Peavey Foundation - Roger Glover, Ritchie Blackmore and Deep Purple. . . . . . .

Well, there you have it! 

Roger Glover, in the Perfect Strangers era, weilding
a white Peavey Foundation.

There's another fella in the band, next to him. . .
Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr Ritchie Blackmore.
Playing Bass??
Looks like he "borrowed" Roger's Foundation.

Here are some more shots of the Peavey in action.

I already have two Foundations, a Gold one and a fretless
in a Sunburst but for some time, fancied one like Roger used.

Well, some months ago, I finally got one and have used it
quite a lot. Very nice, indeed!

At this point, I am going to say "bah humbug!"

Having put off doing this one, I finally got some shots of the
beast, on a brand new flash card.
Yep, you've guessed it - will not open!
Not sure what I have done but it just won't have it!

So, determined to put this post up - this is part one and
pics of my white Foundation, are to follow.

Back soon.

Cheers. :)


Ok, pics now sorted.

This one is mine.
I have played this a lot recently - played it at rehearsal 
on Monday.
Just a really nice bass, to join its brothers! :)

A full house!

Cheers. :)

Speedster Travel Guitar. . . . . .

Been travelin' :)

So, took the Speedster and my new toy - Tascam GB10. 

Now, I know what you must be thinking - "Great shot, Eric"!!!

Errmm, no!!

There was a way better one - all artistic but that seems to have
disappeared/been deleted/not sure what happened.

This is a better shot of the beast.

This fitted inside a suitcase and went in the hold, with no 
trouble at all.
Took it out, plugged it into the Tascam. . . . and away you go.

Great bit of kit - hours of fun - great for when it's raining!!!

It's a clever design, as are a lot of travel guitars and rested
on your knee, very comfortable to play.
I didn't take the upper extension, on this occasion - which
makes it feel more like a traditional guitar but it still felt fine.

Next time - some Peavey and Deep Purple links.

Cheers. :)
