Apparently, I have been quiet about guitars recently, so I will put that right today!
I have been generally busy recenly, so my guitar playing has been in 10-15 minute bursts.
I have recently dug out The Baby again. This was built specially for me when I was 18.
The pic is of me in my band days - I was probably 20 when this was taken? It is a great guitar, very over-powered and ideal for the sort of stuff we played. At the time I had intended to get a V-bass to go with it, but that didn't happen until a couple of years ago when I picked one of these up really cheap.
I immediately decided that it needed more pickups, so removed the original 2 and gave it 4 new ones. This involved chopping more holes in the body of the guitar...
I almost finished the project, just never made a permanant panes for the switches and nobs. But I am going to do that now! I picked up some plastic mirror sheeting that will be perfect. Watch out for a demo of the final product some time soon!
As the weather warms up, I tend to spend a lot of my lunch breaks in one of the gardens of the Cathedral. I take one of my electric guitars with me (my blue mid-life crisis guitar) and listen to it through headphones. This has 2 advantages - I don't disturb anyone while the volume to me can be ear-melting and I don't get mistaken for a busker. Today is looking promising, so I might go there today...
Hope this makes up for my silence about guitars!
