Just went to see Joe tonight. Didn't know much about him but a friend from work arranged the tickets so I was interested. I like blues guitar so I figured it would be ok.
He did two sets, one acoustic and the other electric. The acoustic was full of various styles and good fun. The electric set...
I was listening to the Hollies tonight because I'm old and remember when.
Anyway I didn't understand the lyrics so I looked them up and found the 2nd verse:
Listen to me I'll sing a song to change your mind
Your ears are deaf, your mouth is dumb, your eyes are blind

A great lost artist story with a happy ending. The Sugarman is the coolest guy and one wonders how far he might have gone if he had the recognition in the 70s.
Strange that he developed such a cult following in South Africa but apparently unheard in the states in the 70s.
I remember when...
So we are having a heat wave in OZ and genius thinks, I'll buy one of those portable air-con units.
So I get home and I admit, I've had a few beers, turn on air con, fall asleep.
Just woken up. 36C.
Forgot to duct the exhaust outside.
WTF. I didn't mean to do that. Why can't...
I just installed a togpot in my SG Custom.
Seems to work well. I've got standard SG wiring and the ability to dial any amount of middle pickup into the mix.
Green=Bridge pot output
Yellow=Neck pot output
Orange and Black=Output Jack
Brown and White=ground

I, like many people here, have many guitars. 14 at the moment but it'll be back down to 13 soon enough.
I've often asked myself, "How many do I really need?" and as I get older (hopefully) "What will be my last guitar?"
Even when I try to rationalise I still come up with about 6-7...
I thought I had every guitar I could want. So why do I continue to look at eBay?
Anyway, a CS SG came up at a price I couldn't ignore. Outstanding condition, September 2012 build. The only issue was that the owner had changed a few things:
Replaced the standard tuners with Kluson double rings...
