    For Trade For Trade - Fender Custom Shop Jazzmaster 62 NOS - Olympic White 2017

    A very recent acquisition but sadly the slim 62 Jazzmaster neck profile causes severe wrist and hand pain. I’ve suffered with tendonitis for a few years now and I actually thought it had gone as the last few guitars have been ok… but nope this JM isn’t playing ball. From the little I’ve been...

    Rockabilly practice with the kids and my Hot rod

    I follow your band on FB Stu so I’ve seen this before, fantastic! We’ve got a little one on the way and I’m determined to get them playing. I think you know Mike Jones who taught me guitar years ago.
