Verdicts for Favorite Guitarists . . .

May 02, 2021,17:55 PM

. . . will follow shortly in this thread, courtesy Boris (Static), Abel (WotW), and Kevin (Wrist Shot).

Thanks to all who participated, and especially to those who contributed their own guitars and video clips - I'd no idea there were so many musicians here!  So many guitarists were mentioned; I'm a bit surprised at those that didn't garner a mention.

Bert Jansch and John Renbourn . . .

. . . Alex Lifeson . . .

. . . Hank Marvin . . .

. . . Albert Collins . . .

. . . Dave Mason . . .

. . . Mick Ralphs . . .

. . . Kenny Burrell . . .

. . . and countless others.  Hope you all had a good time this week sharing another passion besides watches - we'll do it again sometime soon.
