The Wigan National is now only a month away! I have agreed to leap up and sing several songs with some friends. I think I better get some practice in.....

I shall not be bringing a guitar all the way from Germany this year, as it's going to be a complete pain to do so on Easyjet. So I shall be bringing my old Encore strat, that sat neglected at the side of the stage last year. However, this won't be just your normal Encore, as it's going to have a little magic done to it. For example.. I have several nice (but cheap, only 45 Euro each) Rockinger Strat Pickups with which to replace the manky old cheapo ones, and ditto with the machine heads, which will be replaced with a set of Kluson deluxes, also sourced from Rockinger. I also have a new bridge with a nice big thick metal tremolo block on it, which will improve the sound no end. ....I also have a little "magic" which I am hoping to work on the guitar....

Oh, and should anyone be bringing a left-handed acoustic to the gig, I may be persuaded to do "Blackbird".....
