My first guitar ( aged 16 ) gave me the blues! It was a home-made crude copy of a telecaster with a very painful action and piano wire strings!

Moving on....I have now got some decent guitars including those in the pictures in the slide show above.  Currently, love the Gibson Firebird for its quirkyness and character. Also still love to play some shit guitars (funnily enough) and have rebuilt a left handed fender acoustic, purchased for £5 from a local car boot sale and threatening to use it for right handed slide, 5 string open tuning stuff at our next gig, so watch out!

After watching Sea-Sick Steve at the Hammersmith Apollo, I then made a three string 'trance' guitar. Sounds great...thanks Steve! I currently like the guitar sounds of Sea Sick Steve and the 'three kings', Freddy King, Albert King and BB King, John Lee Hooker, Otis Rush, Elmore James, Brownie McGhee, Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy, SRV, Johnny Winter, Innes Sibun, Eddie Martin, Carlos Santana, and Alexander John.
