It's been about 2 weeks, but I haven't posted here.

Started last December with a Epiphone Les Paul 100.  I wasn't happy. 

About 2 months ago I found a Yamaha FG710S on Craigslist.

So that got me playing again.

Good on ya Greg  8)

Let's hear if Justin has a reason to hate his solo album :D!

Note to Self: My guitar playing sounds bad because of a dodgy cable.  ;D

Bitten by the bug to learn guitar I did a bit of research over on ye old tinternet and settled on this baby. Naming our guitars is a thing right?  :D


Oh no they are multiplying! :o


Picked up this cheeky little Yamaha F310 secondhand for £50 which seems to be the going rate. Apart from a small nick at the bottom looks as good as new but sounds just as bad as my first guitar. ;)

I wanted a cheap guitar to keep in the kitchen to practice on when moments present themselves. It's helping me get quicker with my 1 minute changes though Dm is still destroying me on stage 2...

Still enjoying the journey though! ;D

I paid about the same for mine in the brown burst colour a couple of years ago. It was in great condition until I added my own nick, where I banged it on the back of a chair ::)

I received my Purple Panda mic kit from Amazon today. It should make my recordings that much easier and better now. This is compatible with my Samsung android. A test run shows that it works. Looking forward to trying it out for real soon.

I wrote about this one in my Roadcase but I guess a post in this thread is in order.


It's a Tokai Reborn Old from 2010 which I bought pre-loved and it is in close to mint condition.
Not sure if I should remove the pick guard. We'll see.

Nice one! Happy NGD - how many are up to now? Soon you'll be beating me, which makes me feel much better about my own GAS :)

I would remove the pick guard for sure, but that's probably because I'm such a fanboi of both Gary Moore and Slash ;)

I'm actually down sizing and I just sold my Strat a couple of weeks ago. My Gibson lpj is up for sale atm.
My goal is to end up with my acoustic, Tele and the Tokai LP. That's not a lot of guitars... my wife has more shoes still!

I'm thinking the pick guard has to go eventually. I always thought they looked a bit silly on a Les Paul.

LoL not sure the wife would buy "but you have more shoes" were GAS to attack and I acquired a 5th guitar. In my case "but you have more wood-working tools" maybe .... nah, a 5th guitar would still be a tough sell

Congrats Jesper and 8Lives, those two look real sweet.

As for up/down sizing, counting the days 'til Xmas, when no 7 gets unwrapped (I don't count the LIDL "special" I picked when first arriving in France or the cheapo Rock Academy which replaced it, those are in the loft but should be down the tip).

Enjoy your new toys.  8)
