When I’m not biking, or boozing, I like nothing better than playin’ me geetah! Been playing a long time now. In fact, I first started playing after a motorbike crash put me out of action! What a suprise. 😉
Anyway, before I moved to France I stoopidly sold most of my small collection of guitars. The only electric I have left is the one that nobody wanted, a Fender Big Apple Stratocaster. Here she is…
A beauty eh? In the right hands such a guitar could make a grown man weep, and make a young woman go weak at the knees.
So, with a gig coming up i’m getting some practice in, wringing every last emotion out of her when my B string snapped. It’s nearly always the B that goes first. Ever tried buying guitar strings in rural France? Not easy, especially when I’m fussy about what I play. So instead of treking into Limoges and supporting the local guitar shop, which I know I should do, I went online at Strings Direct and ordered some of my all time favourites – Fender Super Bullets. Thanks to Rick at Strings Direct for the rapid service – they arrived within 48hrs.
While I was on, I ordered some new Fast Fret. It’s a String and neck lubricant. That…
lets fingers slide freely, keeps strings clean and is good for wood. Glides on wipes off, specially formulated for stringed instruments.Fast fret cleans strings, lets you play faster, brightens sound, prolongs fingerboard life, long lasting, won’t damage your frets…
Last time I bought Fast Fret it came in a tin! If you’re into guitars you’ll know how long ago that was. 😉
We always used to rub the inside of a crisp packet down the strings. 🙂
Do yer still play?
That’s an amazing guitar. Would you be willing to sell it? 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Not thinking of selling any time soon!
Keep on Rocking in the Free World Empra!
