Wishbone Ash - Mark Abrahams - Tokai LS129

Post by Diamond » Sun Jun 09, 2019 1:57 am

I've been spending some time with WA this weekend on their tour here in SA.

Their new guitarist since 2017 is Mark Abraham's...he is incredible!

I took some cellphone video of the last Friday night show, couldn't resist went again last night because it's a masterclass in guitar playing, Andy Powell and Mark, duel guitar harmonies on another level.

I checked out Mark's Tokai...it's a UK model from a few years ago, would be a LS129 today, Violin Finish.
He's changed pickups, a boutique set made by a German guy, I'll get the guy's name later (he told me but I was a little pissed and forgot). :)

Saw Wishbone Ash a couple of years back at The Tiverley Theatre, Wimborne, Dorset UK. Totally agree great guitarists, brought back some memories. 8)

Unfortunately, it's apparent, most guitarists don't know who Wishbone Ash is. :)

But they know who the Allman Brothers and Thin Lizzy are, and of course Iron Maiden, but they don't realize Wishbone Ash preceded those bands with dual harmony lead guitar playing. :)
