    Hi everyone - I'm Alistair - or 'Al' - from Birmingham (England)

    - this is exciting since I live for guitars and have built up a lovely collection to show off for the first time!!
    Although my main piece of kit is a beautiful Gretsch G6120 Eddie Cochran signature model which I aquired in 2012 - I have aquired this acoustic recently - and I've been 'ogling' this beautiful baby for approx 35 years (when, at approximately 5 years old, I aquired my first Elvis book!!) - I'm so excited about this guitar, and I now have all the guitars I have dreamed of.

    Come to think of it, how do I upload a pic of my guitars to this post?
    Hopefully some kind soul will be able to help me with this!!

    In the mean time, it's great to be in amongst folk who are guitar crazy like me!

    - My youtube account for anybody interested is 'ajpm100'
    hope to hear from some folk who want to respond to this
    - 'over and out' - Al

    Al, when you hover over an image, there is a little gear icon in the upper right corner. Click it and select "View full resolution". Then copy the link from the address bar in your web browser, click the yellow picture icon in the TGP text area, paste the link, and click ok.

    Voila:
