    Wanted to do a group photo before the weather turned. Hauled it all out on the deck for a picture today. Wish I could make the photos bigger.

    Nice pics! You are correct; it is almost getting too cold here in Halifax. I played outside Friday night until 11:30pm and it was plus 11 C. My fingers were having a hard time hitting the solos!

    Since you're from Halifax, I have to ask…have you ever heard "Halifax" by the Hampton Grease Band? Prepare yourself…



    You need to get past about five minutes of Bizarro World vocals at the beginning (although I love this crazy, off the wall song from the first second) to hear some mind-numbingly incredible guitar playing.

    Wow, nice collection; that should keep you warm this winter. We loved our visit to Halifax, what a beautiful city!

    Wow. That's a beautiful pile of stuff.

    How old is the tweed Fender amp on the left and can you tell us about the dreadnought on the right?

    Nice!

    Thanks for the kind words, fellas.

    The Gretsch is a 5120, not a 6120.

    I've had a few Strats but I've never found one worth keeping.

    The tweed is a '58 Princeton & the dread is a Yamaha fg345 from the early 80's. It's the guitar I've had the longest. I gigged and busked with it for years in Europe, on the West Coast and in Toronto. It's mostly retired now as the frets are worn out and it's not worth bringing back but I'll never part with it. Lot of memories with that guitar.

    Nice stuff, is that a Supro amp on the bottom left of the screen?

    It's not a Supro, it's a National (Glenwood 90). It bears some resemblance because Supro & National were both manufactured by Valco. Sounds killer.
