A quid? As that slang for a pound? :roll: Yes. I love the way some people put "from my private collection" on their Ebay auctions. Wonderful middle-class pomposity worthy of Hyacinth Bucket! What they mean, of course, is "it's been under the bed for two years and SWMBO wants it shifted". :D adrian

Uh-oh... :oops: The very first record I ever bought was a Wombles single. And I liked it so much, I bought another a few weeks later. Well, I was only 5 at the time. The first album I bought was considerably less cool... a Status Quo compilation when I was 12. I saved up for weeks (do kids know the ...

If anyone was initially put off by the huge high bid on the first day, rest assured that it's a lot lower now... someone typed the wrong number by mistake!

Left handed Goldstar (1985) on Ebay UK

Well, I decided to sell it. It's a nice guitar but I really don't need duplicate maple-board Strats cluttering up the house. Full details here...

Heh! No flames from me! I think everyone's got their own "too many notes" threshold... the same solo can be exciting and exhilarating for one person, but boring and unwelcoming for another. I know what you mean about Aynsley, though... he's got a real knack for hitting those simple phrases so well. ...

Do you want to tell us a bit about the guitar, and post a few pics? Maple or rosewood board? What colour? I'll be back with pictures and a proper description when I list it on Ebay, but to give you a rough idea... It's a left-handed 1985 ST55, maple fretboard and metallic red. No serial number (I g...

Re: Guthrie.... IMHO, I've never seen someone as totally gifted and as full of natural talent as him. In 2004 I went to see him every thursday at the Bassment in Chelsford for 10 weeks and every week he would be doing something new/different/awe inspiring. I know good when I see it and man...he's g...

Aha, thanks. I had an idea they couldn't be the originals, seeing as they don't match any of the normal descriptions. Maybe I'll Ebay it with the Kinmans, given that I don't have the original pickups. At least I can then make a feature of them, rather than sheepishly having to admit to "three uniden...

Anyone ID these pickups from my ST55?

I'm coming to the conclusion that I should sell my 1985 Goldstar Sound. It's a lovely guitar, one of the best-sounding Strats I've heard, but I just don't play it... my Warmoth/Fender mongrel just seems so much more versatile because of the compound fretboard. However, I'm not sure whether to Ebay i...

So Paul Kossoff sounds emotionally retarded when he solo's? Eric Clapton...Tears in heaven is an emotionally bereft tune? He didn't say that, though... he said emotionally *flawed*. That suggests a difference, not an absence or a restriction. And it may be true, or it may be false... at least we're...

Well, part of it is because the Daily Mail and Daily Express insist on using Chemsol stats for their articles :wink:

With stuff like Oasis and U2 and the crap that's around now like Greenday , even Britney Spears etc I can just about shout the chords out as the song is playing when I'm hearing it for the first time probably because it just sounds like remanufactured stuff from other songs. That's just personal mu...

Tangentially... I noticed in a recent Fripp diary entry that he's looking at ways of raising money for a permanent Guitar Craft headquarters near his home in the Midlands. One of his possible solutions is to sell a *1959* Les Paul. http://www.dgmlive.com/diaries.htm?entry=6936 Keep your eyes on Ebay...
