Richard William Ineson has not received any gifts yet
How are you feeling these days. Have you returned to full health?
Hello Richard, really enjoyed the photos, great stuff, thanks for sharing them.
Many thanks for that new piece of information.
thanks for confirming the origins richard.it has been in a case in one of my neibours loft for 50 yrs.the case has an essex label in it .i traced the case on the net 1920s.the last owner put his name on the skin and the date ..1961.but i knew it was older than that ....ie..the grover tuners.i will have to search for one more.i saw an abbott on ebay and the 5th string was on the neck ...this one goes trough a tunnel in the fingerboard.....is it an earlyer model perhaps?...it would be good to find out...thanks again....allan
thats a good idea richard,ime afraid ime a novice so far .i would rather have 4 strings at the moment...i fingerpick on my guitars but the string spacing in alian to me at the moment ...i will get another bridge and spread the strings a bit...thanks
