When I went there I only bought a set of Harley benton Value Strings for 0,99 €. It was a great experience. At the Flohmarkt (flea market) Thomann sold all kind of stuff at low price. They sold broken Harley Benton guitars for 20 €, but also stuff from major brands at low price
Thomann is really great. Especially the Flohmarkt (which has been cancelled this year). There you find really great stuff at incredible price. You should also go to Bamberg, which is pretty close. A really amazing city
The Neck looks like a 1978. But he put a fake Custom shop Decal on the back of the headstock and the tuners are not original. I don't know if the body is original. Perhaps a refinish. I am pretty sure that Fender did not make guitars with this colour in 1978
I would put the following pedals on the board:
- TU 3 (I always need a reliable tuner)
- BD2 (as Boost OD or Fuzz)
- FDR1 65 Deluxe Reverb (Overdrive, Vibrato and Reverb in one Pedal)
-your guitar is in tune
-you have the classic surf effects Vibrato and Reverb in great quality
I love to see videos of George Harrison and Robbie Krieger playing SGs, but I played in a coverband with a mediocre Angus-Wannabee who tried too look very tough with his SG and his cargo pants. Because of him I never bought an SG. I don't want to offend any AC/DC fan, but I will always...
The Crumar Seven is lighter than a Princeton Reverb and it sounds amazing. If Crumar would start a Cooperation with Fender, they could make a digital Piano with original Fender Hardware from the Blackface/Silverface Amps Tolex, Knobs, Corners, Handles. If they would use a Silverface panel on the...
I own a Rhodes Mark I and I built a lightweight case for it. So it is not so heavy. Vintage Vibe is building amazing lightweight electromechanical Pianos. Perhaps Fender could start a cooperation with them
I am a big fan of the Fender Rhodes Pianos and I also like the Comtempo Organ from the 60s.
Do you think that Fender will ever produce Keyboard instruments?
If they would start a partnership with the new owners of the Rhodes brand and start to produce the Rhodes Mark I and the...
It looked always so wrong to me, when great musicians from the 60s and 70s, who reached the bottom of their careers in the 80s started to play pointy Super Strats in awful colours, wearing jackets with rolled up sleeves and playing horrible synthesizer pop
Nice picture. When I buy a guitar I try to regard it as a tool and not to becone too much sentimental (I only have two guitars which I got in my teens which I would never sell). I would get a used Classic/Vintera 50s or 60s. If you would sell the single pieces of your guitar separately you can...
