COOL NEWS FROM GEOFF METTS OF FIVE STAR GUITARS
Last week as I was packing and getting all set to head out with the family to St. Paul, Minnesota for my daughter Julia’s Graduation from Macalester College, I figured I’d check thru my 600 plus daily emails one last time before going to bed. (By the way I just have to say how proud I am of Julia for her perseverance in getting her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology. I better stop here though or I’d be going on about how proud I am of all my kids and their achievements for the next 20 minutes.)
When you have three web sites it’s amazing how much garbage email you attract and you really do have to sift thru all that trash on a daily basis just to find the important stuff. Everyday I sift…otherwise if I miss a couple of days, there are literally a thousand plus emails…just for two days of not checking.
It was very cool to find the email from Geoff Metts of Five Star Guitars, my local Portland area guitar shop that makes everyone feel right at home as soon as one walks through their doorway.
I did a little piece a few months ago on Five Star Guitars. If you missed it you can check it out here: Jackaboutguitars/Five Star Guitars. Great shop, great people, great prices on great gear!
