PLEK Roundtable with Joe Glaser, TJ Thompson, Roger Sadowsky and Dana Bourgeois

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We’ll talk to a handful of PLEK fans (including some of the biggest guitar makers alive today), along with a skeptic or two. Led by Nashville’s Joe Glaser, PLEK expert and one of the country’s great guitar repairmen.
