What are you lookin' for MR. CO-MODERATOR?

The sets you see above have not changed.  &
I only owed 'you guys' one additional set which
is listed below.   

KANAD & SAUGATA GHOSE:   

OUT OF LIMITS, BLUE STAR, HANG ON SLOOPY, PEDAL PUSHER,
VICTORIA STATION, DETROIT CITY/ONE MORE TIME, SWINGIN' CREEPER,
GET SMART THEME, RAP CITY, BLUE CHRISTMAS, SUMMER AFFAIR, SAMOVER &
I WALK THE LINE


We'll have two featured bands this year- THE PICKNIKS & OLDSKOOL.   Those
bands did not submit set lists.  They wanna 'surprise' us.   Can say tho that 'the
guys' that comprise OLDSKOOL will offer up several vocals within their set!

Philly's 'very first' rock 'n roll star- MR. CHARLIE GRACIE will deliver a talk & perform
a half-dozen songs- (three of them instrumentals) prior to dinner.  I've requested his
band perform WALK, DON'T RUN for their final number.   

Tina Edwards, (Nokie's daughter) & Jill Wilson (Don's daughter will attend & lead a
NOKIE EDWARDS REMEMBERED tribute shortly after dinner!

Our grand finale this year will be a 'longer than usual' version of CARAVAN with (11)
year old DANNY ROBERTS manning the drums & performing the bass tattoo as well in
front of the drum kit!

Interviews & Praise / VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE!
« Last post by tabalt11 on September 13, 2018, 02:55:42 pm »
I'm being told by regular fest attendee. good friend &
longtime VENTURES fan Vic Hines that VINTAGE GUITAR
MAGAZINE is currently conducting their annual 'online' HALL
OF FAME inductions in various categories.   We both seem to think
that a fellow by the name of NOKIE EDWARDS should be a shoo-in for
a LEGENDARY PLAYER & or INNOVATOR nomination.

Vic further adds that we all have to 'get cracking' on this since only (4)
days remain for posting your ONLINE choices.   The process is simple enough-
google search Vintage Guitar Magazine & follow the prompts!   

LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOLKS!

For Sale / 1960 Fender Jazzmaster - refinished to original sunburst color
« Last post by John Drysdale on September 02, 2018, 11:48:02 pm »
1960 Fender Jazzmaster For Sale: $5000 to fans on this forum.  I will be listing this at reverb.com for $5500, but am offering it to Fans of The Ventures for $5000.  Price is firm and if it doesn't sell, I will hold onto it for some more years.

This guitar has been refinished and restored to its original color and state by master luthier, Dana Sutcliffe.
It plays and sounds like a NOS Jazzmaster!

I bought this from the original owner who purchased it in 1961.  He told me it was painted white when he bought it.  Apparently, the music store owner rented guitars at the time and probably had it repainted for some reason.  The original color was sunburst.

The bridge and nut were replaced with period correct parts.  The pick guard has warped over the years.  Dana was able to flatten it somewhat, but it reverted back to the warped state, although not as much as when I got it.  All original parts are included as well.

Not only are the pickups original…they were hand wound by Abigail Ybarra!  She signed her name as “Gail” underneath the pick guard.
Dana also used period correct DuPont paint for the finish.  I have receipts for all work done.

Comes with original case that is worn, but the real thing.  Also comes with original guitar cable, tremolo bar and a mid-sixties Jazzmaster hang tag (not the original that came with this guitar).
I bought this as a player’s guitar, not really for collecting.  It has had very minimal playing.  That being said, it is still a collector’s guitar that will definitely increase in value.

I have some major expenses and have decided to sell my guitar to someone who appreciates its tone, quality and value.

FOTV forum APPARENTLY is ON TRACK for shutdown in early Sept. due to lack of interest.
So for the FEW MEMBERS who see this message this message I encourage you to save what you want on your own computer.
