hofner guitars

“My first attempt at electrifying the guitar, a Hofner President. Outside school with Rod Wyatt [on the right]. One day at school a guy called Rod Wyatt was playing and singing a Lonnie Donegan song, a record that I had at home and had seen performed on television. This was a pivotal point, as I said, ‘I have a guitar at home.’ And he said, 'Well, bring it to school and I’ll show you how to tune it and play a few chords.' 


Back to bass-ics.

Various basses I have seen in my travels lately.

  • Brand new Rickenbacker at Long & McQuade, Burlington, Canada
  • New Gibson Es semi hollow bass, also at Long & McQuade in Burlington.
  • 1973(?) Fender Mustang Bass, at The Twelfth Fret Guitarists Pro Shop, Toronto Canada
  • Hofner Union Jack Violin Bass, also at The Twelfth Fret, Toronto

My Guitars - as requested! 

These aren’t all of them, but they’re the ones I play most often!
