The Incredible Journey -the red Tele

Postby grammer » Fri Nov 23, 2012 3:55 pm

Heres a kind of an Incredible Journey story
On a music site I am a memer of -
PJ( a member in Iowa) was planning on coming to the UK & Ireland next year
but changes in employment means her trip is cancelled
so she came up with the idea of sendind a guitar around the UK the US and Canada and to mise here in the good old Boro to be signed and used on a recording
so Mike in the UK came up with the idea of buying a Tele for her on ebay
so it began its journey in Manchester with Mike and Dunny in Liverpool then on to Exeter where Stevie Set it up and made a few modifications to it
it arrived to me Wed and as of this morning is now on its way to Scotland and Alex
so I will keep you updated

Wow that's amazing Grammer. How much is costing to ship around? I mean how much will it cost you now to forward it on? With who? Cheers. :D

Grammer,

Great idea. I see the signing on it now.Can't wait to hear the recording. Pity P.J couldn't make the trip but, this will be a great souvenier.

and that is being signed by eveyone as well.
More info to follow.
