Cappuccino Instruments: Your best cheap one (29) RE: Instruments: Your best cheap one 09 Aug 02


One of my acoustics is a mongrel jumbo of no known parentage which I found in a second-hand shop in Notting Hill, London, a few years back... dirty, battered, no strings on the damn thing, and looking very sorry for itself. Forty pounds sterling, and with a clean-up and a new set of strings it sounded great, and still does - terrific loud rhythm instrument.

My only six-string electric is another un-named, by someone who I suspect once saw a Les Paul, vaguely remembered what it looked like, and tried to copy it. Again, forty quid in a junk shop... but it's a wafer-thin body, and the lightest-weight guitar I've ever played!

Cheapos all the way, for some of us...
