Only GAS I have is for gear I already own (well nearly). GrantB is currently doing a refret and working his magic fingers on my R8, and I hope to get the 65 Amps 'London Pro' from Molly at some point in August. Should make for a good combo I would've thought

I find the American Original 60s Tele in LPB quite temping too.
I sold one just like that last week. Played like a million bucks!

I think Grant was quite taken with it. Sorry Grant, it's gone now.

Not double-bound. But the American Original series one would do just fine. :-)

It looks a bit like an Epiphone Century, or something very like it.
Correct, 1955 to be precise.

Indeed I often wonder where Norman is now. Probably wintering with his mother in Guildford. A cat, rain, Vim under the sink, and both bars on. But old now, there is no true beauty without decay.

Wow (and sigh). That is the thin line version. I wonder if there are any in NZ?

I can't actually find that model on the Godin website. Didn't you have a Godin once, Nik?

Night shift is terrible for GAS. I'm really trying to stop myself from buying a Ventris reverb.

Yes, I had a 5th Avenue model, single P90 neck pickup. It was really nice. Rockshop have them for about $1200

Not a fan of the finish, otherwise that looks pretty cool.

Looking at a rejig of my pedalboard. Few things I want to add or replace:
- Nicer delay to replace DD-3. I like the look of the 80tape In Limbo but I'm not sure if they're still making them
- Fuzz to replace big muff, something a bit weirder ideally
- Isolated power supply
- Something else? Chorus/trem or something. Will know it when I see it...
