Topics I've Started

  1. new pick idea

    12 July 2017 - 09:20 AM

    I finished making this pick today. Its made out of one of my preferred pick materials, perspex.

    As I usually use tri-shapes, I thought I'd try a quad-shape. The meet angle of most tri-shapes is close to 90 degrees anyway.

    The main difference (apart from an extra contact point) is straight line profiles rather than curves. It makes a difference in use, though not a major one.

    Some of you know that I have spent a small fortune on picks over the last few years (could have paid for another guitar). One of the main things I've learned is that it takes a long time to evaluate a pick properly.

    I can tell if a guitar is any use within 30 seconds. A pick takes about 20 hours. So I'll be using this exclusively for at least a week.
  2. UK heatwave vs guitars

    21 June 2017 - 07:43 AM

    I bet uk luthiers are getting plenty of work during this heatwave. Only my 339 and Deuce remain unaffected. The LP & 650 have moved only very slightly. The high e on the 650 is fretting out on some whole tone bends. Itís still usable, but itís not right. The LP is doing the same, but slightly worse.

    The Esprit has moved the other way. Sounds fine. The action is a tad higher though. Iím not going to touch any of them. Iíll wait for the weather to change. Blown Out still have no gigs booked, but if one comes in Iíll use the Deuce. As I discovered last year, sweat is no good with the 339ís nitro finish.

    If Iím honest, everything is still playable, but they are no longer Ďperfectí.
  3. A Love So Beautiful

    I only just found out about this. The music maybe a bit mawkish for this forum but Roy made his songs work brilliantly regardless.

    Roy with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I don't know if it will be different enough from his classic recordings, but I will certainly want to hear it. Only thing is, the release date is November 3rd 2017. But at least that means they are taking no short cuts with it.

    The 50 year Sgt Pepper thread also put me in mind of the 50th anniversary (2013) of the Beatles uk tour with Roy. Roy was supposed to headline but...

  4. es-335 pics

    14 May 2017 - 11:25 AM

    someone near me has this ES-335 for sale. Its a 2009 model. I haven't seen it yet, nor asked any questions.
    I'm not a Gibson expert. Before I look any further can I have your informed opinions as to whether this appears genuine or not?

    Here are some pics:
