So I bought my first (and given my finances the only) PRS just a couple months ago and have never been to a guitar factory of any sort. I did register for the Experience and arrive Friday afternoon. How many show up for this? Y'all seem pretty psyched... they used to get pretty charged up on the Hamer forum about the open houses there, I know but I never made it up to Connecticut for one.
I need to not bring a credit card, I'm thinking....
polara - it is an absolute BLAST! lots of guitars, lots of MONSTER guitar players, lots of like minded people hanging out and enjoying each other, the music, the clinics, the tours, etc.....

I'm not all that wound up yet but it could be because I'm buried at work. Also, this will be my first Experience so I don't know what to expect. I'm sure once I get on my flight at 5am on Thursday, I'll start to get excited.
Believe it or not, the thing I'm looking forward to most is meeting some of the people I've been interacting with online over the years on BAM, VR, and here. I'm not terribly active on the forums but I still feel like I've met some good folks. Hopefully, I'll figure out who they are. If all else fails, I'll go down to the lobby at the Hliton Garden Inn. I heard it's the place to be.
Wish I was going... maybe next year. Boo!
