  1. I have a new single out. Any opinions gratefully received ☺️

    25 May 2017 - 09:48 AM

    Hi all,
    I've got a new album on the way in July, my tenth long player. It's a mixture of original songs rooted in mid-20th-century Americana and versions of songs from that era that I love.

    The first single from the album came out this week, it's a version of the '30s Harburg/Gorney Standard 'Brother Can You Spare A Dime?', recorded using my friend Garry Smith's beautiful Regal Tricone resonator.

    I'd love to know your thoughts on's at all the usual download/streaming places but I know commercial links are frowned upon here so I've put an MP3 up on SoundCloud to share.

    Here's the link:
  2. Paradigm strings ongoing report

    12 May 2017 - 09:13 AM

    Hi all,
    I've been suckered in by the hype and have bought a set of Ernie Ball Paradigm acoustic strings...the ones they claim are the toughest ever made and guarantee for 90 days against tarnish or breakage.

    I play for a living and 90 days equates to about 70hrs of playtime for me. These strings will have to be some sort of miracle wires to withstand 70hrs without failing! I usually use D'Addario 12-54 85/15s and change them every two to three gigs.

    I went for the 80/20 Paradigms and was pleasantly surprised by the lavish packaging and quality of the strings-the plain strings have a bronze wrap wire around the ball end windings which is a nice touch and will be kinder on bridge plates and pins, too. They were hella pricey 18.99 a set!) so they need to be something special.

    I've just strung up my SJ200 and am off to play the first of four gigs I have coming up in the next three days...I'll report back on the longevity but first impressions are that these are very sweet sounding strings. A bit less sizzle than a fresh set of D'Addarios but of course these are 80/20 not 85/15. I expected the extra tensile strength to come with a tradeoff of tone loss, but they certainly sound lovely at this stage.
  3. Fire Eye Red-Eye preamp...who uses one?

    07 May 2017 - 09:20 AM

    Hi all,
    I'm interested in doing away with all the batteries and crap in my guitars and putting in some passive pickups (I already have a K&K in my '67 J45 and would look to put a passive Fishman undersaddle in my SJ100 as an experiment) and having a proper high quality Pre/DI on my board with an FX loop to run my OD, delay and looper in.

    The Red-Eye seems the perfect solution but I've had no hands on experience with them. Can anyone chime in with some real world testimonials?
  4. VERY early EL-00

    07 April 2017 - 07:50 AM

    Hi all,
    I own one of the very first EL-00 models, which is shaped like a Gibson L-1 and not like an L-00 at all.

    It's got a narrow D profile neck but is surprisingly playable now I've set it up properly. I've had it a couple of years, paid 140 for it with fitted Epi hard case and a Fishman Rare Earth 'bucker installed.

    I love this little guitar, it'd been played heavily before I owned it and is amazingly open and resonant. Loads of character and will do honky blues and feathery fingerstyle beautifully depending on right hand technique, and copes excellently with light strumming too. I like to use it for flyaway gigs when I don't want to trust airline staff with my Gibsons, but I'm so attached to it I find myself worrying just as much!!

    Anyway, I digress...why did Epi change the body shape after the first run, and do away with the L-1 shape in favour of the L-00 body?

    Any info would be really interesting!
  5. Fake D'Addario strings

    21 March 2017 - 02:45 AM

    I recently bought a stack of sets of D'Addario 80/20 Bronze 12-54 strings from an Amazon marketplace seller for around 2.50 a set. I was told they were on clearance because the packaging wasn't the latest iteration, but when they arrived they all had one thing in common-they sounded like a wasp in a tin can.

    I did some more research yesterday and according to the D'Addario website, they're fake...I was surprised but not entirely shocked.

    Apparently fake strings are rife at the moment. Has anyone else come across any?

    Hello Jinder - Did you see the 2 Donovan tunes played on the famous J-200 ?
    Just wanted to put that brick where it belongs.

    I've read your posts and you are very informed. Your comment to the guy who isn't in love with his hummingbird was very interesting. Do you know any similar information on the J 45 custom Rosewood? I love that kind of trivia and love to know it.
    Best regards and Happy Holidays,
    Phillip (Tman)
