So I will take this opportunity to thanks them publicly, so a BIG thank you goes out to:
Blackstar Amplification (again)
Flattley Guitar Effects Pedals
Wow, see links above, I now have a decent enough quality stuff to give away to my Learners/Students in September when they enrol on my Guitar Maintenance/Making Course.
Someone said to me that I was wasting my times, fair enough, 70 emails wasted but 5 came up trumps and for that I am grateful.
For once a happy grumpy old git says 'Thank you and good night'
