Met Randall Smith today

Post by fatbagg » Tue Jul 05, 2016 11:19 pm

Went to The Guitar Store in Seattle altering hearing about it from a fellow boogie boarder. Great shop, and I had heard Randall Smith was going to be in. I was heading up to try the new JP2c anyways, so it was perfect timing. He was awesome and friendly, and signed my Mark IV that I drug up there! Pretty cool stuff. More to follow on my half hour impression on the JP (I'm a IIC+ and Mark IV owner, and former mark V and lone star), and how it feels compared to some other boogies, to me.

Nice meeting you today. I got there about a hour early and so did Randy...So I got to talk with him alone for about a hour before everyone else showed up.
The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.

Yea, you too! I just barely made it. I was hoping to get there early, but Traffic was against me (I live about an hour south). I got there in time to catch him for a few minutes before he left. Nice guy!

I'm in Kent these days. He's going to be at A Sharp this morning.

It was really nice to meet him. I guess we were all there together. Wish I'd known, it would have been nice to say hello to everyone!

I think I could listen to Randall all day. Fascinating conversation.

It was nice to James to ask him to sign my Mark V for me.

I got to meet him five years ago. Seemed like a nice, laid-back guy. Didn't get my amp signed, but did get to tell him the Mark V was the best I've ever had :)

I went down to Renton and saw him this morning. Randy is a extremely nice person.

Last summer he came to the Guitar Sanctuary McKinney, TX not too far from me. He could not be more gracious with his time. A really class act, and it explains a lot about why they make such great stuff. Class act translates into head of the class products too.
