    Some time ago my godfather passed away. Mum text me recently to say that he had been learning to play guitar whilst he was poorly, and had decided that after he passed I should have his guitars; an electric and an acoustic. I know no more than this. And I am truly honoured that he would think to do this for me.
    Now, I recently got a 'hefty' bill from the Inland Revenue and was forced to sell all my guitars except for my cheap a***, but much loved Peavey. Not a problem as I knew I would have these 2 guitars coming.
    However, I now find myself in lockdown and so cannot receive them, so I thought we could all play a little game....

    Anyone fancy playing a guessing game of what these 2 guitars will be???

    There will be points awarded to the closest guess when the quarantine period here in Blighty is over and I can take custody of them.

    Do we get a hint of what decade he could have gotten them? If he was my parents age (or older) and got them when he was young, I’m gonna guess the acoustic is a no-name “classical” style, and the electric is either a Teisco-esque MIJ thing or maybe a Harmony... But if he decided to learn in the last 20 years, I’d vote for a Squier Strat copy and an Epi acoustic...

    Well....!!!!!
    He had collected every number one album on vinyl, then continued with cds when they took over. So we could say he was a music lover.... So this could bode well.

    The current lockdown is stopping me from picking them up for a little while....

    I'm thinking something in a Tokai and maybe a Tanglewood, but I like some of the guesses that are coming in more!!!

    An Encore acoustic and a Squier Strat pack, both from Argos...well somebody had to be realistic, the 59 Les Paul Standards and J200s are a bit ott for a beginner and if it was me that's what I'd have coming
