Congrats Willie!!
Happy birthday to them both!!
My friend here in Scotland has a Europa 6 and a Spoiler 6!!!
The Europa is wonderful-----but WAAAAYYYY too heavy for me.
My other Scottish mate , our own "Jacko" has 3 Alembics!!

Wish I was rich!

Wish I was rich too. Spent too much on my toys to have a holiday this year.
Good to see you back George. Where've you been?

Hi Graeme!!
I just couldn't come up with anything good to say for a while-and to tell the truth, certain members posts became rather tedious and almost offensive so, I decided to wait until I had something sensible to say.
The post about old basses certainly stirred my interest hence the posting ( I also wanted something profound to use as my 1000th post).
I'm not gigging anymore---at the moment so things are quite tight.
My 75 P bass is a stonker mind you!!

Keep in touch

Oh! and for those interested, my 76 Series has Abalone inlays with Silver surrounds!!
I assume that this was a custom addition at the time.
