JHS Vintage AMG3 tricone Guitar
Puka Rosette Series Concert
there was a big (100+) Guitar auction today that also had a number of other instrument and musical paraphernalia. Sadly I had to go out in the middle of it and missed a number of bargain Guitars but I was there for a lot of it and I did manage to invite a couple of things including a JHS Vintage Tricone Resonator, (I know I have a JHS Vintage Single Cone Resonator, but I have always wanted to get a Tricone to hear the difference in sound) , a 24 track digital Portastudio and a
Drum Kit!!!
Alesis Lite
That's right an Alesis DM Lite electronic drum kit!! Now the last electric drum kit I had, I beat to death within a year because I was way to heavy handed but that was 30 years ago and electronic drum kits have come a long way since them, (and hopefully I have mellowed too?)

Then on top of all thing I had my offer accepted on a Puka Rosette Series Tenor Ukulele so that is coming too.

They're Here

The Puka is a very nice Concert, (well it didn't say in the listing so I made a "best guess" from the photo), well made good, evenly applied burgundy finish, nice decals and good solid hardware
The Drum kit is very nice, now I just need a stool; and somewhere to set it up?
The Tascam is very nice, now I just need some studio mics; and somewhere to set it up?
The Tricone would have been very nice if the auction house hadn't badly damaged the neck! they told me this after I had driven half way across the country and collected it, (the shipping company gave me a ridiculous quote to ship it; and I thought I was a good customer of theirs). They wouldn't offer any compensation for their clumsiness, just the offer of not buying it at all, which was not a lot of good after i had collected it! Well I know one auction house, (TW Gaze of Diss), that I will never use again. I think the damage is repairable, and if it isn't the body and machine heads are fine so I can just replace the neck.
