The Truth and Lies

08/03/2017

img Has any body got a guitar that for some reason is unknown in there country, that may be a so called student, cheep junk or both that just oozes Mojo? And then that very guitar does not matter what you seem to plug it in to inspires you? It might be your second guitar or the one and only one.

Or like this one my second one the one that works well in the normal home environment, only to do something odd as soon as you take it to a venue, caused by a combination of the PA and a omnidirectional mike picking up the hiss from your amp set to a slightly High Gain tone that sound being sent out to the front of house gets picked up by the micro-phonic pick-ups then its “wwweeeeEEEEEEEEE” from the amp that high pitched wine that is worse than finger nails on a chalk board. This thing was so low out put to get feedback from the strings it just never happens! But you keep on keeping on and have the best playing experience by using the volume knob all that performance!

img This thing was rescued from one of those big rubbish bin things. When I got it had been a wall hanger for years Non functional. A little maintenance work a swapped guitar for payment it was mine.

Originally I was going to strip the finish and do it up for a quick flip, soon into the research as I found out it was one of thousands sent to there doom as a student guitar to have a life as a beater to be junked, being made in 1984 in Japan just that the thing was rare-ish. Most had been parted out for there necks and machine heads.

When I got it going (jammed volume pot, worn out 5 way, nut that was in two parts and a jack that had seen better times) I just could not bring my self to strip the finish (super thick poly, green hue in the clear coat over a black base coat) I kept it the way it was and played and played it. Used it in many recordings and song writing sessions.
