Re: Where to find a VE2000GG-12?

Thank you for the advice Gordon, very tempted by the Paul Brett due to the size.

Decisions, decisions :)

Where to find a VE2000GG-12?

I'm on the hunt for a 12 string and as much as I'd love something like a Taylor 555ce, I can't justify the ££ and the shape will be a bit big for me. So got to thinking of the GG 12 string, the size will be good for me as is similar size wise to my beloved Yairi Gordon Giltrap Signature but I want t...

Re: Trevor Jones

A great heads up Gordon. My family home is at the other end of Church Street where Trevor is located, it will be nice to have a guitar tech on the doorstep so to speak.

I am also a big fan of the other Trevor, the Buck variety we've been friends for more years than I care to remember :)

TOMMY EMMANUEL

Managed to catch this great guitarist at Birmingham Town Hall last week and would recommend to anyone who has the chance, go and see is show he's a fabulous player.

He even mentioned Gordon as one of his Guitar Gods, along with Albert Lee, Merle Travis and Chet Atkins

There is one of these for sale on ebay. Didn't think I'd ever see another one. No its not mine incase you were wondering, my Yairi GG is a guitar I would never sell its very special. They are exceptionally well crafted guitars with beautiful woods (the back on mine has a very subtle burled effect, t...

Gordons New Guitars

Every couple of months Gordon titillates us guitar anoraks with tales of his latest guitar acquisitions.

But what would make it all the better would be some pics - I'd love to know what a Tacoma Thunderhawk actually looks like.

Roots from Fear of The Dark - as a stroppy teenager I heard my Dad playing it on his hi-fi and thought that's interesting! Didn't let the old man know as I was obliged to say his taste in music was lame :lol: Me being into Wham and Duran Duran at the time! But I secretly taped this album (yes tape -...

Well it looks like all is well in my guitar room, put in a pot plant in there and the meter is reading between 53- 56% humidity.

Hi Roger

Thanks for the excellent advice. I have ordered a hygrometer and will let you know how I get on.

Hadn't thought of the pot plant solution!

Cheers

Humidifiers - Who Uses Them

I'm a bit concerned that the central heating is drying out my guitars, especially my acoustics. Now I know I should keep them in the case and put in individual humidifiers but its not that practical. I'd never play them if they were all in cases, so I have all 10 out on stands in my music room. So I...

Shameless Plug For Trevor @PMT

As Gordon has mentioned Trevor in this months newsletter, I thought it wouldn't be frowned on too much to give Trev@ PMT a bit of a plug. I've known Trev for about 8 years now and he has worked on all of my current crop of guitars, both acoustic and electric. He's a fantastic guitar tech who works o...

Mine has to be a 1998 K.Yairi Gordon Giltrap signature model.

Its sublime and got me back to loving the acoustic, it definitely keeps me away from those electric things!

A close second is my Matamp Minimat head & cab - after years of searching I'd found my amp holy grail.
