Hubba Bubba - Viking Naturally!
Bruce hit the FORUM with a question about spares. After passing on the spares contacts we got into a bit of dialogue, and what comes out of this in the space of a few hours can only be done justice in the following manner...
David... Here's a few shots I took today on the deck....play in a weekend Keltic act www.blueberrygrunt.com and intend to try the Viking out next weekend for a set or two.Hopefully will get some nice glassy tones.....any recommendations on the tone and toggle settings???
Reply: What a gorgeous
variation. I haven't seen quite this combination before. I love the natural
woods - why hide quality eh? The lacquer finish is a secret recipe.
Glad you like it....!! I read the article, thanks!! Very retro... The wood grain is amazing actually...it was bought by my buddy 20 years ago and lived under the bed....it was gross when I first got it a few weeks ago, I was in Germany and didn't return till this week ...I played four nights this week and this was my first day to take it apart and clean it from top to bottom... the finish was so dull, I freaked after applying the polish and saw this baby come alive... I tell you with every swipe of the cloth it kept on smiling at me....haa!! Wish I had my amp here... have to wait till tomorrow.... tanks for all the info... you can post the pics if you like.... the guitar is owned by my buddy Ron.... maybe after I play it he may want to trade it for my cat or something ??!! I'll keep you posted after the gig next week...
Now that's what I call a quick conversion, but we all know why eh? Feast your eyes on the full story in pictures
OK, so everybody check under the bed tonight - without fail
I hear this method of finding
wonderful examples all the time,
here must be loads of stories (and pics) around from the last forty years, why not share them with us!
