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. :-(


To be fair, Olson's artistry is on a plane of its own:

I really like the look of these...

The cheapest one in Blue would be my choice.

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


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.

Even better remove it then brick it back up
With her behind it :thumbup:

I was wondering if "removing a brick fireplace" was a euphemism.

My man cave is a joke, means I have less impetus to play. On the upside, had a zoom beersies session with the lads on Sunday arvo, that was a sanity saver.

Have an early 2000's Fulltone Ultimate Octave Fuzz pedal coming my way, also a Tumnus Deluxe. Looking forward to lockdown being lifted so I can fill in the gaps on my pedalboard

Badly gassing for a suitably old and smelly looking Strat, but it's gonna have to wait until I hit my next round of bonuses

I'm hoping to have another Strat heading my way before too long. Separate to that I'm back on Stratosphere contemplating a partscaster. Spendy though.

I'm getting a bit of ash from Kerry Truscott for a new tele body after the lockdown. Just been checking out necks on Warmoth and Stratosphere, might wait til the NZ$ is a bit more favourable.

A router bit, apparently not an "essential" item - if only I had a Bunnings account :( , I have different GAS to normal people

I have exactly that router bit! Not helpful I know, but only reasonably priced top bearing bit I could find!

I've just worn out my 3rd one but they get through a ton of work, great bits for the price - made in Italy

Have been watching a few demo's of this as I'm after a new OD pedal

I was leaning towards a Tumnus Deluxe but... think I could very well be hitting up Matt from ToneLounge for this once the lockdown is over :thumbup:
