79 out of McCormacks.

It looks like a toy. It's priced like a toy. It's a ridiculously playable tiny wee short scale guitar and it comes in a decent padded bag. Made in China. Setup fine and playable right out the box, a couple of ragged frets and some visible glue, but for eighty bucks - ah meannn!

I bought it on Saturday on a whim and I can't put it down.

Raddy came round our house last night and I had to wrestle the thing from him. Honest.

May I suggest that you shouldn't have been playing with Bostik before you picked this geetar up?

Actually looks no bad. Just the sort of instrument to accompany a rousing chorus of The Wild Rover.

Would that be the one where an irritating woman in the audience feels compelled to shout "right up your kilt" in the chorus, or the Manx version all the folkies started singing around thirty years ago to confound said shouty wumman?

That's the stuff they used to close my vasectomy incisions.

According to Dick Gaughan, I'm already a naturalised Weegee.

At least I think that's what he said.
