Hi Lou, thanks for your comment. How is your No 7 Cohiba guitar tuned? I love the sound you get out of it, very melodic.

Hi Lou, glad you like your new shorter scale neck.  I sure like my shorties.  Comfy to hold, easier to do finger chords and even for shuffle stuff, just a bit easier to reach.  


Oooh I see some pretty gits on your slide show.

Hi Lou, Thanks for the request - your funky avacado is pretty inspiring, unusual playing but brilliant all the same!
