    Yes you can! Try this: click the 'More Options' tab in the Comments box at the bottom of the page and just drag and drop your picture into the box - screen grabs work well... click the 'Full' option to display the image big....

    Great poster, but... 'Colorado's No1 Surf Band'...? I'm English - but where they did they find Surf in Colorado? Haha

    the Duffster's gretsches are one of those bucket list guitars - *the* bucket list guitar IMHO

    his sig falcons are mint as well - amongst other changes, they have silver instead of gold trim. if i had £3.5k spare i'd be galloping to whatever shop had stock

    he's supposedly in talks to have a 6228 sig as well

    and Gibson are revisiting his Ronno-inspired LP custom as a sig to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Sonic Temple

    more gear here - including some T Types he uses for recording mainly

    and quite a cool rig rundown here - the guy comes across as really humble, down to earth and realises how lucky he is, with an earthy sense of humour

    i think you all now know my #1 guitar influence...

    Fischer Z's main man John Watts was playing a modded Gibson Melody Maker when the band started.

    It had a Humbucker fitted and a Fender non trem strat bridge.

    Then in the early eighties he had it refinished in a very fetching shade of sky blue.


    And yeah, he STILL plays that guitar today.

    Am I allowed to put myself in here? Years ago I was in a band called the Greg Brady Overdrive and I covered my '62 Jazz in crushed velvet...it became my signature for years and used get lots of remarks. Still have the bass and it's still the best playing and best sounding bass I've ever had the privilege of touching!

    That white '59 3P is one of my dream guitars. So unbelievably sexy, and so totally cool.
