I'd take a guitar if I were you, not just to keep your chops up, but what if you encounter some new found inspiration, you have an idea in your head and you wanna play it. I mean your gonna be encountering a lot of new sights and music when you go over there. I left to Mexcico once without a guitar ...

there was a great article in guitar world I think...i think it was titled "Hired Guns". Anyways it went into great deal on some of the great session guitarists of the 80's. I'll try to get back to you on that one. But you basically have to be extremely flexible in deliviring what is asked of you.

That'd be FREAKING AMAZING.
What if he names it "poop"? That would rock even harder.
