A possible GG guitar?

Postby Jordz » Tue Dec 15, 2015 4:19 am

Hi, I bought this guitar a while back and have been told that it may be one of Gordon's guitars, I've spoken to guitar cavern in Worcester and they do remember the guitar but can not verify its authenticity, I've searched high and low for information about the brand and even with a serial number have always drawn a blank, there is little information about the brand even on enthusiasts forums. The guitar is a Fenix by Young Chang, gunmetal grey, bare knuckle pickups, unfortunately I am not a musician and struggle with terminology but I am very interested in its history, please could you advise me?

I cant seem to add pictures, will i need to use a third party website and link them, is this allowed?

If you are having problems, that's the best thing to do - for some advice see the Board help section. Photobucket or similar that assign a unique URL to each picture is fine.

Hi Buddy.

Yes, it was definitely part of my collection.

I bought it from a shop in Chippenham that was closing down.It's a cracking guitar and the previous owner must have loved it to upgrade the pickups with the current one.

Fenix guitars are SO underrated.

Enjoy it buddy it's a cracker,that's why I bought it!

Be well.

Nice guitar. Congrats. And now you know it was part of Gordon's collection.
Bare Knuckle pickups are great. I've got the Irish Tour set on my Strat.
I've never come across that make before, but if Gordon plays them . . .
Enjoy

Steve
