I have only been playing for eight months, but I decided to upgrade from my $99 Gibson Maestro. This is a Norman B18, made in Quebec.





I really like it, it blows my other guitar away.

DS.....I like that shirt.

Bokonon, Norman guitars are really kept under the radar. I've played two and loved them both. That one is beautiful.

Won't that hurt the finish? :P

Nice gear everyone.

By the way I think everyone needs one of these t-shirts :)


Got one! My daughter bought it for me as a gift a few years ago. It's a little faded now but I still wear it frequently. :mrgreen:

You understand wearing that tee ups the threshold to five beers, right?

Hi friends,

Two new additions to the herd:

Mike Robinson @ Eastwood said it was a copy of the late 60's Teisco "May Queen". He said he hadn't made them for 4 yrs or longer hence the old logo on the headstock. It is really light and the mini-HBs sound great. Even the cheesy trem is great and it stays in tune. It looks a little dirty in the pics and yeah, it needs a good polish but there is not a scratch or flaw on it. Cool! It's a little hard to play sitting down, though, without a place for your knee.

Next up:


Sorry I had to give this one three pics to show the awesomeness of this guitar. I have no idea what it's a copy of and even Mike @ Eastwood (or My Rare Guitars) was a little perplexed when I tried to describe it. It was advertised as a 335 copy but the body shape is definitely different. The guitar is absolutely gorgeous in person, the pics do not do it justice. The Burns trem on it is better than any Bigsby I've owned. The pups sound a lot like the DeArmond Gold Tone (is that right?) that ended up in some of the Guild Starfires. Quiet as hell and jazzy when you want it, loud as f*** when you want that. Both of these guitars are totally flawless and excellent sounding and playing guitars. Both have set necks and neither required adjustments to my taste. The necks are both slim taper which I love and the frets are dressed well. It doesn't hurt that the Blonde has a bound neck (although the body is only fake bound :D

The May Queen by contrast is a little nasal sounding like an early 70's SG Special but I like that sort of thing. It does tend to feedback pretty quickly (the body is almost entirely hollow, it does not appear to be chambered and weighs maybe 6 pounds if that). It sounds good with some tube amp overdrive to send it over into Funk #49 territory (and to you youngsters that don't know what that's in reference to: GET OFF MY LAWN! :D ).

Man I got these guitars CHEAP, and they are my two favorite at the moment out of about 20 or more electrics, but I suppose that's bound to wear out when I want my Reverend and LP back in the loop. I'd highly recommend you guys/gals check out some of these Eastwood guitars. I have 2 (well, 4 now) and I've been really happy with all of them and Mike R is just a cool guy and emails back in minutes.

If anyone has any info on the blonde semi-hollow, pleases comment or PM me. I'm interested in exactly what this is a copy of...

Peace,
Jick

Wait, whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

Iffy quality i know but taken very quickly.

Ibanez never gets played and just realised it has a Behringer sticker on it :S
and its an Epi Dove not an Epi Hummingbird :P

Apart from that, its all good :D

** they photos seem to have been chopped in half :S no idea why**I have the same problem.

I'm only guessing, but perhaps your camera(s) are on a low resolution setting?

Whatever site you're using to host, check the properties of the pics - it may be that they're too large to "print" for want of a better word. You can always use a program like irfan viewer (haven't got a link handy, you'll have to google it) to re-size your pics.

Oh yeah, nice collection you're building there, soxzs!

:D :D :D

Two new additions to the herd

Those are a couple of beauts, Mr J...... I followed a link you posted a while back, think it was Eastwood's Rare Guitars or something - I was sat gawping for about an hour! Sheer goggle-eyed wonder, mouth agape and drooling - better not post that link again, it took me a week to get over the GAS pains!!!

:D :D :D

Are you kidding Vic? You know what camera I'm taking photo's with? It's the Canon 400D aka Rebel XTI.
and the res is around 3000 +.

I said I was only guessing.... :oops: .....maybe it's too HIGH resolution, then? I dunno - anything more than "point and click" and I'm into advanced territory. I do know, the one time I tried to re-size a photo (for my avatar) I had to download irfan viewer, work out what to do with it, and experiment a few times till I got it right. That's eight hours of my life I'll never get back.....

I'd like to make a new avatar, but I'll be buggered if I'm going through all that again!!!!

:D :D :D
