    I thought Bry's telemaster looked rather brilliant as it was, rather than with the toasted look. But I'll reserve judgement...

    Maybe he wanted it to play like butter.

    Hey Ninja, lots of selling and buying going on here. Why on earth do you want to get down to single figures :) ?
    What kind of stuff do you write? Anything music related?

    I know, there are folks out there who manage with a single guitar...I'm not one of them though. I was giving some thought to an acoustic - I like the Sigma J45 copy or their version of the mockingbird. Yet I found myself eyeing Ibanez RGs on ebay...

    I write space opera/pulp scifi - it's just been a private escape until recently; I'm one down in a series of about 6, number 2 is nearly done. Funny thing I have been working with a mate on an idea for a music focused novel - it's embryonic but we have an idea for a story set in the early 90s involving a metal band trying to find its way in the grunge world order.

    I've got the Sigma j45 copy and it's a keeper. Do check out the Vintage V300 mahogany as well.

    Brilliant one still exists, the toasted one is a Guitarbuild reject I got from Ebay. Scorched, stained and shielded and I'll be oiling and photographing it tomorrow :)

    Wow that sounds fascinating! Pulp sci if? Not a genre I'm familiar with but I'd probably buy it just to see what it's like! You've got some great ideas.

    I use the term pulp sci-fi because it's straight escapism - think sci-fi where the science is dodgy and dysfunctional characters fly around in horribly beweaponed starships. Isaac Asimov I am not...My website explain it better - www.paulgrover.co.uk - it's all there if you want to know more.

    Kevin - how is the Sigma for comfort? I have always been an electric player and in the past have always tended toward Auditorium or OO sized guitars over dreadnoughts.

    Although I do love how a dreadnought sounds when stummed, they have presence that you don't get with smaller bodies. I must admit I may have exaggerated the size of a dreadnought in my mind, so I am probably overthinking a bit.

    The Vintage is smaller bodied but with a big sound.

    The 'J45' is fine for me. I'm six foot. It is pretty close to the real J45. The Sigma J200 is very close in sound and playability to a J45 True Vintage. It's a big guitar.

    I've been known to like a bit of sci-fi myself, I'll have to have a look on your website Ninja. :)

    I like fantasy/sci-fi so long as the physical rules are set out early and not broken. Toy Story is a favourite in that the toys are alive but everything else follows normal scientific rules. I can't stand The Lord of the Rings trilogy because they make the rules up as they go along.

    If Gandolf could cast a spell at the last moment to defeat an unassailable foe then why didn't he just cast a spell and get bloody the ring ?

    Three hours of numb-bum that I'll never get back.

    I always enjoyed Randal's Lord of the Rings rant in Clerks II, where he basically sums up the movie as three films about people walking somewhere.

    "In that movie even the trees walked"

    Ha ha ha !

    That sums it up exactly !

    Game of Thrones walks that tightrope really well and manages to stay just within my golden rule.

    The latest season does, however, push it a bit on people getting from land-to-land at record speed. I forgive them for that though.

    *Spoiler alert***
