Well, seeing as I have returned to the forum I thought I'd introduce my newly expanded family-I went down to the one guitar (the Gordon Smith in the centre, my honey) but recently have raided ebay for some bargains - the roll call is; Gordon Smith GS1.5/40 (only one ever made as far as I know), Squier VM Jaguar bass, Yamaha FG430 MS, Yamaha GL1 guitalele and Generic roundback Tenor ukelele. Now I need to get some meaningful noises out of them......not in the pic is the Korg AX1500 and Ashdown After 8 15W bass Amp. Apart from the GS everything else is an ebay bargain!

I think the guitar you mean is the Gordon Smith - in order to avoid confusion, from left to right is the Yamaha GL1 guitalele, Squier VM Jaguar Bass, Gordon Smith GS1.5/40, Yamaha FG 403 MS acoustic and in front a Clearwater Bowl back Tenor Electro Ukelele.

It has a coil tapped HB at the bridge and a single coil at the neck.

The Yamaha Guitalele is a heap of fun. The Gordon Smith is a gem. Latest addition to the family is a Blackstar HT1 amp - which sounds tremendous with the gs. What a great little amp for home use. Finally got the kind of amp I wanted - valve, small, managable at low volume with a big tone but with options - line out/phones, cab out. Its fantastic - snappy clean and crunch, good and dirty in overdrive. Wish I could do the pair of them justice. Recommended! every should have a GS and a Blackstar :D
