That model looks nice and comfy... I like the narrower pickups, too.
Floating bridges I kinda knock around, but I'd learn to adjust. Gah!

But....but..... he put the 'B' in BTO.... that's gotta count for more than one-hit.
I was referring to The Guess Who's one hit. As far as I can tell, BTO is a no hit wonder with a cult following? I did a bit of a deep dive on youtube the other day on BTO and listened to a bunch of their songs. Not bad. Some nice guitar work. But nothing you'd hear regularly on classic rock radio or anything. :dunno:

Unless you're in Canada lol
BTO and The Guess Who fill a lot of the "Canadian content" they're required by law to play.

That said Randy Bachman has apparently been living well on royalties from all the songs he wrote for others over the years.

We must listen to different classic rock stations. These two songs are played ad nauseum. The second one was a number one hit in the US.

Cool. A guy I never heard of was a part of a one hit wonder band that is apparently still the pride of Canada 50 years later. :laugh2:
Sorry Pete....

Its got to be said....

Your embarrassing yourself........;)

The Guess Who was not a one hit wonder, actually very succesful.......



In the music community Randy Bachman is well known and a fixture in 70's music history...



Many cool tunes....






A couple of songs that charted fairly high...

Shows how old I am, but the Guess Who were one hell of a rock band in their day. I'm still a big fan over 50 years now.

Ok, fair enough, I didn't know Taking Care of Business was BTO. I retract everything I said. They a super duper important and famous band and all of Canada is made better by their existence.
