Tri in Labour at Shildon

On Friday night we played at a Labour Party dinner to 100 people, including Lords & Ladies, an MP and a Cabinet Minister (Nick Brown). I was the only one there who was in jeans. It was a good night – apart from pedal trouble (Went straight to my amp and it sounded lush, mind!) We got another booking and were well fed (thanks Paul!)

New pickup on my Tele

Ever since I got my fab ESP telecaster I’ve had some intermittent noise issues – crackling, cutting out and such like. I finally surrendered and took it to Ron’s Music in Darlington, where my friend Pete works. A day later I got a call from Ron to say that the middle pickup was faulty.

As it happened I had several pickups lying around – nothing too exotic but I thought a Kent Armstrong Hot Rails would be fine in the middle position, so I dropped it off. The next day, the guitar was ready, and boy, did it sound great! A nice balance between the new pickup and the others.(Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck in the bridge – coil tappable – and mystery humbucker in the neck – thought it was a Duncan too, but it may not be.)
