There will be a good story here...all mahogany 1957 Goldtop - that's my kind of guitar.

Looking forward to the demos for them.

I bought a Fano PX6 from that shop. Nice people.

I once missed a great deal on a Rick 230 from them. Saw it online and it said overseas buyers please call and it was the wrong time of day, so I called back the next day. Guy went to take it off the shelf and when he came back to the phone he said so sorry but I didn't realise, it was sold half an hour ago. Gutted :-(

Pop quiz: you can have one of those guitars…..or…..the hands/chops (but not fame and fortune) of your favourite player.

Which do you choose?

Easy. Hands/chops any day. Don't need a flash axe. As much as I'd like to make a living from my creativity, I'd rather have a higher degree of mastery of the instrument to be able to express the crap in my head...whether anyone else gets it, I can't control...but to get it out with expressive eloquence and mistake free fluidity would be, for me, a life worth living :D

That was like watching some high-level drug deal taking place.
Nothing to see here.

Yeah, but you never got to try the drugs. Bloody teaser vid, that.

I wouldn't want actual hands grafted onto my arms. Then I'd have four hands.

Dude...I'd take the four hands deal. Then I'd have I'd have 15 fingers of fun, fanging fun! :D

I've met some fine guitarists. I've never met one who didn't look up to others as superior.

I feel that already so I'll take the burst. That way at least I'll have half a million dollars I don't have now. :rofl:
And given my apparent relationship with Les Pauls, it will remain in its current condition.

Just longer fingers, or even just a pinky finger that isn't stubby, the rest of my fingers are long enough.

Not that it would tidy up my ever-increasingly sloppy bedroom playing, but at least I might be able to reach a couple of things I'd love to be able to play.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

Similar boat to what I'm paddling here...big palms, chod fingers. I call them meat slabs with frills...o and then I had the genius idea to chop the end of my left hand, pointer finger off! :crazy:

Previously, I could just mangle a 5 fret spread on a good day...but now, even an open/cowboy C chord is a major grab! I'm working on it though, like a Beatles chord: using middle, ring and pinky...little wins :)
