GAL Convention Group Photos

Here's a gallery of sixteen GAL Convention group photos from 1978 to 2017. Click on a picture to enlarge it, and find yourself, your buddies, or a famous luthier! Unfortunately, there were six years when we weren't able to get a group photo (or we hadn't thought of it yet). Since the mid-1980s, the group photo has been a feature at every GAL Convention.
