    Hi guys.

    Well, no. I didn't get it. Saw that a mate was getting into a bidding war with another guy and left them to it. My mate won. This is good news for two reasons. 1) I know where it is and have dibs and, 2) He'll likely sell one of his other choice pieces to fund it :)

    Sorry you didn't get the guitar, but good on you for knowing when to step back. I got into a bidding war once on a guitar owned by a player I really admire. I finally asked myself why I was still bidding because my only connection to the guitar was the owner. As it turned out, he put another guitar up for sale a few weeks later that was a better fit, and I bought that one off him (no auction). Much more useful guitar for me.

    Prob a good thing I'm late to the party, Mum is over in NZ looking after her Dad atm, she could have totally brought it back for me! (not that I would have wanted to steal it from you or your mate)

    I would steal a West Street from.... anybody. I suppose y’all knew that when you bought me mine. Not sure if it wasn’t a kind of insurance policy for some of the guys that chipped in. :p

    I keep having to remind myself that I'm not a 24-fret kinda guy otherwise I'd be all over the local one. Interesting that the bridge is different to the 1980-spec ones?

    Funfact:The 1980 spec bridges came about from a request from Hans to John because of the original run of West Street LTDs.

    Not really: the 80s guitars, the 2008ish run, the odd stray - like my black one and Sergio’s white one.

    I felt lucky to make it out of your pad with mine......and that I didn't get poisoned or knocked over the head.

    Good people got their throats cut and bad people ended up with castles.
    It wouldn’t hurt to make sure your vaccines are current.
    And don’t cheap out on your body guards.

    It's too late for spoiler alerts. If you haven't watched yet what's wrong with you??? This far from the end of last season there are no excuses. Now hold the door I gotta go get some air...
