    Hello there!

    Just found this site while researching a '96 52 reissue I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on. Have a few others too... S__1490948.jpg S__1490952.jpg S__1490953.jpg 6EBBD1E7-C078-429A-A438-6E7B632221D4.jpg S__1490950.jpg

    Two of my favorite places in the world. Ireland and Thailand have their own beauty. My question to you is : Did you move ALL those guitars with you when you moved?

    I was in a bit of a rush; I'd just returned from working in Saudi and had to make a snap decision; do I stick around and tough the CV out or escape while I can...this was in February...so I booked a flight to Thailand. My house wasn't ready for me to live in and my ex's couch was too hard. No guitars made the trip and my guitars from Saudi arrived a few weeks later after I'd gone...glad I did as the ROW went crazy while Thailand just slowed down.

    I did have a wee delivery yesterday of this lovely used MIJ '62 custom, a Blackstar amp has been ordered too... S__12304388.jpg S__12304386.jpg

    The MIJ tele has been subject to a really good set up by a local guy, plays like a dream but buzzes like crazy due to the 60 cycle nuisance...aargh!

    The guy I bought the Jazzmaster from had the same issue & changed to Lindy Fralins so I've ordered a set from the website, white split blades, I'll change the pick guard to tortoiseshell & stick a Bigsby on while I'm at it!

    The Blackstar amp in Surf Green is fantastic as are my new Strymon pedals...

    The '97 52 Tele arrived & is superb, aged beautifully and a delight to play & look at. Cannot say the same for the Jazzmaster...beautiful condition, like new. I get the impression the guy ordered it from Yamano's in Japan, it arrived and he just could not get on with it. It's strung with 12's, badly needs a set up and is downright heavy...he had a set of LF's but never even fitted them.

    Anyways...Happy Easter to one & all. S__12361754.jpg
