  1. New Foxton Interview here . Host site also has other, older Foxton IVs.
  2. I'd go for the original, meaning the Paul Bigsby headstock that Leo nicked when they were still mates. A bit more swirly and exaggerated and when people say 'That's not a Fender headstock' you can say: 'Well, actually...' then bore them shirtless for half an hour and when they black out from the tedium you can nick their wallets and spend the money on hookers and crystal meth.
  3. I don't think our Bridgey was having a pop at you. You've been helpful. Anyway, you and him could meet up on a North Sea Ferry and do the deal. He'd probably like a nice ocean cruise.
  4. Couple of things about Rory Gallagher and his Strat: * His sweat may have been much more acidic than normal due to liver / kidney damage caused by a combination of alcohol consumption and - possibly - haemochromatosis (strangely prevalent in Irish men). Strange to think that the reproductions of his guitar may actually reproduce the secondary effects of the disease that killed him. Excessively acidic sweat can be an indicator of various medical conditions and should be referred to a medical professional. * A few years ago one of the guitar mags took a basic Strat and Rory'd it by stripping it to bare wood, masking off the areas of wear with a template and spraying a sunburst over the top. Outcome: pretty much a CS Rory Gallagher - as one of the earlier contributors to this thread has surmised
  5. Hi WingedWords and welcome to the forum
  6. Fine by me. These days I'm only posting stuff that's useful in a practical sense, like how* to get minor orange peel defects out of a poly re-spray. * Use a sanding block and progressively finer grades of wet and dry paper up to 12000 then finish with Meguiars ScratchX-20 on a rotary buffing attachment.
  7. @MattyBoy Ta for the update and if you see him around tell him thanks for the good times
  8. Bought an Ampeg B15-T from the Slough branch in the 90's. IIRC, the parking was awful which can't have helped in the long run.
  9. Probably a bit late in the day but Stewmac sell truss rod rescue kits designed to remedy this eventuality. Mind you, they're pricey, starting at about $200 exc shipping.
