Re: my ve2000gg signature guitar review

Hi chrisandvon The strings that were on my V2000GG when it arrived were D'addario.The colour coded ball ends are a giveaway for that make.I changed them straightaway too because they are obviously on a long time from the factory until you actually get the guitar and they were a bit tired. I've fitte...

visit to gordon

I'd like to use this forum to mention a visit that i made recently to Gordon for a one on one lesson.Lesson perhaps isn't the right word becuase it was more of an experience.For what i believe is a modest fee Gordon will set aside a day(he doesn't take a gig for the evening)and will discuss techniqu...

hi ben they sound very different don't they.the fishman is a much warmer sound than the headway but they both sound great.i see what you mean about the headway perhaps being a little harsh when strumming but would maybe cut through better live,a tough call but you play so well that anybody listening...

I'm using the Martin FX flexible core strings at the moment,they are the same tension as normal gauge strings but do feel easier on the fingers.The sound is superb, really vibrant and rich.Iv'e not had much look getting Newtones in the past either the dealer didn't have any left(not a bad thing)or t...

new strings

Hi Roger There are many brands of quality strings these days.Most players i think probably use phosphor bronze.These are not quite as bright as normal bronze wound ones and keep their tone a bit longer.Martin and D'addario are both really good and theres also the British makes such as Rotosound and ...

shining morn cd

This album is a triumph from start through to finish.I hope Gordon is proud of this work because it captures so many emotions right the way through.Great stuff!plus a bonus for guitar nerds like me with details of all the equipment used!As previously stated well worth the wait.

budget electrics/electro-acoustics

Hi Roger I think that Yamaha are a good overall brand.The APX electro acoustic is excellent value for money and the Pacifica electric guitar also.Yamaha guitars always come well set up and playable.I know Gordon has used various Yamaha's over the years too which is no bad endorsement! Best Regards S...
