GUEST,Colin Lonnie Donegan (184* d) RE: Lonnie Donegan 11 Feb 07


Well it all passes on a dull Winter's Sunday, and if people do put us down as anoraks and train spotters... look at my face, am I bovvered? I guess we're much more interested in the subject than LD ever was! Re serial nos, the serial number is only valuable in revealing the year really, so the serial number of the 67 won't put another piece in this jigsaw I suppose, although the serial no. of the Sundown guitar would. I'll tell you all about the Martin "M" privately (somehow!), some minor details of the story just might hurt the feelings of someone (I'm foolishly assuming someone else might plough through this lot, unlikely but not impossible). Regarding Lonnie choosing Martins, that other Lonnie chap used one too of course, which must have been a factor. Widening the subject (not much), the Gretsch I referred to in an earlier posting was always a mystery purchase... what was the thiking behind that and where did it go I wonder?.. ah, these are the things that keep us going..
