Don't forget about Beard at Resosummit!

I know everybody was really excited to see the new National Scheerhorn collaboration, but I think just as much attention was paid to Paul Beard's offerings at Resosummit. He seemed to be doing a very brisk business selling the Beard Legend cone and new cover plates. His new Model 27 based on Tut Taylor's old guitar is one fine instrument. I borrowed it while Paul upgraded my Tennessean and was very impressed.
Mike Witcher had a new Jerry Douglas Blackbird that was a sweet as could be, and the Beard Odyssey that Andy Hall tried out sounded fantastic (less so when I tried it, but I think there may be a talent difference at work there).
This is truly a golden age for resonator guitar. We are incredibly lucky to have people like Paul, Tim and others making their finest instruments right now.

Tips & Tricks for those attending Resosummit

I thought I'd start a discussion with some tips and tricks I've picked up from attending previous Resosummits. Please add your advice and experience as you like.

  • Talk to everybody! I haven't been bitten once at Resosummit.
  • Stay hydrated. There will be water machines in the lobby and elsewhere.
  • If you need a break, there are plenty of dining options a very short walk away. I like the San Antonio Taco Company because it's fast and cheap. The Mellow Mushroom has good pizza.
  • Diagonally across the street from the Station Inn is the Turnip Truck Natural Market, sort of a Whole Foods type grocery and deli. They have very good food and are a good choice for a fast meal before the Station Inn (unless you prefer the pizza at the Station Inn). There's also a frozen yogurt shop in that same complex.
