  • I absolutely loved the AFC95 also - tried that on my earlier trip to G4M, a total belter of a guitar I thought, and excellent value. Might have tried the same one you did for all I know. Not good re the keyboard enquiry I have to say, no points ther…
  • Just to say, despite my past endorsement of a certain brand, I'd be a bit cautious re the guitar you link to Lester - I just find the price a bit too good to be true, and wonder if there might be some kind of issue with the guitar that the seller ho…
  • Thank you chaps, reassuring that other guitarists feel they might tend to agree with my impressions. As for Gear4Music, I don't want to give the impression they are perfect - the staff are friendly and helpful, and they have a vast stock of products…
  • Just to throw in my 2 pence worth, based I admit only on a little bit of experience, but I feel the doing up a cheap guitar route can only take you so far, and is generally not a sound idea financially. I guess what I'm saying is that they are not w…
  • Just got back from another boys day out visit to the big Gear4Music warehouse/store on the outskirts of York. Again just went along for the ride, again bought nothing. But I did have a general browse around, and just a quick go on various guitars d…
  • Not in the market for an acoustic at the moment KP, but I certainly take note of what you say, and the video results. I did once try a Taylor myself - looked and felt very nice, but can't say I thought a lot of the sound.

  • Yes. I gave it away because I was never using it. It was built for form rather than function. My grandson has it now and loves it. As does all his guitar playing buddies. If he wants a natural finish I'll strongly suggest he goes for Tru-oil. If he …
  • Handsome beast that walnut tele is Jocko
  • Wow that looks like my ideal Les Paul! Nice axe Megi! Is that wudtone clear coat an oil ? You don’t want to sand wood super smooth before staining anyhow. Going down to 240 grit is all you need. Beyond that and you’ll just make the wood shiny an…
  • That looks nice! Sounds like you're well set anyhow Jocko, and have fun with the build.
  • I have limited experience of Wudtone - having once used a clear coat kit from them to do this guitar: It worked fine, as you can see - I was trying to keep the wood as light-looking as possible, but in the end I would say I prefer Tru Oil, althou…
  • And while we’re talking metal, here’s a Metallic tune I can stomach! Still funny, and brilliantly done.

  • One of my favourite artists, Mark Kozelek, recorded an album of AC/DC covers done with acoustic guitar arrangements that I found very lovely...

  • Well maybe slightly, but more just a bit unsure what to make of it really...
  • That Strandberg looks to be an absolute beast Nick, congrats on that one - I am a bit envious I'm afraid...
  • Never have - it's not in my neck of the woods unfortunately. But should fortune ever take me anywhere close, I will try to drop by.
  • Tastes vary, quite legitimately Lester. We're all different, and respond to different things. So not unbelievable, or unreasonable at all. There are things in music that do nothing for me, that some of my friends are incredulous about, but it's just…

  • I went to Donington Monsters of Rock in '84, '85 and '86 - AC/DC headlined in '84 - I had gone largely to see Van Halen who were penultimate on the bill, and that was wonderful, but I will not forget the experience of seeing AC/DC headline - they we…

  • Thank you for your indulgent kindness chaps - still have not found time to install the pickups, having been a bit busy, but I will make a start tomorrow. The pickups have been made to a very high standard, which can be seen just from observing them …
  • Hmm...
  • You certainly make a persuasive case for the V300MH KP and glad it is working out so well for you. Wish I were a more skilled acoustic guitarist really, but I suspect if I did get one myself, I would not get the best value or potential from it. But …
  • Good work there Lester, that does look a whole lot better. At the moment, rosewood fretboards seem increasingly rare, due I think to the CITES rules that came in. Apparently these will be relaxed for musical instrument purposes, but that won't take …
  • Thank you gents, I do realise this is just me being me - I post for entertainment value mainly. That said, I do read people getting insanely involved in guitar gear details on forums, and I do try to avoid getting sucked in myself. Indeed I managed …
  • Belated thank you for listening to our music Derek, and glad you enjoyed it.
  • The forum has been very quiet of late it's true - but this is good stuff, and thank you for posting it all Lester. Lovely work with the sound hole feedback reducer. Also, I do admire your purposeful, compact, to the point pedal board, and live setup…
  • Sad to hear this - he is not someone I have known a great deal about, or thought much about before I have to admit. His company has certainly helped my own guitar playing though, with well-considered and designed products - I've used a Dunlop capo b…
  • I'll just re-post the link FWIW https://soundcloud.com/vintage-cool - we did this 5 or so years ago, there are things on there re my own playing that I cringe at a bit, and hope I'd do better with today. But I still think these recordings, done live…
  • Megi - I loved that. Really honest music. Please thank Beryl for me too. WOW ! Don't do professional recording. Keep it like that. So cool and retro. (I must have responded to an earlier comment by mistake. Re your soundcloud.) Thanks for listeni…
  • Cheers Derek and ES - indeed it was a bit of a guitar safari, I like that term. I do get a bit carried away with the old gas from time to time I know, but I did come to some, I hope useful, conclusions. One of which was that there really is a lot of…
  • Nice day out, it seems. There are plenty of good reviews of the AS83, here. And I am sure you get around, Megi as there is talk on jazzguitar.be about upgrading the pickups and a certain Meggy of Lincolnshire had a thing or two to say, here. I pa…
