Gorgeous guitar Rustyslide. Nice to know there are a few MIJ guitar nuts on this forum.


I have a Fender Japan '54 RI, too. Tokai-made, I think, since it's a 2005 'CIJ' model.


And you've gotta love the plaintop Les Pauls. I bought this one almost entirely for playing blues. It plays as good as it looks :)


Yeah! Which model is it? I put a phase switch in mine for the neck pickup, for the Peter Green sound.

I'm in Cape Town, South Africa. I play guitar (sigh). I've only become serious about blues guitar recently. I'm trying to build my skills in order to start a duo with a piano player doing mostly Chicago blues - mixing originals with covers.

I'm trying to figure out when I'm ready. Trying to work out what that means. Also to learn what to look for in a piano player, and what it will take to work with one (who will probably have better formal music knowledge than I do).

Although with that project I intend to play Freddie/Albert KIng, P. Green, Clapton style guitar and sing with the piano holding down most of the rhythm work, I'm also interested in delta blues and bottleneck.

Artists I love:

Furry Lewis
Gus Cannon
Peter Green
Muddy Waters
John Lee Hooker
Robert Johnson
Bukka White
Eric Clapton (early guitar playing)
Freddie King
Mississippi Fred MacDowell

...and others.

I'm active on the South African Guitar Forum, the Tokai Forum, and Mylespaul under the same name. I'm not exclusively into blues, but I do love it and want to play it for the feeling it can bring, rather than just as a platform for improvisation - which seems to be how some people view it.
