Two heads are better than one. . . . . .

Hi to all of you who drop in.

Posts have been a little thin on the ground again!

So, here's something to keep you going.

These are the heads of the next two instruments I will feature.
These were on the article that Lars Mullen did in Guitar and Bass
Magazine but I will be loooking at them in much more detail.

The feature with Lars took up a lot of time organizing but was
well worth it. Loved it and judging by some of the comments I 
have read, so did a lot of other people.

Since then, I have been so busy and have not found any time to
continue with the collection.

So, sit tight and we'll get the ball rolling again.

Next time - Ray Cooper Custom, followed by Peter Cook Axis
Guitar - one of only 8 in the world.

Cheers. :)

Hi... have the Axis tuners been changed in its life somewhere - mine are Schaller M7s I think that were the original fitting those look more Grover like... - Axis collector nerd!

Hello mate.
When I get to put up the feature on the Axis, you will see that they are Grover and nothing indicates they were anything else. Maybe Peter reached into the drawer and thought "these will do nicely" :)

Hi I have the same gordy headless bass as you. Plays like a dream had it for over 25 years now. Never had it set up just changed the battery every now and then and the strings. Good to see one on here seem to be quite rare now.

Hi Anonymous. :)

Saw your comment about the Gordy - do want to drop me a line and tell me more, show me some pics?
Cheers. :)

Another question... the head doesn't look like it has wings on it... mine does... interesting...

Hi.:) If you mean "is the head on mine One Piece", yep, it is.
Next feature is the Peter Cook, when you will see the back on the head. Peter and I have exchanged a few e.mails recently - hoping to meet up with him again, before the end of the year. :)
