    If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

  • Sorry Paul, just my Gallows Humour.;)

    Good grief that seems years ago...... and I suppose it was?

    I'll never forget that afternoon, knocking on that Door just round the corner from Island Studios. That and your delight at taking out Howard whatsisnames knees with a Flight Case at the studios!!!:laughing::laughing:

  • Thought I'd re-post this link to Dave Dearnaley as it went missing.

    http://www.shedpickups.co.uk/asp/product.asp?product=107&cat=40&ph=&keywords=&recor=&SearchFor=&PT_ID=

    He refinished the Wilshire in my avatar and made a lovely job of it. I've also played the white SG Special on his webpage and can assure you that it looks totally right. :)

  • Hi,

    I'd recommend John at JXG Guitars, Newcastle Upon Tyne:

    JXG Guitars
    Unit 2 Ford Street
    Ouseburn
    Newcastle upon Tyne
    NE6 1NW

    tel: 0191 265 8519

    email: jxg@jxgguitars.co.uk

    John is a good friend of mine and I'd certainly not try to hide that fact. That said, I really am very very happy with John's work and would not waste my time or others if that wasn't the case. John has built a couple of guitars for me (see below) and has worked on all my guitars from ?200 Epi's to some vintage pieces. I'd recommend him no question and he's also very easy to deal with as well which is a real bonus I think.





    Cheers
    Hugh

  • I know an excellent chap who lives in Saffron Walden. It's about a 90 minute drive for me, so he must be good! I'm not sure whether he'd approve of me posting his details here, but if anyone needs an excellent tech in that part of the world, send me a message and I'll let you have his details.

  • I've just got back from having my Strat rescued by Bernie Goodfellow in Brighton. Nice guy, knows his stuff and doesn't charge the Earth. I came to him via recommendation from a friend who had a dreadful refret done on his '66 Strat that Bernie managed to sort out. He also builds bass guitars, (GB guitars). I'm not a bass player but to my untrained eye, (and ear), they look and sound a bit special.

  • Hi Jerry, did you per chanve see Bernie's beautiful Birdland whilst you were there?  A friend had a Nightingale Bass and it was astounding. ;)

    Alas no Rob but he did give me a demo of wonderful 6 string GB bass, the sounds coming from this thing were incredible. It looked like a 6 string Rumour with a neck was like a log.
