel like eating with enough to share with 2-3 other people. If its burger's bring a pound of ground beef, 4 pack of sausage ect ect. I used to hold BBQ's like this at the shop all the time and it almost always works out. If not, there is a Bel Air a half mile from the shop for soda runs.

    Just remember, this is my place of business. I try to keep the beer drinking, juvenile hijinx to a minimum. ;)

    *Lodging*

    My favorite place to stay in Sacramento is the Sheraton Hotel and while not walking distance its pretty close.

    *AFTER THE BBQ- Jam*
    The Place: Vega's in Old Sacramento
    We've worked it out that Vega's is going to host an open jam night for all of us who want to play after the BBQ. Last year was an absolute blast and we're expecting some of you guys who wussed out last year to be on stage!

    We're thinking meet there around 7pm, that gives everyone time to find food, shower, rest if needed (lord knows I'll need it). We can get together, have some beer and play. I'll try to get at least 1 or 2 drummers on hand and at least 1 bass player (dave and I can play bass in a pinch). Bring an amp if you can, otherwise I'll have my Bassman and Encore as an extra amp.

    Vega's Nightclub
    910 Second Street
    Sacramento CA 95814

    There are several excellent places to eat in Elk Grove and Sacramento... PM if you have something specific in mind your looking for.

    *Misc Notes*
    -Bring lawn chairs, trust me your feet will thank you for it!
    - If your bringing something specific food wise (besides burgers and or dogs) post it up so we don't have to many duplicates.
    - I would LOVE it if someone was willing to pickup plastic plates, forks ect. Please if your willing to do that post it up again.

    last years pictures!

    Cool!

    I forgot to mention, this bbq is open just to hang out too! You don't have to get a body, bring an amp or anything (though bring some food!). Come down and hang out

    I'll be there again. The event last year was a fine time - the shop is impressive. Maybe I'll bring the '59 Tweed Tremolux.......

    You know when you make a statement like that, everyone is going to HOLD YOU to bringing that Tremolux ;)

    Otherwise... NO SOUP (BBQ) FOR YOU!

    Vikki

    Vikki Lee and The Pincones. They play around that area. She is Albert Lee's cousin, plays with Ramblin' Jack Elliott alot. Man, I wish I could make it. Frankly, it is all I can do to provide for my teen age triplets and pay the bills.
    :oops:

    Can I put an order in for a body and I can just set up a web cam out by my smoker as I tend to it?

    I remember seeing those pictures and wish I could of been there.

    Hey, I know Vikki!

    I recently started playing in a newly formed oldies band with Vikki. We've played some gigs together and she's a blast, a real sweetheart!
    She's on cloud nine right now since Ramblin Jack won a Grammy yesterday.

    I'm out of town on 4-24...sheeesh. That sounds like a blast. I couldn't make it last year either.

    How did I miss this thread until today?!

    I missed last year's event and was already looking forward to this year's. Just checked my calendar and the day is open, just need to check the family calendar at home to make sure that I am not missing something. If that's clear, then I'm in!
