New gear day...
« on: April 30, 2009, 02:33:34 AM »
Coming soon to a postbox near me... another Kramer Baretta.

This one's a brand new reissue, and was paid for when I laid down my Jacksons at the Dallas Show, and saw the sweetness I'd been crying for - a never-played black one to go with my oversprayed white original.


Any other new 6-strings out there, or is it all keys and over-size bongos for you guys lately :roll: ?

Well, it's my birthday in under a fortnight and this Fender Classic Player 60s Strat is just calling out to me from a nearby music store...  ;)

Most recent purchase was a Godin xtSA back in January.  Wonderful thing which is simultaneously a good quality Canadian electric with a piezo acoustic transducer and Roland guitar synth access - 3 in 1.  I like!  :D

Enjoy your Baretta.  8-)
Come on, you\'re a lion!

I took delivery of a Paul Reed Smith SE back in late February. I never did upload pics of it.
 I shall be off to take some then,after cleaning the place up. It's in shambles.

I always hang out of the window. I've yet to be arrested for it, however.


Oh, yes, and I've just bought a clean original red Kramer Elliot Easton off a mate in Miami :D

rubber seals sounds like a strange fetish... are they anything like inflatable sheep?

Well, I'm coming back to England soon, and I figured I'd better be able to defend myself and my property. Hence all the Kramers.

But I'll be in Surrey, not Scally Central, so the worst crims I have to deal with will probably be investment bankers.

The scale beneath the seal is in mm, its far too tight  8-)

I think NEW GEAR DAY ought to become a new public Bank Holiday, where we all get to empty our bank accounts, descend on our local music shops and blow the lot on shiny new gadgets! :D
