Some of my user space pages here:
- User:Andrewa/silly ideas some impossible dreams, and gathering data for some see User:Andrewa/support for my silly ideas
- User:Andrewa/Primary Topic RfC probably the least silly of them, see User:Andrewa/negative benefit
- User:Andrewa/A proposal regarding capital letters in article titles and associated pages... If you thought the New York fiasco was tense, hold on to your hats... User talk:Andrewa/A proposal regarding capital letters in article titles#Recent RMs is a place to gather ideas and evidence
- User:Andrewa/Optional diacritics likewise... and of course User talk:Andrewa/Optional diacritics

Nice to look at, hey, these are all very pleasant company
2005 Fender Jaguar Baritone Custom. Identical to the successor model the Fender Jaguar Bass VI Custom except for the headstock decal (representing < one cm2 of paint), and not a baritone in anything but name, in both senses continuing the proud Fender tradition regarding names. Note the two pickups, presence of the upper circuit, and fixed bridge tailpiece. It's a typical retro instrument; It's exactly what people think they remember Jack Bruce playing but of course he didn't, the retro is fiction, and it's the right instrument for creating something brand new based on this fiction. Also it's too short for the Jazz Bass case! That was the best Fender Australia could do (it comes in a soft gig bag). I love the Fender Jaguar electrics, other than that I like to keep it very simple.
A Rosa Hurricane and a Maton Freshman. See Talk:Electric guitar#Bad picture redux, Talk:Electric guitar#Rosa Hurricane and Talk:Electric guitar#Gotta Say for some, um, discussion of them. Skiffle reject indeed! The Maton, an excellent instrument, was also lost in the fire. The Rosa, built as a piece of junk but somehow using good components, has with some repairs and other TLC turned out excellent... good neck, two nice humbuckers, basic classic passive electrics, body does the job standing or sitting and looks in-your-face, nice tuners... what more dya want..? Oh, be nice if it fitted a flight case... paid twice as much for the case as I did for the guitar... and worth every penny...
The electric mandolin (left) would probably be called semi-acoustic by many, but it had a better acoustic sound than the bowl mandolin next to it, and a better electric sound than the electric mandolin I had played since the 1970s. I wasn't shopping for mandolins really, but I came back the next day and bought it. Also lost in the fire.
This isn't mine but I have one identical, well built and lovely to play and I guess Kurt Cobain thought so too, but my first bass guitar was the matching bass made just a few years later (both MIJ) and it is a piece of absolute junk
I don't have a baryton and can't play it anyway, but isn't it lovely?
