I am pleased to report that these White guitars are just beautiful in the flesh...sound and play great too!! Feels like Christmas has come in April this year here in the UK :D Many thanks to Tim at Sound Affects, the folks at Rosetti, and Ben Hall at the factory for making this happen...I know this initiative has been much appreciated by your customers here in the UK.

Good pics Eddie - congrats. The body shape and rounded horns are nice details. It looks REALLY white too, sweet.

Plays great Brian. Sounds good too!! :D

I really feel this is quite an historic moment in time. As far as I know, these are the first UK special order guitars since the original Rose Morris exports of the '60's. Hats off again to Tim at Sound Affects and Rosetti for working with the factory to make this happen after 45 years. 8) I'm hoping we don't have to wait another 45 for the next one... :wink:

Thought I'd post another couple of pics now I've finally figured our how to get them on the forum..

Sort of "old meets new". You can take that as either Me + the Pearl Whites (thought I'd get in first on that) - or Rose Morris original + The Pearl Whites.

Cheers Tim

Irrespective of what people might or might not like about these, they are something very special!

Tim, you guys really got a nice corner with Rickies there! :D

Tim:

Very cool pictures! Your Rose Morris is in "moonglo" -

Is it FB410 that was so recently discussed?

Mark, a beauty. Thanks so much for your photo. You are a lucky man. A very unique Rickenbacker finish.
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Thanks for pointing this out. It's a good thought.
Congrats on the guitar, too!
