Yesterday we had a call from a friend about acquiring some guitars, "bring them in and we'll have a look" we said. A while later we have several cases to open, as the first case is being opened to reveal a big headstock natural strat
"It's a '79 with serial number S958569" I say.
Yes is the reply;how did you know that?
"It was my first Strat bought new in 1980" I say. - I hadn't seen it since the last century.
I had traded it in for a Marshall 100 watt head. Ever since I have wondered what happened to it and wished I had kept it.
Here are some pics then (1981) and now, needless to say it's not going anywhere now
Can anybody help me find a Gibson hardcase for a Firebird with banjo tuners (my new toy a 2005 in wine red) It needs to be Gibson only as Gator etc aren't deep enough to keep the banjo tuners away from the back of the case; I don't mind if it's brown or black, many thanks and fingers crossed Martin
