Jedson Telecaster and Simms-Watts Ike Isaacs Combo. . . . . .

Like the other recent posts, these images date back to the 1970's























Copy guitars that are available now, are so much better than some of the
ones that were available around 40 years ago.
Jedson was one of the more sought after makes and this is the actual guitar
that was mentioned in one of my earliest posts.
Ahh, those were the days!
Jedson, as a name/brand is taken from the name of the company involved,
J E Dallas & Son JED Son - Jedson!!
Simples!!! :)

It's worth having a look on here - there is loads of info.

Also in the shot is my old Simms-Watts Ike Isaacs Combo - mine had the
optional reverb on it.
Below is another shot, with a friend's guitar.
Check out the curly lead!!!!!!!!!! Priceless!























It is so long ago, now but I recall it had a pretty good sound and was plenty
loud enough for what I wanted it for.
I sold it it the early 80's - it was time to move on but I would love to have
a go with one, all these years later! :)
Simms-Watts was a well respected brand, with many bands in the 70's using
them at some point. 

Have a look here for more info on the Simms Watts Combo.

Cheers. :)
