I don't dare to throw the dart here - might hit you, , , or myself in the leg.
Feel like saying a slot-head, but could kill the canary by doin' that.
A Harmony Sovereign (which would suit you), , , no, now the arrow is in the aquarium waiting for Zomb to get it.
Stoooop. .

Pass !

Oh how I long for a harmony sovereign
But no

Iím getting on my own nerves now , and usually hate this sort of stuff as I nevert get it

This is a guitar I bought when I was 17 or so ... canít remember when
Itís 25 years old then or so maybe 27/28 . But itís just a laminate Yamaha
I vaguely remember giving it to my uncle because he said my niece was thinking of playing guitar. Long forgotten , then my mum said other day that my uncle was clearing out and did I want my old guitar back. I said yes.
Got it today , cleaned it with mr sheen and put some strings on it !
Had a little nostalgic moment


Doesnít sound too awful does it ?

Alriiiiite, , , never underestimate an old Yam.
Sounds quite good (let's hear some faded steel).
Like the look - they still use that little twig. It's on my burst FG 820.


You need to take this one to a garden-party. Ever heard of those. .

I was there too - someone brought a walrus, , , there was magic in the air.

But bbg, I think the Yam sounds a bit like this one looks -

How it sounded was a pleasant surprise. Iím just glad to have it back. Is a nice feeling to have something that was so important to me at that age return back again.
I wouldíve loved to let you hear it as it was because Iím pretty sure the strings were the same ones from 25 odd years ago , but I was scared to touch them. One was also missing so I just stripped the guitar , cleaned it , cleaned it again ,restrung it , laughed at the paint missing from the bridge . Nowadays weíre worried about rosewood or micarta density and thereís this thing with , I donít know , a piece of chipboard or something
The recording is lacking in perfect tuning , Iím not sure yet if thats the 3 minute old strings or a further isssue with the 1.99 tuning pegs

I shall do a proper recording at the weekend while I spend time with the old best friend from the past

No idea how it was stored all this time . Will ask uncle next time I see him , but it cratainly had no case and looked like itís been in a garage behind the half empty paint tins

Laminates definitely age is the conclusion



Sorry about there being no gibson content but I knew one or two of you would have a half interest in this hardly front page news story
