Good prices for such stuff back then..

Being an OAP these days, I only buy a new guitar if I can pay for it from the proceeds of the next one or two gigs... :roll: :lol:

Yep, interesting, I bought my Burns Baldwin Virginian half price
from Tower Music in Blackpool, brilliant guitar, still got it now, it's like an old pal
Nice to have that bit of history. Thanks Stuart.

I have a Grant LP copy; I always thought it was a nice guitar but didn't realise it may have come from one if the better Japanese factories. I didn't like the pickups so fitted a pair of cheap Mighty Mites which are good for making a noise, but fairly muddy and very hard to get any sort of a clean sound from. Having read this I'm going to refit the old pickups and see if I can find anything about it by the serial number, which I'm sure I remember seeing on it somewhere.

I tried to post a pic but can't get it to upload. Cheers, BIX
