my guitars quite old the countryman by hohner, I have been in many shops in my town and other towns seen finishes on the countryman but, never seen the finish I have on it again. I wonder if it was a one off style. I have seen it with golden and black sunbusrt but this orange tone not seen. my mother bought me it in the 90's it swamps my frame and it's very heavy to carry. Having said that I can only play it seated lol! The guitar has a deep tone to it also, I enjoy playing it but for my own fun.
I always wanted to get my song lyrics and melodies recorded but only got the copywritten. I have books sheets written nearly got signed once but, the guy wanted me to umm "put out" as he said when I said no keep it strictly professional he, quit doing backing for my lyrics and quit ringing me! my mother was really upset it broke her heart and I vowed never to learn guitar or sing..I put the guitar and lyrics to one side and just quit! I am still feeling I am on a losing road as, I am learning guitar but, I am getting older now..and I don't think age is on my side with music.I was born in 80's so...I don't know lol! I still walk around humming singing my songs but, no one to put the chords behind it so it's upto me to get cracking on guitar lol! who knows maybe one day they will be completed when I am 100 :-)
I had various people offer to collab then get tied up in own work or the oh you are female I am male scenario again so...it would draw a blank.
my guitar playing is lacking as it's been years since picked one up but, now I have 3 of the little devils.
2 of which belonged to a friend now passed over and I just got one today a rockwood lx90L had to reasemble it and put headstock back on. other is a fender squier sa-100. I am currently practicing on the Squier I like the tone better as it's brighter than the hohner.
take care !
