  1. Aye a good exchange for a jap tele I no longer used, was really impressed with how well it looked and felt, only kept it for a day then sent it off to my luthier to have the work done, gonna be gone for about 3 weeks, so looking forward to getting it back...
  2. Just brought me a 89 Korean Sheraton and I've gotta say its a fantastic guitar, fit and finish is so much better than my Chinese made Sheraton Union Jack, pickups aren't as good admittedly but then the Chinese one has Gibson 57 mini humbuckers, but getting all the electrics and pickups changed to bare knuckle stormy Monday's, Can't wait to get it back in a few weeks 😁

  4. Well I've brought it, so when I get some pictures sorted I'll get it posted 😁
  5. I may just add a guard to it, save the top, as I do get a bit carried away at times 😉
  6. Thank you for the swift reply, I'm in the uk matey so those prices are out the window 😉 I'll put it to him, see if I can get a little summit summit knocked off. It's listed at a good price in my eyes, for over here anyway. And thanks for the almost birthday wish 😁
  7. I have the opportunity to purchase a 2003 Amber supreme, which is in very good condition, my only concern is it has two holes where a pick guard had been mounted, did they ever come with a pick guard? And if not, and I add one, will it detract from the value of the guitar? I'm not looking to sell it at all as its a 40th birthday present from the wife, but just so I can base what price he's asking for it is all. Many thanks
  8. I can't believe I was so stupid, was playing the guitar the other week and I can't believe I never noticed the hairline fracture on the neck of the guitar where it meets the headstock!!!! It's in both sides, I was ready to send it to the luthiers to be set up properly when I noticed the damage, contacted Andertons right away, who told me the guitar was checked before it left there warehouse, and that it could only have been done in transit, luckily they have a good stock, so they're sending me a new one out for Friday and taking the old one away, which I can't fault them for, just wish I would have noticed it sooner!!!!! Fingers crossed it's as good as this one without the damage!!!
  9. I brought a 1960's tribute plus a few months back, and it's probably my best guitar for the money, £529 with a hard case, it looks stunning it plays beautifully and the gibson pickups sound really nice, the finish was pretty much spot on quality wise, I can't fault it.
  10. Glad to hear it's all sorted, I use photobucket to put pictures on here, easy enough to do.
  11. Having had the guitar a couple of weeks now I can definitely say..... I love it, for the very minor spoils, I.e the f holes finish..... And ..... Erm that's it I think on mine??!!!! It plays really nice, the feel of the neck is amazing, nice and slim, smooth, feels a bit like my epi 60's tribute LP, it's sits nicely when playing seated, nice weight and feel, tonally it sounds really nice to my ears, through a Marshall MG 250dfx amp, understand I haven't been playing that long so others will need to do the playing side of it, but to me it's really easy to play,I still have my first guitar an epi LP standard, and I find that unplayable now due to the thick neck but this is so much easier, I think I'm definitely suited to slim necks..... I have a lesson later tonight so I'll be taking it to that, I'll see what my teacher has to say and report back. 😊
  12. That a stunning looking guitar you've got yourself 😊
