    Nice Rob! Really nice.
    I can imagine your dad coming by in a few days:
    “Come to pick up my guitar”
    “i cant find it dad. I think maybe the dog ate it?”

    Thanks guys

    Hah, the great thing about us both collecting is that we always buy stuff between us. I bought him a 6120 W57 a few years ago - some of his guitars live and my house, some of mine at his. The collection is in constant rotation between us :)

    Besides your stylin guitar work, that recording is crisp. Well Done.

    Like the Eddie Cochran version, really like what you've done with it.

    Thank you :) I'm no expert with recording, just slowly learning more as I go along. I don't use an amp when I record, I use a digital board going straight to my PC but, this time, I doubled up the guitar tracks and also left a bit of the room mic in the mix so you get the acoustic sound of the guitar, too.

    Hah, not yet! I took the Black 6120DE back to his house this morning and he wants to borrow my 6120-DCH-LTD next weekend. I've got his DSW and 6122-62 here at the minute.

    Thank you! When we play it live, it's usually a bit more aggressive but I thought the more relaxed style suited the twangy lead better.
