GUEST,Jim Knowledge How Many Guitars...Is Enough?? (49) RE: How Many Guitars...Is Enough?? 15 Dec 17


I `ad that Lennie Styles in my cab the other day. I bought my guitar from `im when `e `ad a music shop in Lewisham. `e looked well dapper and prosperous.
I said, "Morning Len. `ave you seen on that Mudcat they`re all talking about `ow many guitars a bloke should `ave? You should `ave some idea, being in the business and all."
`e said, "Well Jim. I recall they`d come in and say "I wanna sound like Donovan or Dylan" or whoever so I convinced `em that they needed a different guitar for all their fancies. They`d buy two or three at a time, different models, and go away `appy as sandboys."
I said, " That was a nice little earner!"
`e said , "That`s not the `alf of it, Jim. I once `ad a bloke `oo wanted to sound like The Preston Guitar Orchestra. I shifted fifteen in one `it. I sold up and retired soon after!"


Whaddam I Like??
