Just about to start transcribing some Ron Sayer. He plays really tasty lines! Great sound on your GT.

That guitar is 9lb of pure tone.I still have my 72 walnut top to ease the pain.Some say Norlins are rubbish and definately not "vintage".

Wow, he really squeezes the tone out of that guitar. Very nice.

Thanks for sharing marantz! I've never heard of him before? He's quite good!

Beautiful GT, most have been really hard to part with?


:cheers:

Thanks again Marantz1300 for the GT! It's a sweet thing indeed :)

The refret has breathed new life into it and the T-Tops give me just the right amount of air and dare I say 'tele-like' cut. Be safe in the knowledge that its being looked after B-)

Thanks for the kind comments too guys.

Hi Ron

Welcome to the site. I just started transcribing that minor blues video you did on YouTube. I was going to contact you for some Skype lessons once I have completed it. Your right hand technique is wonderful and challenging. I am used to seeing you play a tele. Really liked your tone on the GT. I hope you become a regular.

Guys if you haven't heard Ron's album you should listen to the album sampler on Ytube. Really great stuff.

I'm sure you did, but tell him if he ever decides to part with it, you have first dibs!
