Yes, I loved Chicken Shack too, and especially that song.
I only saw FM once, Green's Playhouse, Glasgow when she joined just after Peter Green left.
Her name (Christine Perfect) was printed on the ticket as a guest artist which was then blanked out for unknown reasons, maybe contractural? But...
While Teles are our main focus/passion/obsession here we do like to indulge, well, everything!
I have built 5 Tele style, 1 bass, several resonators, 1 OM size acoustic and 3 archops. And one or two questionable projects.
A woodworking class would be a great place for access to tools, machinery...
Hello Hairy, welcome to the forum. You have come to a good place.🙂
Personally, I wouldn't use Douglas Fir for the neck, but how about using it for the body?
I use maple for the neck. I have successfully used other neck timbers, but not DF.......Let's see what other members suggest.
I know that Norrie (Wilson?) from Lost Glasgow would love to learn about those photos.
And me too, I haven't been back since 1991!
I hardly recognized my hometown when I saw it on TV news items from last year's Climate Conference.
I came to Perth, Australia in 1984 for a 2 year working...
Thank you, my friend, it's good advice.
When I stopped drinking I was quite involved in a large Australian church, playing in the band etc.
After I had gone 3 months (at my birthday) without the grog I mentioned to my wife that I had stopped drinking alcohol......"Yes, I've noticed" she said...
Well done pal! I am greatly encouraged by your post.
I had my last drink almost 23 years ago, on Christmas Day 1999.
I reckon I drank enough in the 20th Century to last me through the 21st.
And did I expect to go so long? Nope; one day at a time.
I probably paid off large chunks of the mortgage...
There were a few nice guitar shops in Glasgow and during my teens I would tour them often. My real GAS began with the late 60's Fender Paisley Telecaster and also the Gibson Barney Kessel.
I still lust after the BK but I did eventually make myself a Paisley earlier this year............
There was a small guitar shop in the heart of my hometown Glasgow in the late '60s and a teenage Crafty pressed his nose to their window every Saturday hoping to catch the scent of that original Paisley Fender Telecaster.
Fast forward some years and I had returned from a back packing trip...
My longest serving, still owned guitars are:
'79 Fender Stratocaster, bought new in 1980
'73 Guild D55, bought around 1988
'88 Fender 52 RI Telecaster, bought in 1992
I have some others but not owned as long as these three, which I'll never part with.
