Yeah, mate - get in!!

AC30s are a little addictive, eh; I've not owned one for years and miss it more than I probably should!!

Duo-jet?

Yep the f'trons are excellent p,ups, love the sound especially these vintage one's from the 60's.

Gretsch do have some weird names for their guitars ie. White Penguin,Country Gentleman,Round up etc. and a confusing array of models.

I always had difficulty sorting out the Gretsch models and features when we sold them at the shop. But the owner was a huge fan and advertised us as the largest G dealer in the Province. He knew these things inside and out, and we sold quite a few.

I was always impressed with them but only a few really turned my crank. The Japanese built models (shipped from Japan) were flawless right out of the case, and the tuning only slightly off! Remarkable.

Coincidentally, Vintage Guitar magazine is running a series on James Burns, plus the groups who were famous for using the Burns guitars...like the Shadows (Corsair should be happy about that!).

Mate, I was never a huge Shads fan and loathed covering Apache or Wonderful Land or Kon-tiki and especially Cavatina, though I enjoyed playing the finger-picked rhythym guitar to that; only really enjoyed Man of Mystery!! 
However, I did enjoy Bruce Welchs rhythym guitar work,  probably more than Hanks lead lines if I'm honest!

Burns guitar are COOL! They have, or used to have a greenburst finish that was simply mega....

My mistake then. I was of the impression that you really dug the Shadows.
As for Apache, Jørgen Ingmann's version was just superb and left Hanks' in the dust!
