Enjoy!

Re: Thomann/Harley Benton L/H GS Travel Guitar

Hi Brad, Thank you for your kind words. These are dark times indeed and for me having some sort of structure and enjoying what I have always enjoyed (ie all things guitar!) is very important. I'm also finding that not planning too far ahead and taking things as they come a good coping strategy for m...

Re: Thomann/Harley Benton L/H GS Travel Guitar

Hi G, The Crafter was a very nice guitar: http://www.crafterguitars.uk.com/guitars/8-series/ I got it for a steal on ebay for £80 including a Ritter gig bag. Althought it was second hand it really was as new with no dings or scratches. The only issue was that it was very badly set up, but for £40 th...

Brian May

Since the start of the lock down I have been watching Brian May's videos on his Youtube channel. Words of wisdom, micro concerts and guitar lessons, all done from his living room with his Red Special (or replica) and a small Vox amp. Absolutely inspiring stuff and done in a spirit that reflects our ...

Thomann/Harley Benton L/H GS Travel Guitar

A few years ago I had a really nice Crafter D8 acoustic guitar, but had to sell it due to a frozen shoulder which made it difficult to play; I needed to find something smaller. So I had a conversation with Gordon via his forum. As we know he has used several smaller guitars for both live performance...

Re: 12 string guitars

Thanks for your kind comments Brad. Apologies for taking the thread away from 12 strings, but below are a couple of links which illustrate the value of the forum when it comes to getting advice from Gordon. The background was that I had a shoulder problem and so needed a smaller acoustic guitar. htt...

Re: 12 string guitars

Nickswitz & Mike, I think the point here is that some of the guitars mentioned in this thread were DESIGNED to be 6 string instruments. When a 12 string version comes out there are always going to have to be compromises, whether that is short instrument life and frequent repairs, using lighter g...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Guitar of the Month - John Bailey Double Neck

Great piece in G's news update about this guitar. Em and myself found a copy of Jan 1976 Guitarist magazine in Bridport a couple of years ago which had an ad for the JB double neck, placed by Ralph Denyer of Guitar Handbook fame, for £250 (around £1,800 in today's money!). Obviously we gave this to ...

Re: My birthday coming up!

Hi Tom

I was 60 this year (8 April) and Birthdays certainly come around quicker the older you get!

By the way many thanks for your kind wishes about Dad - we both really appreciated them.

Roger :D
