Servicing and restringing this old girl.
Nice. Gretsch, I presume?
Yup. It’s a heavily modified 1969 Anniversary.

Wow, envy!
I bet it would sound great played through my 1964 AC30 (by a better guitarist than me, I might add).

It probably would! What do you usually plug into your AC30?

Fender Tele, various Gordon Smiths and, when I want to pretend to be Nigel Tufnel, Musicman Axis SS.

Love Telecasters. I traded one of my Gretsches (an Electraumatic) for a Tele with a B-bender in it recently. It looks like a '52 with a few modern appointments...And the B-bender of course. It's a bit on the heavy side though due to the swamp ash body.

The last few days, I have been avidly watching this guy’s tracking app as he smashed the record for a complete round of all 214 Lake District “Wainwright” fells. 318 miles and the equivalent of four Everests in 6 days 6 hours. A fantastic achievement.

My own personal best for all the Wainwrights is a bit over 23 years.....

To follow the thread...

Not been up to much apart from work, including a Saturday in the office typing procedures and various risk assessments (its a shame to spend a Saturday doing that when I can think of so many other things that should be possible to do) and studying various videos for automotive sport and incident management - warning flags and emergencies....Oh and a ride out on one of my motorbikes, which, as always is very nice!

I hope other forum members have had a good few days!
Enthusiastic!
Motorbikes, Big Blue "Boats" and Craft Ales (but not all at the same time)
