They also had a 340/12 BBR for just a smidge more. It's enough to make you turn to scratchcards...

I should be an expert on this as I've been trawling websites for weeks before I eventually got my MB 330 (they don't have many music shops in Inverness and none with any Rickenbackers).

This page still makes me drool though:

I'd take any one of those and not complain. I'm sure I saw a gorgous lefty fireglo somewhere during my search, not that I am lefty, but that was the best part of two first prize scratchcard winnings.

Cheers,

Martin

:lol: It's not every day, but most days, at work that I tell them I'll go back to London as soon as all the Scots leave London! Until then I'll enjoy the scenery in peace :)

This is a bit nice. What do you reckon a good offer price for this is (not that the Mrs would allow it)?

Cheers,

Martin

A Carl Wilson for £1650? I'd take his hand off at that price! New bog standard 360's are going for near that now.

Hi Martin

I used to be an English(wo)man in Aberdeen! Though the Aberdonian Scots didn't like me much. I was "too English" apparantly! In other words, I was ignorant of the politics.

Still, it didn't put me off the West coast (and Edinburgh) and Scotty is a pretty cool guy!! :mrgreen:
