Very good work! Yes I have to agree you have a difficult task ahead of you, but this is a very good step in the right direction. Hopefully I will be able to lend a hand and support whenever I can. I have a logo or two that I designed on my desktop for the site a bit ago which I should be able to sen...

Sounds like a pretty cool concept. I could also help out with code if you needed it, depending on what you decide to code in that is. Also with graphics if you needed that too, though I am leaving the country in a couple of weeks so I can't do graphics after that but could probably still code. Good ...

That looks pretty sharp. When someone first pointed out Edwards that caught my eye, there's something about the black on black that looks sharp. Customs are definatly a somewhat aquired taste which I'm not sure I have, except this one!!

I got my last tokai from Coda Music, and I have shopped in both stores. They were very helpful and friendly in Stevenage, happy to check the stock of the other store in Luton for me. I wasn't in the Luton branch for as long and it was quite packed at the time so the staff were a bit more busy though...

Amazing what they can do with plywood these days..... indeed, I recently aquired a guitar unseen and it seems to have plywood down the centre, and some sort of moulded plastic with a flame graphic on it. I got it for chips so it is no big deal, though if I were to get one of these gibson fakes I wo...

I have a tokai sg60/70 and I love it. It is my number one guitar. When I got it I also looked at plenty of gibson SG specials just like you, but I decided on the Tokai. I would definatly reccomend it (though obviously not to the exclusion of other guitars - I have heard for example very good things ...

That looks pretty good actually, it would not look half as nice with black pickup covers! Like you say, I wouldn't pick that colour right away but the white covers really set it off nicely. How old is it?

I wonder what the yellow in those photos looks like in person? Looks a bit more lemon than TV..... It does look like a lemon colour now you mention it! Looking at them with fresh eyes today I think that colour is pretty nice looking. You're right though they could look different in the flesh, but n...

Powerbridge vs Acoustic simulator

Has anyone got any experience with the fishman power bridge ? And or with the boss acoustic simulator pedal? I have heard the boss pedal 'in action', it sounds pretty good but I think that is going directly to the sound board/pa not through a guitar amp. I only want to use it casually, not to replac...

I love the SG Jr guitars! If I were gonna have one of those colours, I think that the yellow would be the one, though having seen the white LP special on there, I am pretty confident that an SG jr would look smart in white!!

While I was at work I was thinking about if I could afford this, every hour there brings me ?6 closer, less what I already have on my credit card for the last one.. I do still fancy the tremelo arm, though I'd have to think about the tuning problems, I was having a look over ebay and found this thin...

Songs that I know pretty well I can do this with, it pretty much just takes being familiar with the songs and the lyrics. Like it's already been said it takes time to get used to it. I know some people who sing lead and play guitar, would actually like to find someone to sing so they can concentrate...

now that looks nice! Defo my kind of thing going on. It's funny there was a time that I didn't like SGs or those tremolos, but now I can't get enough of them! I thiunk that it's definatly right that it's an aesthetic thing, no other piece of kit really has the look of that tremolo, and on the right ...

This is definate inspiration food for a project that I have been wanting to do for ages now. I really like that finish, and I might actually have to make a note to myself about it for when the time of my project comes.

Nice work so far! Looking forward to more updates!
