Covers collaboration

Surely any music shop worth it's salt will sell tuners? Ebay have them cheap if not :)....or use your PC!!

Just picked up the new work horse......

Just picked up my new beast for a very reasonable price. Gordon Smith GS2.60 These are hand made in the UK - no frills but amazing playability!! 2 X hand wound humbuckers that can be coil tapped - the tone controls actually do something!! :) Plays like butter btw 8) http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/...

I recently got the old Washburn F8 acoustic out again - hadn't had new strings for 3 years - they sounded so dull.....instant transformation when they were changed!

BTW that parrots squawk would do my head in lol
