Eee, you arty bugger! Lovely pic...

She's an ES120 though (same difference, little bit earlier!).

Whenever you hold these conventions I really regret leaving the UK. Love that matching headstock LPB Bacchus Strat, who's is that?

That's John's. And yes, it is nice. :D Soundclips should follow soon once Tom has finished sorting them - we did have a few Strats there to get through.....

:wink:

And I agree - that is a nice pic of Alan's ES.

Whenever there's not a convention I regret coming back to the UK!! At least you're better of 729 days out of 730 :wink:

Yep, the Bacchus is mine, it's a pretty one :D

That's great news Gabe. :D Must have been the superior instruments as it couldn't possibly have been the sartorial flair :lol:

Now that is the best news I've heard today - better than my eBay refund. :D

The only reason that Leeds has worked so well (twice) is because of Tom getting us the room for free for 6 hours on a Saturday afternoon. I know we're all very grateful to Tom.

Getting a suitable room for free in London is even harder, & this could be just what we need. Well done Gabe - you're a star.

A Gold Star, in fact. :D

Humbucker lesters and Andre's amazing Guild are on youtube now. Strats will be up by Sunday, saving the best 'til last :wink:

After seeing the pics, my wife said, "You all look a lot thinner than last time!" :D
