    Wanting a hollow/semi hollow. Big dude i want a bigger guitar

    Every time I strap on my avatar guitar (Hohner Steinberger copy) I am reminded that I am no longer the 130 lb stick insect I was when I bought it 33 years ago. I look stoopid.

    Yeah but you do realise that we don't care whether your guitar is any good. We just wants ta seez pichaz. Pichaz good. Post no pichaz no good.

    My predictions are becoming true.

    My 15-year-old son heard me playing The night they drove old Dixie down on the guitar a while back. He came to me the other day and asked who did the best version so he could find it on youtube. Ha! But at least he was able to root out the song. And he doesn't care what era it's from. He has...

    Yamaha THR-clean tones, twang, full sounding open E string?

    I think it records really well with a mic - but that might depend on the mic. I recorded most of my last 3 albums on it. I've never really tried recording the clean sounds, though. Maybe I'll play around and give that a go.

    Yamaha THR-clean tones, twang, full sounding open E string?

    It does clean pretty well, on the two cleanest amp settings. But on a tele it means taking the gain down to about 10 o'clock, which means you won't get huge volume out of it. Still way loud enough for home use, but not the ear-splitting home volume you can get on the crunchy sounds. Having said...

    Show Your First Guitar

    My first few guitars are in landfill somewhere. Deservedly. Although they might be better employed as instruments of torture. So to speak.

    Best Gibson-scale Guitar...

    I'm a big Guild fan. Also a D'Angelico if you can get a deal on one that has Duncan pickups. Wonderful guitars.

    Cello anyone?

    I love the cello. It's one of the few instruments where I buy a CD just because it says the word cello on it. On one of my last songs I really wanted a cello solo. But I don't play cello or know anyone who does. So, just out of interest, I tried the cello setting on my Roland Go Keys. Usually...

    PRS Silver Sky SE officially announced.

    As one who is completely turned off by the noises that emanate from anything strat-like, I think you're officially all nuts. That's all I wanted to say. Nuts.

    Are V necks uncommon on Telecasters?

    Yes, I have an old Mighty Mite neck with a pretty pronounced V that I really like. The Baja is chunky, but it's really a V in name only. I wish more guitars had V necks. I find them really comfy.

    New painting: boy leaping onto a tree stump

    Thank you. Yeah, even with all the online stuff and computer games kids have now, stick em in a forest and they're the same kids they always were, using their imaginations and playing like always.

    New painting: boy leaping onto a tree stump

    Thanks. No, nothing like that. I'm not much for putting myself out there. The more of that kind of thing I do, the less fun the whole thing is. So I suppose I'll settle for the appreciation of some tele players.
