    I finally did GLW his Fender Antigua squares for reaching 500+ posts, but the final result looks like it could be a number of things, including a chicken. Nevertheless, feast your eyes on what will always be remembered as the colour only a mother could love.

    GLW, what would you like in place of ‘Lover of Fine Antigua’?

      It was in “as new” condition.

      I asked £350 for it.

      Which is what my Ovation cost me.

      As far as I’m concerned it’s one guitar for another.

      Don’t be daft, it looks quite nice.

      He did pay me for the guitar, you know.

      You sure you gave it to the right person? maybe you got the address wrong? banged on the next door neighbours door and handed it over.
      I would say ‘thank you, thank you’ if i got a free Antigua Strat, but whilst smiling i’d be looking around for the half empty tin of Nitromoors paint stripper, and that stack of sandpaper i bought from B&Q on offer.

      Just 5 mins with an orbital sander and it would once again be a playable Jap Strat.

      Anyhoo…

      Last night I took the Antigua Strat around to its new owner in Putney, London, and he was absolutely thrilled with it. He kept saying “Thank you, thank you…” and I thought, you don’t have to thank me you;ve already given me the cash for it.

      It was in absolute pristine condition. It looked like it had never been played and I think he was impressed with that.

      After that we went to see a gig by Wreckless Eric (you always get your money’s worth with Eric!) and Amy Rigby. Anyone here heard of her? She’s well worth checking out, and she can’t half thrash that Gibson J45.

      Take “the based on true events” statement very lightly Lee. Whilst it does take a little from the backpacker murders/Ivan Milat case, the whole story in Wolf Creek case is pretty much fiction. Except for the fact we all drink more than the poms 🙂

      Oh I agree GLW, on the TV end of things. Our film industry has hit rock bottom but in recent years. Wolf Creek was our first mainstream hit for a while. The makers of SAW also hit it big, but that was technically an American production.

      If you want quality aussie TV, get your hands on Frontline DVDs or The Games DVDs.

      [quote=”Michael”]Best aussie horror film in years Lee. We don’t turn out much of anything worth watching. Yet it’s hard for us aussies to take John Jarrett, aka the killer, seriously, considering the amount of times we’ve seem him Handy Andy a cupboard on TV and f’up “Happy Christmas” come December.[/quote]

      How did they know what happened to those girls? the guy who escaped and told the story was the only witness, and he didnt see much of anything? Still a great film though, ‘Head on a stick’ still makes me cringe.

      Oh, I dunno. I’ve seen plenty of great Aussie films. Certainly better than the shite that Hollywood churns out. As fo TV, “Kath and Kim” is one of the bext comedies of recent years from anywhere.

      With my drink problem, and my kidneys, I’m not likely to be thinking diasies am I? Not wanting to get all girly, surely you meant buttercups or primroses? Call in the Stacey to mod this one…(ducks for cover)

      Only you would think it resembles piss. Everyone else imagined a field of daisys at worst.

      Without wishing to diss the Antigua (and I’ve already congratted glw on his achievement); can I say, Mike, that your choice of squares looks (quite literally) like a streak of pee?

      Cough on the two outer squares, get Stacey to scan it, job done.

      haha he actually dared me to give him it and I’m not one to turn down a dare.

      As for the final colour result, it was as close as I could get, and by close, I mean as long as my eyes could tolerate looking at it. That’s sampled from the Fender Antigua set in the Worst by the way. So it is authentic.

      Guy takes the time to send in 500+ well thought out posts, and what do you give him Mike? Antigua? more like Trinidad and Tobabgo.
      Maybe its the thin Ozone layer down in your part of the world? but im not going to make excuses for you.

      1/10 – could do a lot better.

      I just hope glw stays with us and doesnt defect to another guitar forum. 😆
