Re: Announcement Sept 2015

Hi Gordon Very brave of you to share this news and a great example of taking a positive attitude to facing it head on and not hiding it away from the world. Inspiration for us all should we find ourselves in a similar situation. Please take strength from the good wishes of all of us who love you and...

Re: Telecasters

Hi Gordon, I have always fancied trying a Tele but, whilst I have seen them put to good use by a small number of big stars for rock and blues, they seem to be the go-to choice for American Country & Western music. I was wondering what it was about this particular type of guitar that attracts pla...

Re: Rob Armstrong Baritone Guitar

Hi both, I also love that baritone guitar. I recall seeing the distance between the lower frets and thinking I would never be able to get my fingers far enough apart to form a meaningful chord that low down. Subsequently (quite a few years ago), I attended one of Gordon's workshops before a show he ...

Gordon name-checked by Roger Bucknall for NAMM

Interesting snippet of an interview with Roger Bucknall here where he name checks Gordon when answering the question what was the thing he most enjoyed working on. Answer? A guitar for Gordon! Check out this link:

Fylde GG Signature Prototype

Whilst I do not think it appropriate to use this forum to advertise items for sale I thought on this one occasion I might be forgiven for letting the GG community know of something that might have specific interest to the readers: the prototype of his Fylde GG model, which is for sale (from me!) You...

What a terrible event. All our thoughts and best wishes to Rob and Sheila for his recovery from the physical burns, the emotional impact of losing his tools and the impact on his business and livelihood. If nothing else could hasten his recovery then surely the enormous appreciation of his instrumen...

Ah, strings - real anorak territory! Gordon tells a good anecdote about bumping into Hank Marvin (as you do) and when Hilary asked him what they talked about he said "er...string guages actually!". Anyway, my contribution here would be to say that there are as many views on string composit...

Strap buttons

Hi Gordon and any others with techie experience, I have a Fylde Alchemist (Gordon you will know which I am referring to - the prototype Fylde Signature) and it has just the one strap button currently, in the end-pin position. To date, when using a strap, I have used a shoe-lace to fix the other end ...

DIY pedal-board

Hi Gordon, I hope you are well. I thought I might try and start a bit of chat about pedal-boards. Having surfed the internet a bit it seems you can pay a lot of money for what essentially need be no more than a plank of wood! Is your pedal-board a home-made jobbie? If so, have you any top tips for a...

Hi Mike,
The in-ear monitors sound interesting. Any chance you could let me know what model you used and how much they cost?
Thanks,

My best buy would have to be a Blackstar HT-5 combo for electric guitar. Brilliant little all-valve amp with clean and overdrive channels that runs at only 5 watts. This means you can run the volume at full to get those luscious 'valve at the limit' tones but still stand in the same room. Having sai...
