  1. I would like to see a CJ165 maple back and sides. They are not made at all now don't know why as everyone who owns a CJ165 loves them.
  2. Yes I remember the Ovation years, everyone had one even Paul McCartney, you don't see him or anyone else for that matter with one now! can't say I liked them they would slide off your knee if you were sitting or roll around if you were standing. A pal in my band had one bought it in NY red, nice to look at but not for me. I wonder where they all are now. Guitars like everything go in fashions in the sixty's and seventies in was dreadnoughts now it's back to the guitar shaped guitars like the old days.
  3. Guitars get over rated by who plays them. take the Epiphone Casino John Lennon played a 60s USA made but the Japanese made model is a better guitar at a fraction of the price.
  4. Didn't John Lennon have a J160E !
  5. I have a 70s Ibanez copy. I'm sure you can't tell the difference, apart from the price. As they are no longer made they are pretty hard to find but a wonderful guitar if you can find one.
  6. Nice! haven't heard that song for years, well done Sal.
  7. So sorry to hear of your health issues Jinder. I wish you a speedy recovery.
  8. One point you might like to consider is Gibsons keep there value so there is a fair chance you can own one for ten years and get your money back when you sell. So cheap at the price over all.
  9. Well I like it Lars, good song good story, just leave it as it is.
  10. Really nice version Sal, I enjoyed it.
  11. I thing it is interesting and different enough to busk but you did a wonderful job on it anyway.
  12. Nostalgia is an amazing thing, here we are listening to tribute bands from 50 years ago. Imagine if in 1970 we were listening to tribute bands of the 20s.
  13. Well I guess Sals has been doing it for a year or two. You can do it, it's down to practise. Try singing to a simple rock n roll song like Buddy Holly song. First sing to the record without your guitar then add the guitar without your voice then all three. You have lift off!!! Let me know how you get on.
  14. Nice version Sal, well none.
  15. Have any members seen the Stewart Copeland program on BBC 4 Adventures in Music? it's very good. Of course there is a contribution from Sting but what guitar is he playing, it's a parlour guitar, could be a Martin but I'm not sure. Any ideas?
