Okay so I accquired a new one.

As you'll know from the last few posts this month has been a royal PITA, however on Saturday something happen that made my year. I was sat at home on Saturday feeling quite lost in myself when the doorbell goes. It's a friend o mine and his partner, they'd popped over to cheer me up and make sure I was doing okay. I invite them in and see that Ben has a guitar case with him (nothing unusual there) but his girlfriend has a little combo amp (Strange as I have 30 amps in the house) and a Chinese takeway for us all.

We sit down and are chatting while eating the takeaway when I ask him what's in the case and under the amp cover. He then procedes to explain that they are gifts from my wife that she had ordered before she started her last round of chemo, she had ben order them and store them till after the chemo was supposed to finish - they were her little joke for me going to all her hospital visits with her ( I have a extreme phobia of hospitals - having spent a lot of my childhood in them).

So whats the guitar you ask? I love the PRS SE Zach Myers But was always put off by the colour "Tramps arse green" and through the current blue is nice, the indonesian made models aren't a patch on the earlier Korean models. In 2015 PRS released a Limited edition variant in sunburst (Can't remember if it was UK or Europeon Only) That was the one I wanted. I'd also fallen in love with the Marshall Origin 5 combo but of course both were discontinnued. She'd had all my friend she could think off on the look out for either one of these items when both were found cheap enough that they were in the budget she was looking at she decided what the hell get both.

Ladies and Gentlemen may I present =

These probably mean more to me than any other guitar I own - with the exception of the PRS Core McCarty which she bought after the first course of treatment.

Wow.. that was really touching... I'm sure these are not only nice instruments, but they're definitely special instruments.

It took me a few to figure out what you meant by PITA as I'm not familiar with all those text and iNet acronyms. 😉 But thanks. From NOW ON I won't be able to buy Pita Bread without laughing! :rofl:

Never heard it before. Always just spoke it out. 😉 However....

All that newfangled acronym stuff has gotten out of control. I can understand that a lot of it came about back when texting charged by the character. Now with unlimited text on most cell services there's no longer a need for it. But it continues. And the sad part is there's an entire generation that can't even TALK without using it. I have several nieces and nephews, all in their early to mid 20's and younger who'll actually SAY "OMG", "BFF", "WTF" " "LOL" and such. :rolleyes: Some even got in trouble in school for using them in written essay assignments.

How is that any different than when we were growing up?

I certainly don't remember speaking the Queen's English in Received Pronunciation as a youngster whilst avoiding common slang terms. We had a regional dialect and used terms common to our culture at the time. Some downright hyperlocal.

As for the TXTSPK, a lot of these "kids" grew up with the old Nokia "dumbphones" and while I certainly find it irksome in a setting such as this - where one can take their time composing a diatribe of epic grandeur, texting is usually far more rapid fire. Quick bursts to convey a message that can be understood at a glance - not lengthy explanations of the concept.

Even though I'm fully aware of this phenomenon, I still type out long form messages because I don't want to be this guy.

Difference was, as you pointed out, was that you used WORDS. So did we in my age group. And slang too, which also were words. Some still used today, others long faded into obscurity("groovy" , "boss", "tits", "baaaaaad"[ meaning "good" and a positive response], "far out", "right on", etc.) All of which of course, we didn't insert into our schoolwork. 😉.

And while initially, things like "LOL", and "ROFLMAO" were cute, I long ago gave 'em up as adolescent and contrived and took to preferring emoticons (I don't use "emoji" as even though I know it comes from the Japanese, it still sounds like "baby talk" to me. as does "my bad".) This all might appear quite anal to some, but I'd prefer to stay true to myself rather than try to appear as someone I'm not. 😉 And you gotta admit. Some of the slang of the last 30 or so years did sound kinda silly. ("Da bomb", Da shits", "Phat" ). :rolleyes:

Tell me you're feeling the generation gap without telling me directly.
Difference was, as you pointed out, was that you used WORDS.
Because we didn't grow up under the same circumstances, or with the same tech (or in the wake thereof). The elders in my day didn't necessarily consider what we were saying to be words either.

Acronyms have been around a long time - to shorten a word salad into a quickly identifiable concept or message understood by the other "in the know" party. The military is packed to the gills with them - most of which can seem like gibberish to an outsider.

As for the rest may I suggest: The Urban Dictionary ?

Two more gone =

Dean Explorer
Dean Flying V

Both of these were gifted to a friend who's been there for me throughout the the 5 years

Current total = 77 or 76 read following & decide for yourself

I did however finally finish the mods on a PRS SE Santana that Maria had borrowed / stolen from me:hmm:. She loved the guitar and I had decided to finish it as a gift to get her through the latest bout of chemo, unfortunately it was not to be (The inlays arrived too late). It's finished now and will sit in a glass case (once the case is delivered) with her picture beside it.

Ladies & Gentlemen I give you the

PRS SE Maria Goodwin signature model
51940783055_16dc4d0dcc_o.jpg


Mods Include =
Ebony tuner buttons
Hybrid Wilkinson tuners
Vinyl headstock overlay with black eagle (May change eagle to gold PRS Signature)
Custom Ebony & MOP TRC with doves
Custom fretboard inlay from "Neck Illsions"
PRS dragon II pickups with gold poles
Hybrid brass tremolo
PRS custom 22 wiring with 5 way rotary pickup selector
Gotoh Strap buttons


I guess this means I've lost another guitar :facepalm:

How come your SEs (including your singlecuts) all look like they're proper carved tops, but the ones I see in stores (apart from the hollowbody ones) look like some beveled thing trying to be an archtop? Did they change that in recent years?

No it's just a happy trick of the light, all my pictures are light by natural sunlight from a south facing double glazed window - this can cause the guitars to seem more bevelled then they are.

Okay so theres been a new one added which like SE Zach myers will never leave my side.

Just when I thought my life couldn't get any stranger I get a guitar from the most unexpected of sources, Last week I had my son for the weekend, all weekend he just kept smirking and laughing to himself (I tought it was a coping method after Maria's death) On Saturday we went into Manchester for a day out (trawling round guitar shops - what a surprise) We went to one particular shop where a couple of freinds work (when you have had a collection like mine over the years you make friends with guitar stores pretty quickly).

For the last few months they had a guitar that both myself and my son had been drowling over but when we entered the shop I could see straight away the guitar was gone. We stayed for a while and then decided to head home. the rest of the weekend went by as usual, Telly, Xbox & guitar playing.

When it was time for Peter to be picked up by his mum (He has very minor autism but she insists on treating him like he's about 10 - he's 22 this year) they was a knock at the door which is unusual for Nicola as she usually stays in the car, She comes in and we start chatting (we do actually get better now than we did when we were together). After about 15 minutes of this the door goes again and I think it must be Colin, Peters stepdad. Sure enough it's Colin but stood beside him is the owner of the shop we'd been in on Saturday and he's holding a case.

They come in and Peter virtually wets himself he's laughing so hard. The store owner hands me the case and explains that contents are a gift off my son, this mom & stepdad. The store owner had sold it them at cost, Peter had used most of his savings and his mum and Colin put the rest towards it, When we'd been looking or it in his shop it had actually been in the shop we'd just left, having a complete setup. This is why Peter had been acting strange over the weekend - the funny thing is I never thought he could keep a secret:naughty:

So what was in the case you ask?

Gordon Smith GSG-1 Korina
51984202196_c9d15b3ee9_o.jpg


Kluson machineheads
Brass Nut
1 piece Korina neck
Rosewood fingerboard
2 Piece Korina body
Gordon Smith P-90
Aluminium wraparound bridge (Intonation is spot on dispite no saddle ridges)
Ebony Knobs (added by me)

When we were kids me and my brother knew Gordon Whitham quite well, he was a drinking buddy of our stepdad. We even worked at the factory on Saturdays for a while. When I started my band my stepdad custom ordered a a Korina SG as my first pro guitar (Sadly it got stolen from a gig about 18 months after I got it). This one reminds so much of that early one its scary.

This guitar is actually featured on the Gordeon Smith website = https://www.gordonsmithguitars.com/components/p90-pickups

I truly can't believe that my ex helped buy me a new guitar (My collection when we were together was one of our argument topics)

The guitar will be getting played in anger along with my new SE Zach Myers and the SE Maria Goodwin signature model at a benefit gig for cancer reasearch on Saturday night, so I'll let you know how they get on.

That's an amazing looking SG. But more importantly, thank you for sharing your stories and the relationships between you, your guitars, and the people surrounding/behind the guitars. It really adds another dimension to these instruments.

One out and one in.

Gone =
2015 PRS McCarty

Into the family =
2020 Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard

I decidedvto let the McCarty go because even though it was one of the guitars my departed missus bought and for a while my pride and joy I found myself using less and less, especially after I got 2001 McCarty.

The 2015's frets were too high but I didn't want to make any major changes That would affect resale value (she'd always said that it something to fall back on money wise once she was gone, rather than a gift) especially after she got me the (to me anyway) nicer 2001 version.

Fast forward to now and I found a buyer (actually the same gent who's bought a few of mine this year) and since I'd been on the lookout for a 1959 whe one showed up super cheap I jumped at it, it's super playable and to me still technically a guitar off Maria.

The only question now is do I keep my 2014 Gibson Les Paul Traditional? Though I'm still in the honeymoon period with the 1959, In some ways I would actually say it's at least equal to the Gibson.

Current collection = 75

The one thing I can say for certain about Gibby's is that they hold value in a monetary sense. That said, a guy could have two to three really nice Epi's for the coin a Gibson calls for.

As to your question, yeah you're in the honeymoon phase with the Epi, but you should know the Gibson by now. If the LPT doesn't twirl your moustache - list it.

We're not talking about a vintage hand crafted Gibson (in either case) these are CNC made guitars.

Just my 2¢
