Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, The 801 Live album was released in 1976, with Listen Now following in 1977. There was a tour to promote Listen Now with an 801 mark II band. I saw them play at Birmingham Town Hall and Phil Manzanera was superb, his only guitar being a late 50s Les Paul goldtop loaned to him by Lol Creme. ...

Oldbones,

Nice to find another Manzanera fan on the forum. Are you referring to the 801 Live album with Simon Phillips and Brian Eno?

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, Very true - my Tele copy was bought as a project guitar and I'd have been pleased if for £39 I'd just had a useable body and pick ups! As regards the Chord this video might interest you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64JWNC72ZiA There is a guitar shop in Warwick where the owner has been ...

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Oldbones, I have a Harrier Mistral, which cost £39.99 from ebay. It's a Tele copy. Although this guitar isn't perfect by any means, what it has done has made me appreciate the Tele as a guitar - very simple design, comfortable to play and some great tones too! I have fitted a Trev Wilkinson bridge a...

Re: Roland vs Blackstar

Just to let you all know that I bought a Microcube GX quite recently, s/h, but in as new condition for £75. This and the fact that it runs on batteries swayed me towards the Roland in the end. Very impressed so far, but still a lot to explore.

Thanks to all for the advice,

Roger

Re: John Wetton

Hi Roger Yes very sad news. I saw John Wetton play several times over the years, usually in association with Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry. However the last time I saw him perform live was in 2014 at Mr Kyps in Poole during the "Ravens and Lullabies" tour. Shortly before Gordon, Oliver and their ...

Re: Vintage VE2000GG 12 string - my experience

Oldbones, Just like you I have been playing a lot more ukulele than guitar recently. I'd thought about buying a ukulele lots of times, but around this time last year I saw a Puretone soprano in a charity shop going for £1.50! Although the colour was not the best (pink!), it was in good condition and...

Re: Vintage VE2000GG 12 string - my experience

Oldbones, I would like to add my condolences to those already posted. All too often Xmas is seen as a magical and happy time of year, but for many folks it is anything but and unfortunately they can be forgotten. It sounds as if your beloved wife has faced a long battle against cancer. May she rest ...

Yes a lot more expensive than my trusty (very) old Heriba, but I have to say that they look good and appear to be very well made!

Re: New Signature

Thanks Sue! I worked out how to do it a few minutes before your post when I thought I was seeing double :)

Thanks for your response and Happy New Year to you and Mike too!
