  1. A Jazzmaster without the wacky pickup controls no one uses? that's different. And quite nice looking. Enjoy.
  2. sad to hear that - he had many positive contributions and advice for others.
  3. 'Scales


    very nice! 5. Boxy Lady
  4. He was in a mainly covers band called the Party Boys (yeah, I know...) here in Oz and I saw them a couple of times in the late 80's including opening for AC/DC. I'm sure he would have had a lot of fun times over the years, so, well played Alan.
  5. The batwing looks cool, but I gotta say its a really long headstock... and coupled with the deep headstock angle .... and (at least for the late 60's) the narrowest ever nut across the neck.... and that it tends to sit well out to the neck side of your body when paying given the body shape and strap button position.... you need to be really careful to avoid bumping it on anything cos it would snap so easily!
  6. I have a 1969 Epi in the Coronet shape but with an original 60's Epi mini humbucker. Great pickup if you ever want to swap one in for a P90. Awesome clear cut through compared to full HB but still n o hum. These are different to Gibson mini HB's I believe.
  7. Seems you are not alone in such R'n'R dramas jdgm....the similarities here are uncanny!!! (albeit with more of an Australian approach to working through such issues ) (hope it brings you a smile - you are not alone)
  8. I checked a video or two of your band - very much to my taste! great stuff.
  9. R'n'f'n'R!!!! What a bummer, but then seriously - if a pub's going to put on an Oasis tribute band outside in late English summer wtf do they expect? polite clapping? no vomit? I hope there's a mature and professional jazz band somewhere in your near future to rekindle enthusiasm and avoid such unpleasantness.
  10. seems the transformation from "Lifestyle Brand" to Private Equity Firm appears to be nearing completion.
  11. lovely now, do you keep it or sell it to the highest bidder for several times what you paid ?
  12. Congratulations on living one heck of a great life and thanks for sharing your talent Charlie!!
  13. looks and sounds nice...and very seventies vibe to that paintjob
  14. It could well be the same guitar, as you say he tinkered around a lot with 'em and it could easily enough be revised as shown. (hopefully so as it adds to the heritage!). Oh yeah, and then some!! That guitar appeals to me very much (assuming it's playable and structurally OK) regardless whether it belonged to Les or it belonged to you.
  15. Mick Taylor - Sway (outro solo) - the phrasing. the phrasing. Dave Gilmour - Comfortably Numb (second solo - live at Pompeii is best ever) - nod slowly, shed a tear and punch the air all at one. Paul Kossoff - Heartbreaker - a sad and touching parting gift. Jimmy Page - Since I've Been Loving You - immense and evocative ... spring instantly to mind... not bad for starters though!
