Why, yes, I'll be there, thanks for asking. Lots of gear to flog or trade, including:
-[ed: ...a bunch of stuff...]
- a bunch of Big Ed's nice-ass tele partscasters and tele necks from Warmoth, Musikraft, Allparts. He'll be there as well.
Here's an action shot of me with the Hammerbag, from the last Burlington Edfest, courtesy of Pete. I will include a free carrying bag with every purchase!

It’s was a few hour drive, though I went to Elmira earlier this year. How might this show be in comparison if it was to drive the distance?

It's much smaller. Probably 1/5 the size, IMO. And Tundra takes a lot of the space to show all the garbage they sell along with a few cool Fender Custom Shop guitars they have in stock. For me it's a commute from Toronto, a fun way to kill a day, and I always sell or trade some gear. For you, it's 6 hours of driving. If I had to drive that much to get there, I wouldn't do it.

Looks like I can make it, probably for the morning. I always think I'll throw a couple of items in the trunk in case a fabulous trade happens... but always too shy to follow through. Fun to browse though. I've discovered some great people and products. Hope to chat with Dr Dan Amps.

Hey, thanks for asking!
It was the usual, same-old-same-old.
Met some new faces, hung out with some familiar faces, so great fun.
Conclusions:
1
-the Ampeg VT-22 is an awesomely fantastic-sounding amp
-the Ampeg VT-22 is a very heavy amp
-the Ampeg VT-22 works like a charm and is still for sale
2
-the Koch Twintone III head is an awesomely fantastic-sounding amp
-the Koch Twintone III head is reasonably light, compact and portable for a 50 watt head
-the Koch Twintone III head works like a charm and is still for sale
....and so forth.
Sadly, I didn't see much of my pals Bob Borden or Bill King, which I usually do.

I was thinking about coming out, but I had rehearsal yesterday.
Wanted to discuss your Rivera's (used to have a 212 Fandango. I miss that).
The only thing stopping me is the weight and my gear kitty is low on funds. lol.
