Happy New Year.

Hi to all out there - Happy New Year! : )

I am still having a good sort out and have been playing instruments that have not seen the light of day for a while and having a lot of fun.

Guitars and Basses For Sale. . . .

Back in the day, that is what you searched for in the press and musical press.
Now, it's on google and the choice is mind boggling.
Only today, I spotted a Kawai Alembic "tribute". . . the one that got away!
Anyway, I have promised to let some go to new homes, so the two images below show a couple that have broken free already .

 The Twin Neck Jaydee went home some years ago, to the original owner and to follow that theme, the Peter Cook Axis Guitar also went back to the original owner and originator, Peter, himself.

 The Jaydee, being Rocked, as it should be!

Looks great on Fez, being over six foot. . . I am a little shorter!!

The first two shots are by Lars Mullen, as are the ones below.

So, you see, it can be done!
Both found new homes.

I am still going through the big sort out and will come back to you soon.

Cheers. :)

Basses Galore. . . .

Following on from my post of August 31st, more gorgeous basses, photographed by Lars Mullen.
As I said in that post, it's time for someone else to enjoy some of these - not sure which ones yet, it will take me a while to sort that out.

 Nice!! :)

Flat Eric's Collection - End of the Road?

Hi to all out there. :)

It is not as daunting as it might sound, as just over three years ago, Lars Mullen and myself got together to photograph some of the collection, as I was thinking of letting some of them go and making more time for the ones I kept.
It was a great way of making a record of them, with some pro shots and I have to say, Lars worked flat out all day, aside from a quick sandwich and a drink, it was full on from the word go!

Well, I changed my mind and thought that I would do it the following year - 2015 but that didn't happen either.
So, I have been going through them all and decided that this year, it's time to let go and give someone else the pleasure of some of the Great/Rare/Unique instruments I have collected over the years.

I have no idea which one is to go first but I will be certainly having one last rehearsal with each one. 

Listed below are some of the images Lars took and I labelled up, so he could identify them - some this time and some next post.

Some of these may find new homes, some may not but I feel now is the time to make a start.

Posts have been a little slow but I promise to be back with more, very soon!!

Cheers. :)

Back in circulation. . . .

Dear readers and followers. :)

If you drop in here on a fairly regular basis, you will have noticed that the content has been a little sparse, over the last few months.

The truth is, I have suffered some ill health during this year and my mind has been on other things, as I'm sure you can understand.

Now things are getting back to normal, I am going to kick start the blog again and carry on listing the rest of the collection.

So, sit tight and over the next couple of weeks, I'll get the ball rolling again.

Cheers. :)

Firebird Twin Neck, from years ago. . . .

This it it!!

 This was taken by the owner, at the time it was in his possession.

He was based and still is, in Nottinghamshire - I acquired it from North Yorkshire, so at some point it "headed north"

I haven't managed to speak to him yet but will give him a call in the next few days, to get the full story.

Back soon.

Cheers. :)

Firebird Twin Neck....

Hi to all!
I really am trying to add more content - so many more instruments to go, just seem to run out of time!!

Anyway. . . . one of the original owners of this little beauty has contacted me - he had it around 35 years ago!!

See more of my images here:
Peter Cook Guitars

He has a 35mm shot of it, from back then, which I am hoping to see real soon.

Will come back as soon as I see it.

Cheers. : )
