About 6 or 8 months ago I posted some images explaining why I hadn't been on the site very much last year. This is a continuation of that theme and explains why my visits to the site have also been a bit scant this year. I've been a bit busy renovating the cellars in our Victorian House.

From this.............

One and a half more rooms to go before it's finished!

My sons both play keyboard, as well as my youngest son's Girlfriend, so we're pretty well covered in that area! I'm trying to learn guitar, but not enough time to practice at the moment

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

It would be nice if it were that easy! Would have saved me 18 months.

I looked at the horizontal accro's and wondered, "how is he going to remove those?"
And then you showed the steelwork
Impressive
Nobody commented on the great photos either

I particularly like the kitchen and its subdued lighting. Very classy.
Best regards, John

Wow! I can only imagine the effort this has taken David, but what space you've created.

Particularly Loving the bottle/wine racks . Can't forget the essentials.

Hi Stu

We have a list of guitars, just for your info and to bore everyone else!

In the image in front of the fireplace:

- Vintage V100AFD Paradise, Twin Humbuckers (Les Paul Copy, great guitar)
- Squier Joe Trohman Artist Edition Telecaster, HSH (another great guitar)

On the Guitar Rack, hidden in the top left corner:

- Fender American Standard Strat 2009 model, 3 Single Coil, in 3 tone Sunburst
- PRS SE Santana, Twin Humbuckers in Orange
- Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster, Single Coil plus Humbucker in two-tone Sunburst
- Squier Thinline Vintage Modified Telecaster, Twin Wide Range Humbuckers with Coil Split on both, natural finish
- Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass in white
- Squier Affinity Jazz Bass in Lake Placid Blue
- Fender Acoustic Guitar in Black
- Electro-acoustic Mandolin

Some of these are owned by me and some are my youngest Son's.

We've also got a few amps and other bits / pieces:

- Marshall MG100HDFX - Solid State Amp, cheap and much maligned but it's bloody good if you know how to use it
- Marshall 4x12 Cab with G12-T Celestions
- Bugera V22 Infinium Valve Amp
- Marshall MG30DFX Practice Amp
- Ashdown Bass Amp
- Laney Bass Amp
- PA Amp / system with Wharfedale speakers (forget the model of the speakers)
- Small Behringer Mixer
- 2 x Alesis Microverb Guitar processors
- Patch Bay
- Zoom effects processor (Japanese Vintage, not used it much)
- A few pedals - Electro Harmonix Big Bass Muff, Tone City /Golden Plexi / All Spark and switching pedals for the Amps

Phew! Most of this didn't cost very much (ebay bargains) and was bought mainly for Ben my Son who is studying music at Sheffield Uni and was in a band (not currently).

Wish I had a bit more time to play with them!
