Re: Wilson guitars
Hello there. I recenlty bought a left-handed Wilson semi-acoustic for Â£50 as it didn't have a nut or bridge on it. Another Â£50 quid later and it's been professionally set up and sounds class. Mine's got a bolt-on neck, a Bigsby-esque trem system and two really class pick-ups on it. The serial number on the neck plate is 18207. Any further information on the guitar or the Wilson company gratefully accepted! I'm also chasing information about an effects pedal I have - it's an Electrolabs Sustain pedal, made in England, pretty good sound on it but I know absolutely nothing about this at all!! I also have an original 60's Watkins Copicat with spare tapes - it's not in mint condition but still does the business fine.

: : Hi. I owned a wilson semi acoustic back in 1970, but like a prat I exchanged it for an SG cos it used to feedback a lot at High volume. (200w on 10). I still miss the damn thing, and would be delighted to buy another one. Mine was a tobacco sunburst with chrome hardware - Schaller pickups and machines. If anyone has one to sell please let me know.
