Guitar price increase

As you see the alembics up 4 sale!!
I thought id buy a new jaydee bass and with the change a used 1973 fender stratocaster
Now a couple of years ago a new jaydee bass would have been say £1800 and fender stratocaster 1970’s job about £600
Well ive been on the blower 2day to jaydee
A new series one jaydee with inlays £2250
A new reissue 70’s strat is £1300 or £1300 for a vintage used 70’s strat!!
WTF!!!
So ive decided ill buy a used 80’s jaydee and a used 70’s strat
Which should = £2300
Nice exchange for mark king signature alembic!! or is it 😐

So if you want to learn about linux please feel free to attend
There is no joining fee like linux its free!!

Linux is a alternative operating system as like using microsoft windows

Morecambe hotel gig

Did morecambe hotel saturday last night
Bloody good turn out!! She defo has sorted the place out
I played around three months ago with natural thing and it was quite dead
3 months later she has it booming!! and the place does food at good prices!!
We went on at 8.45 and finished up around 11.45
The land lady bought us a few pints what a cracker!!
Had two miserable buggers in one was a old fart of a man so i told him to cheer up over the mic and asked someone to buy him a tequila!!!
The other was some spoilt young girl who wasn’t open minded to music and just wanted bloody green day!!! Kids nowadays ey!!!!
You cant please em all!!!!! but apart from that a bloody stormer!!
Lookin forward to going back!!!!!!!!
Just wish i wouldnt have partied after!! bloody rough today!!!

 

Telecaster protone thinline

I got a protone telecaster about six months ago been gigging it but i noticed i was always on the bridge pickup
Wonder why? well try it on the neck pick up !! proper muddy > bloody awful!!
So i ripped of the old gold cover like they did in the old days!!
Its give the guitar a new lease of life!! it sounds wicked now!!!!
So if you have a protone get your screwdriver and pliers out and whip it off!!
There is a bit off wax on it just scrape it off > i accually think it looks better
And it acctually sounds like a tele now!!!!
