Hey 'Roach!

If you still want a 12 string and hurry up, there is one on EBay Australia that might interest you - a Jap Squire Venus XII 1997 model, currently at about $405.00AUD with four hours left to go. Item number is 230589910542. ;)

Thanks Bill- nice thought, but I'm still paying off my son's wedding reception on the credit card!

Also, a complete shortage of gigs over here at present means there's not much spare pocket money either...if I could score three or four gigs I could afford that 12, but I'm also too scared to buy off the net...I have to be able to try a guitar before buying.

At least that one on e-Bay doesn't have a de-tuner fitted... ;)

Bill,
I actually bought a later model of that 12 string Framus acoustic a few years ago for about $90, I was going to remove the neck and put it on a solid body-never got round to it I'm afraid.

That is sad news.

Stan was particularly famous for his custom-made 12-string jumbos (ordered by Tom Springfield, Pete Seeger and many others), but he also made a range of six-string instruments. One of those was wielded by my ex-bandmate Paddy Kelly up in Liverpool in the 1970s.

RIP, Stan.
