Time to Sell Up

It’s time to sell up. I’m selling three of my four electric guitars. Only Christine is staying. 🙂

Django, Jurgen and the Ibanez RGT42DX are all for sale.

$500, $990 and $600 respectively.

Check the listing on ausband.

Also selling a 1972 Marshall Artiste 100W tube amp, retubed and fitted with attenuator, ohm output selector (4, 8 and 16) and a nice spring reverb. Valued at $1200 but will consider offers over $600.

Amp and Cabinet Plans

The amp I was given for moving a friend twice in a week is in for repairs. I’ve heard nothing from the store since I dropped it off but am not too concerned. The head is 100 watts and will be more powerful than I need so I am looking at an attenuator on eBay. There is one sitting at a good price so it’s in my sights. Am very curious about the sound since its clean is described and Fender-like. A cabinet is going to be required and there’s a good one on eBay, too. Peavey 5150 cabinet with the Sheffield speakers: at a very reasonable price; that will be do nicely.

Progress

I’ve been making progress in guitar. My ability has increased a little bit but it is noticable. Picking speed and scale speed has escalated. I’m quite happy with it. Between 15 and 120 minutes of playing a day with at least 15 minutes of focused practice is what I’m putting in. That feels great to know that I’m putting in that time. My practice does need to be a little more focused over all and a little more directed towards end-goals but time is what I have to put in and that is the action-plan so far.

The Stable

After purchasing a guitar-rack from KCs Rockshop for $85 I now have a stable on display in my study. Here’s some pictures of the trio.

The Stable

Meet Django

Named after Django Rheinhardt this Yamaha SA-800 is my newest stable member. A gift from my Dad! I happened to think, I should contact Dad and see how he’s going, and did. Then he gives me a guitar. To reward myself in collecting it I made sure I finished my tax-return, first. That was done the night after (Wed.) and I collected it on Saturday. Nice instrument and with new strings he’ll be sweet.

Return of Christine

She’s back: after a setup at a famous luthier (whose father used to setup Jimmy Page’s guitars) Christine is fine-sweet-fine. Lots of room for bending without being a cowboy guitar that needs gorilla grip to fret the strings. Beautiful tone! It’s even made a convert out of my Les Paul officiando friend. Back to practicing!

Future Focus

Now that I have purchased an LP type guitar my fascination with various instruments has come to an abrupt end. Since I know what acoustic guitars I’d like I have no compelling need to survey them continually to find the best option available. This is great because I have made mental space to focus my practice more effectively and build structure and routine into my regime. So it is only upwards from here.
