I'm gassing hard for an ESP M-1, the black model with 1 Bridge pickup and reverse headstock. I've been after one of these since I started playing guitar and still haven't found one for sale! Can anyone help me out? I know they're pretty rare in NZ so it's a long shot!

This. I'm pretty happy with my guitar collection at present (of course, so I bloody should be). And same goes for my keyboards (Korg Kronos, Nord Electro 2, and Roland F120). My amps are gathering dust because I enjoy the Kemper more than my actual amps (!!!!!!). So now its all about some skills.

Actually, I've been a bit distracted from guitar recently, not just by work but also because I've rather been enjoying my jazz piano playing :)

On the lookout for a fuzz factory, or something similarly silly.

It sounds great and it's 'priced to move'. About $30k landed? If I win Lotto this week I'll have them flight case and send it your way.

Mate! You're a legend. Thanks. :D
Believe it or not, that Manzer is quite a bargain. Especially when compared with something by James Taylor's guitar builder.

I've got all this nice gear in my man cave and yet all I want is to go and hang out with some mates. Play some music, moan about work, generally waste time kind of thing.

The house is OK, and I love my bubble, but I'm living in Oestrogen Manor at the moment...

I read the story of how James Taylor came to be playing his guitars. He sneaked one into Taylor's hotel room. I just hope he was paid for it. I'd hate to think someone would do all that work and a guy that could afford the guitar didn't have to pay for it.

Crazy expensive though. :-(

Getting harder to fill the days. Mother-in-law is still here as she hasn't been able to transit through Singapore. It's like a perfect-storm of FFS.

I might remove a brick fireplace today.
