New Gaff

Well, we may well have a new view to look out on this autumn. We are buying a new gaff soon.

We decided this was a bit fancy for us.



So we settled on something rather more modest.



Which is larger on the inside that you might expect.



But seriously, once the dust has settled I hope the change of surroundings might kick me back in to photography*

Re: New Gaff

I think number 146 would make an amazing home, the views from the penthouse suite would be wonderful.

Ooh, Marshall - no I don't think so...

Basic stuff: Tearing off the black Tolex and sticking Tweed on the woodwork because everyone knows tweed amps sound better.

Then changing tone stack circuits, adjusting the output bias, fitting better speakers. Fiddling with negative feedback.

I bought my Fender Cyber Twin of someone who had a similar outlook but I think his "front" was a blues model.
