And John, don't let you know who from you know where hear you've said you know what.

Thanks but no thanks. I can't do it to the big feller.
I want him to enjoy his moment in the spotlight. cheers

Thanks fellas! Yeah, these were available in 1983 only and in red which in this case has morphed into a rather attractive metallic pink; I think it's wonderful!!
I know, I know..... it's just a Spectrum in a pretty frock but the shape does it for me in big lumps, and combine that with TPs' genius H/S/H set up and we have a winner!
It has the usual bruises and dings on the points, as well as over the rest of he body, but it's 30 years old and has been used, so I'm not bothered! The neck is in wonderful shape with barely any fret wear and the rosewood board in lovely nick though its sucking up Lizardspit like a good 'un!!

Pickups are 45s, and I've had to resolder the leads where they had been cut; I didn't realise until now that the bridge pickup is a 4 wire pup, and the neck a three! You live and learn, eh!

I used to poison possums as a young fella and we used cyanide paste; we had to advertise the fact that we had poison lines out so the general public wouldn't go round licking it off the posts! Though if they had, death would have been very quick indeed; the possums usually got about 2 steps in before they tipped over!

Steve, I think she likes it.... she didn't make retching noises when she saw it.... that's a good sign, right!?

If I remember correctly, four wire MMK's are for both phase reverse and coil cut switching. The three wire MMK's can't be phase reversed, just coil cut.

You only need to reverse the signal in one of the pickups on a guitar and the effect can only be heard in the middle position, both pickups on together.

That's right as in a Thunder II with PEQ.

In fact you'll have 5 wires if you include the shield/earth.
