  1. FWIW I love my T62. It’s no Strat in a conventional sense but “does Strat” reasonably well. Where the T62 excels is in its build quality and materials which are other worldly. The Birdseye neck for example. The preamp too also makes it a versatile tool. It provides a big difference in gain and EQ and for me becomes the solo switch. Whoever bought it will have fun.
  2. I really enjoyed watching that video. Thanks for sharing. Gilbert is among the very best ever and his ever charming personality always makes me smile. Watching him play basketball was classic. ?
  3. Very sad news. A good friend of mine, a fellow guitarist, died The same way at 38. Watching him go was heartbreaking. The candle that burns twice as bright... RIP Neil Peart and thank you for the music.
  4. Matey, sometimes it’s easy to forget about actually playing when engrossed in a guitar arms race. You CAN play. You know that. I know that. Practice is overlooked and very satisfying when it all comes together isn’t it? Personally I could do with a good theory instructional video as my theoretical knowledge is less than optimal.
  5. Thanks for posting. This stuff interests me. I'll take a look later...
  6. Oh my goodness. I’d probably faint walking around your guitar collection. Outstanding!
  7. I like it! I’ve listened to it a few times and it’s buzzing round my head now. ?
  8. A very valid point. Until you play something loud, standing up, in front of an audience, it’s just not the same. The best guitarists out there make the hard stuff sound easy and that’s the beauty of their art.
  9. ^^ Some serious flexibility there. Impressive!
  10. Art yes! Exactly my reason for owning an O’Connor Cali Double neck! ?
  11. I have that same noble aim but I just can’t get there. Yet. I think half a dozen is just about perfect in terms of flexibility for tones/fixed bridges/trems. Problem is I look at the likely “go” candidates, pick one up, and...
  12. I have cousins in Oz that have been advised to vacate their property which they’ve spent ten years building. He’s a Vet too so animals dying, let alone people, will affect him big time. £50 donation made by me through WWF UK. My music theory knowledge is in need of improvement so any highly recommended video would be useful.
  13. Wow an O’Connor Red Dragonskin with a reverse headstock! Marvellous! My congratulations for the acquisition and what a great start to the year you’ve made!
  14. It’s a lovely guitar and I can attest that it plays AND sounds as good as it looks. This guitar will make someone VERY happy. GLWTS Gene.
  15. After I landed home with my Shishkov Super-C within a few weeks I’d ordered another. This one was to be deliberately different in subtle ways so as to avoid being a clone of the first. Having played BTMN’s Korina Hamer’s and loving them I decided on a Figured Kotina body and Quilt Maple top accompanied by a Wenge neck (once you’ve had one...) and a different choice of pickups. The biggest visual difference being a bound body/neck (this time White/Black/White) and a figured ebony board/headstock face. 24.75 scale length as opposed to the firsts 25.5 with Satin Chrome Schaller hardware.
  16. When I was a young teenager I watched Gary Moore play at a guitar show in London. I went up to him afterwards to say how awesome I thought he was, or words to that affect, and all I got was “Fuck off!” I was crushed. On the opposite side of the spectrum I met Paul Gilbert, again after a guitar show clinic, and he treated me like a long lost friend. Legend.
  17. The Willy G is one of the meanest guitars I’ve ever played. Huge tone.
  18. When Mike announced Shishkov guitars I was one of the first to commit to an order. An Ultimate didn’t appeal to me so I enquired as to whether he’d consider building me a Super Strat? Affirmative. Next I was told that I’d have to wait until the Ultimate orders were almost done before expecting my own order but we could sound off on ideas and wood selection in between. It was over 2.5 years from enquiry to pickup but was worth every days wait. Originally I wanted an 80’s Hameresq headstock, a humbucker/single coil and a Schaller Lockmeister Floyd in vintage copper hue with an FM bod
  19. That Sir is a stunner. Merry Christmas to you!! If it plays as good as it looks...
