This site is a mine of information and I'm so pleased I found it.
I've been playing on and off since 1960, starting off as a bass player in a rock band.
In between I've done a bit of country and western but now in the last year or so have focused on The Shadows.
My current kit is Vox AC30 C2 and Fender Stratocaster Custom. (My own customization) This started life as a Highway One but has since been re fretted with .050 vintage frets and Kinman Impersonator pickups installed. Wiring harness converted back to standard Strat except that the bridge pickup is wired to the bottom tone control. Also just managed to acquire a Quadroverb Plus for which I'll now purchase the EFTP patches.
Presently I only have 14 Shadows tunes under my belt but I also play a lot of other stuff in the Shadows style.
Hi Viv A BIG welcome to the site.reading your posting you certainly are a enthusiastic guitar player like the members on here so you will find a lot topics and information to keep you looking in.Charlies EFTP will add extra to your Shadows tunes along with a lot of other tunes you play.
Hi Viv Welcome. Now you have Bridge tone a further great mod is to make that pot a push/pull so that the "pull" gives you neck+bridge pickup selection, the turn of the pot bleeding in more/less neck. Cheers Ian
