Thread Name: 60/70s guitars
Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
I can't remember what my first 'proper' i.e. Jumbo guitar was but it was traded for a YamahaFG110, which I am still using. Somebody once reckoned that I'd found a good one! All this despite it being trodden on at a Barnsley Festival by a Silly Wizard. We'd played for a ceilidh in the evening where Silly Wizard sat in with us- talk about wall-to-wall band across the stage! Since we doing a workshop in the same venue next day, we left our instruments on the stage. The caretaker had switched off all the main lighting when one of the wizards realised he'd left his fags on stage and so, relying on the 'emergency exit'lighting he stumbled around until he found them. In the course of this stumbling around he trod on the neck of my guitar (my fault for not having a hard case at the time). Somebody in Kiveton Park glued it back together and, forty years or so down the line, I'm still using it.
