THE guitar

Ben Fleetcroft

Recommended Posts

In my privileged position as a sponsor of this forum, I thought it only appropriate to honour this with a new guitar. The link may be slightly tenous, but stay with me on this. Here at Fleetcroft Guitars, we have assembled a new instrument soley so that I can have an avatar which fits my business and this site. Here is what it is;

  • Basswood Strat style body
  • Maple neck
  • Sperzel tuners
  • Wilkinson bridge
  • Dimarzio pickups

I have just finished fitting the frets (Dunlop 6105) and the neck is being sprayed.

The real clincher being the colour scheme - green body with two gold (well, yellow) pickups in the front two positions. As soon as the lacquer has set, I will post up a demo.

Well done that man.

I took the plunge Ben with a Fender Strat copy ( in blue and complete with skunk tail ) from a local guy who builds 'em as a hobby.

I've mastered a few chords ( Emj, Emn, Amj, Gmj, Dmj, Fmj and Cmj ) and I'm now working on changing between 'em fast enough to make it sound half decent.

Then comes rhythm :huh: and Boulevard of Broken Dreams ( I hope :help: )
