he was one of the troubadours. After that he did a slew of session work with a lot of different people....even played for sinatra. Hes a very close friend of my fathers...and hence...for some reason took a liking to me too. We've done a lot of picking together.

Thanks, finish is a clearcoat, it's just solid rosewood, like George Harrison's.

any suggestions on how to get rid of some of this mold-type stuff on the amp?

I would try a water/vinegar combo. If that doesn't work a 10% bleach/water combo might work without altering the color.

cool, thanks. I've had the damn thing for over a decade, but only now does it get some mold. I'll give the cleaning a try next time I'm upstate.

Anyone own a Brian Moore custom shop or iGuitar? Just curious, they haven't been around in a while but they made an incredible guitar.

post #791 of 4212
I do, I have a Brian Moore Custom Shop that I bought maybe 15 years ago. Fucking sick guitar. It is a shame about their demise, but they are solid instruments.

I've been checking a few auction sites as of late, and there has been some great deals, including a '62 sunburst strat that went for like $13K. I'm waiting for a '60-'63 refin to pop up for $4-6K, and I might jump.

Hardtail? They'll probably bring down the price.

the blue one is great. Wish the neck was pre-August of '62 so it'd have the slab board, but it's still pretty great.
