Yes very true, I have experienced female attention after gigs. Although my Fernandes RR with floyd Rose worked the best!
Oh and my steinberger spirit headless guitar

On a different note, have you done any refretting/dressing? I kind of gather from one of your posts somewhere on here you have done a fair bit of fixing and so on. Regards Ian I've only done nut and fret dressing and setups, but it's only recently that I actually figured out how to really set up a ...

Ian, there was another PP Goldstar that sold on ebay UK circa 2002. Don't know if that stayed in the UK though. All the other Pink ones are MPK or metallic pink to my knowledge and I think they are all at least a year older than PP. Interestingly, the codes on Paul's and yours are exactly the same....

Re: Pearl Pink ST55 Goldstar

Hi guys. Some of the older posters may remember my Pearl Pink ST55 - see here http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=4242&highlight= The only other one like this that I have ever seen belongs to mirrorboy. It has barely been played in its poor lonely life and not at all in the last 3 years so it...

Yeah thanks, that's a useful piece of info, because when I eventually get my Telecaster I definitely want to put one of those 4 position set-ups on it! I had to bend the contacts to 90 degrees on the bottom or I would have had to carve out an extra channel to make it fit. I have a new ate50 and am ...

Straplocks

I use schaller straplocks so I have 2 straps that I can use on any guitar as they all have the locking posts.
Found it good method when gigging as they never dropped off and I didn't need to remember extra straps. You can buy just the strap posts on ebay

He's obviously moving between Phrygian dominant and Hungarian modes. He's far to advanced for rest of the band.

Joking aside I did want to do that to an old bass player in my band who played a whole bridge section 1 fret down!!!!!!!!

Certainly looks like a mid 80's. Very nice! I believe Mirrorboy here has something very similar? Yes indeed, I am now the proud owner of said guitar. The 55 denotes a custom colour. Mine has the vi pickups but I find them too thin for my style of playing/music. Pickups in yours seem to be different...

I have to admit I have spoken ill of Beckham especially during the world cup. I hadnt realised that Beckham could effect world guitar prices. I certainly wont mention insulting Beckham in the future. Dont get me started on Capello though. Maybe he meant with his super seasoned neck he could bend it...
