|These are my two guitars, both fairly traditional.
The first is my 1985 Squier Telecaster (made in Korea). Originally came with maple neck and fingerboard. Fancied a change and, given the price of a refret, had it changed 6 years ago. Still have the original neck but the rosewood is an improvement over the maple. The writing on the bottom left as viewed is Buddy Guy's autograph, dated 1991. He signed it in 1991 in Glasgow, Scotland before the evening concert on his "Damn right I've got the Blues" tour. I think the pickups are dying.
The other guitar is an Epiphone Emperor II Joe Pass model. A great introductory archtop which has proven to be a great guitar period. Not a Gibson/Benedetto by any means, but then I'm not Wes/Jim Hall/Pat Metheny either!!
