    Welcome Mr M.....good to have you onboard.....[thumbup]

    Great thing about the guitar is it's infinite possibilities....

    Electrics are great to have in one's tool bag....and can blend really well with acoustics in a duo or band.....

    In our local circuit we have folk, bluegrass and popular genres catered for....[thumbup]

    People swap between guitar, banjo, mandolin, tenor guitar, fiddle, tin whistle and accordion....:-({|=

    Age range from 'talented teens' to 90yr old (accordion)......:blink:

    Great social scene....both plugged and unplugged round the table.....


  2. In Topic:1972 Gibson ES 320 Opinions Wanted

    19 April 2017 - 10:33 AM

    Excellent post....a guitar I had never heard of.....[thumbup]

    Love these slimline hollows to bits....

    Presumably offered as an alternative to the ES 330 and Epi Casino

    The rest, as they say, is history.....:blink:



    Just learned it's a presumably has a centre block....puts it into ES 335 etc territory.....Posted Image
  3. In Topic:Yazoo

    19 April 2017 - 10:13 AM

    Alison of the great female vocalists.....talented, honest, unhyped, great personality.....[thumbup]

    Vince Clarke....synth pop innovator....writer of huge hits for Depeche Mode and others....[thumbup]

    'Nobody's Diary' for moi and Mrs V continues to resonate as a beautiful song and performance....


  4. In Topic:Yet another sad loss

    17 April 2017 - 05:24 AM

    Sad to hear of Allan's passing.....

    Wondering if there were health issues.....seems young, but you never can tell....

    A musicians' musician.....hugely respected by his peers.....playing technical virtuousic jazz-fusion lines.....[thumbup]

    Probably held the 'Soft Machine' guitar place longer than anyone....[thumbup]

    Pioneered the 'Synthaxe' and other electric guitar tonal ideas....

    IMHO.....a little bit like the Be-Boppers.....very innovative and interesting.....slightly less appealing to the mainstream....[unsure]

    Gibson's Nighthawk.

    For years, I discounted them out of hand, based on looks alone... judging a book by its cover.

    Came the fateful day I had an opportunity to physically pick one up - the size, the scale, the weight, the neck - they all add up to probably the most comfortable guitar I can imagine. Plenty of usable sounds in a stock two-pickup Nighthawk, and I can see the folly of my narrow-mindedness. Complete 180.

    Yes indeed.....agree strongly with that sentiment.....[biggrin]

    IMO the Nighthawk is an easy handling Firebird, Les Paul and Strat all in one neat package

    Looks good and beautifully built too.....[thumbup]



    PS Referring to the 3 P/U version.....:blink:
