    Look at this:

    Ita s 1957 re-issue with a 50th anniversary hologram on the back of the headstock. The colour is shell pink, and to my knowledge is quite rare.

    I picked it up from Spike yesterday and he is definitely a top bloke with some lovely basses!!

    So what do you all think?!

    I wouldn't go for the pink myself but those 50th anniversary models are great. I played one a few weeks ago and I thought it was really well built with a great sound.

    Cheers.:D
     
  4. Chris,

    Your welcome mate.
    Sorry to see her go, but I know you'll look after her as much as I did.

    Looks good with the black scratch plate as well.

    Thanks, I think it looks really unusual and a bit retro. Its true to say Spike is a bit of a legend indeed!!
     
  7. Hi Henry,
    Hows it going man?

    Kes has settled in fine, and only 2 months to go and we're off again, Lol.

    Think at last I've made the right decision.

    Hope life is treating you and your lady well.

    Spike.
