Wow very impressive, it's nice to have so many guitars, each and every one carries a story to tell of a precious memory from your past. I am guessing every time you look at one it's like turning a light switch into one of the rooms of your mind where you can sit and reminisce :)

Hey Joe where you going with oops sorry  ;)
Great to see you here, as not seen you post much. Yeah about time you gave us the full story on what you've been up to, should make a great read. As for me, as you can see since we started here what 6/7 years back, I suffered badly with the GAS but luckily have an understanding wife (with her own vices I might add). Hope you and yours are all safe and well take care mate.

Cheers

Toby

Adi cheers. Yeah each has its place. Some get neglected more than others but I do try and rotate now and then to let them stretch their legs. Vary rarely play the acoustics but that said just spent a pleasant hour working with the T-Bucket 8)

Very nice collection Joe! I actually feel proud that after all these years I've still only got two acoustics and two electrics (one only bought this year) although I am GASing for a PRS SE Custom at the moment  ;D

I've probably spent significantly more on AMPS and various pedals/multifx/mixers etc. than on guitars.

Do you think all those DIY years before Justin was part of your development or did you had to unlearn a lot?

In a way. Not so much having to unlearn it was all the crucial bits that were either missing or glossed over in preference to teaching sheet music and by that I do actually mean paper, not circumventing the mods.

What it taught me and what I bang on about here time and time again, is there are no shortcuts, there are no quick wins. And if you do not learn the fundamentals of timing and strumming and feel you will amount to jack. As I said in the other post, those books bounced all over the gaff but never really explained the importance rhythm. Even when I restarted in 2011 before finding this site I bought Guitar for Dummies and Blues For Dummies, much better than past material but still all other the place. Like trying to put the roof on while the cement in the footings is still wet. There is no point trying to learn even a simple melody line if you have no clue about timing and rhythm. Its like handing someone a news bulletin and they read it out flat monotone, its meaning is lost without feel and expression or timbre. And that is what Justin provides, the strongest deepest foundation you will find anywhere. I know some folks learnt from books etc but it did not work for me that's all. Boy if he was around in 96 is all I can say. Simples.  8)

Well as promised the much needed update to this Roadcase.

So some of you may recall back in January, after a wonderful 2 years together, my beloved Wine Red LP Studio aka Cherry had what I thought to be a fatal accident and with all the restrictions and limitations arising from the Covid pandemic, was pretty much consigned to history.

As the Red Queen said "Off with their heads"



On that day the world fell out of my bottom, or so it felt. But every cloud has at least one silver lining.

As it was my 65th this year, my good lady had been constantly asking what I wanted, for what was once a milestone UK birthday (but my state pension now starts next year). So browsing on the Thomann website and loitering on the image of a complete Cherry in all her splendour, such was the disappointment  ;) when a few clicks later revealed a gorgeous Smokehouse Burst Studio LP and my heart melted. It did not take much persuading from my wife, for me to agree it would make a fine birthday present. So although the brown box arrived long before the big day, I waited patiently until the 30th of March before fully welcoming Smokey into my life.




Now in the midst of all the chaos and joy Stitch had said Cherry could be repaired if I found a good luthier. I'd had a look around and made some enquiries but my shop in Rennes was in the middle of a covid hotspot zone and Thomann's repair centre seemed to have gone awol since mid January.

So the day after my birthday, with lockdown 3 quickly approaching I decided to look again for a local luthier and blow me down found a Geordie 7 minutes up the road !! https://www.srb-guitars.com/
Having gone round to SRB on April 1st (!!) the day before lockdown kicked off again, the fix was discussed, prices and timescales confirmed and Cherry was left with Doctor Steve.

Today she came home and I am blown way by the job he has done and I am sure if you had not known what had happened, you would be none the wiser, despite some very very minor hairline markers, that were to be expected due to the vagaries of nitro and the nature of the break. So here she is



The damaged headstock veneer is as good as new, it was sheared off right on the top truss rod cover screw

   

The paint work has been blended in and could be the original finish





With the headstock repaired and a new set up done, she now plays like butter and the action is silky smooth.

I am really impressed with the overall work and the set up on Cherry, so will return soon. A set up on its own actually works out cheaper, when I add the fuel and parking costs for visiting Rennes. Plus to be honest Steve's work and care seems to be a few hundred percent better, so at 50 euros a pop, I will slowly introduce him the other six electrics, cos I am pretty ok with the two acoustics. He also runs a couple of guitar maintenance courses each year (he's been building for 40 years and a tech in various UK and French shops), so I might check that out as well, when the corona dust settles, as the man is a mind of information and genuinely good geezer !!

So all is well with the world once more.  :)

So after a nightmare start to my guitar year and the apparent existence of a second silver lining, I can now present my new
Gibson Double Album  ..................



because of course with a double album you always got 2 LPs !!

And now one family photo for the album, before I manage to break anything else.



So that's it folks apart from this years Open Mic performance and the continued saga of the Madman's Diaries

Now what was I saying about Schecters ....................oh and some one mentioned pedal boards..............

Cheers

Toby

Well that is a happy ending to the nightmare of a story!

Steve's work is insanely good. I am no expert in guitar maintenance but from the photos you posted, his skills are just amazing.

Loved the group photos and the family gathered together as well!

Looking forward to another chapter from the Madman's Diaries!

Thank you Luka, yes all is good and I am hoping to keep the family in better health this year.
I have another slot in the Diary and a song I started at the beginning of the year for the next chapter but the OMs and Livestream seem to have taken over. But watch this space as I really want to get that boxed off and out of the way and move onto something new.

Cheers

What superb work Toby. I'm so glad the Cherry chapter has had such a happy ending. Not only that you have the new addition of Smoky, you've found a local luthier/artists/craftsman and he's offering workshops in the future.

Who woulda thunk all those months ago when poor Cherry lay beheaded on the tiles that there would be such a happy outcome.

Glad for you Toby  :)
