    Bit of a quandary, I like a wide neck for picking but not a fat neck, the prs tremonti seems to be a fat wide neck but some are saying they are not all fat necks. I've always liked vintage Gibson Les Paul necks but having said that I also like strat necks.

    I bought a VOX guitar a few years back. It's a stunning guitar. I prefer it to my strat and it's better than any Gibson I've owned. I bagged it for 500 new

    Ive a whole new respect for guitar players. They make it look easy and its the instrument I wanted to be able to play. I may try and persevere but its not looking good
    It is hard at first. Don't give up, those chords will become a doddle with practice.

    Seller that insisted it was full price only for the fret King has e mailed me a reduced price. It's reasonable as it includes post but listing ends in March so he can sweat for now, maybe he will reduce the price further. It's a buyers market if you are prepared to miss out.

    Passed on that particular guitar but made an offer on another nearer to home and pick it up Thursday. Sold my guy Trameleuc so still gave some change after buying the fret King, happy days.

    I don't play these much any more, in fact they are living in their cases now. There's a Mexican Strat, Precision bass and an Ibanez active bass I bought a coupled of years ago, really thin neck, thinner than my old Rickenbacker and incredibly fast.

    i would Oliver if I could remember which hosting site I was using. Lenco heaven is so much easier, no need to host anywhere.
