    I think a Morley water machine would be a superb bit of kit. Would seriously reduce pack weight although i think there is more to it than is obvious. The ability to absorb moisture through the skin is where i think its at and im pretty sure that is what shewie has secretly done.

    Oooophs! - just calculated what size I could make it, if I ordered 9mts of cuben (min order quantity) direct from the manufacturers :biggrin::D:D
    - perhaps I should finish the first one before dreaming of another :redface::redface::redface::redface::speechless:

    Retirement, although I'd settle for a regular 4 day working week TBH.
    You know, other than that I'm actually struggling to think of anything. I have more gear than I need (I suspect that might be blasphemy around here)

    I'd take the Gold Top or a pre CBS jazz master over all on this site SC
    Are you a Gibson purist? ;)

    No not a Gibson purist, in fact i dont own any ....by accident really all i have now are Strats ('77 American and early 80s Japan) and a late 80s Washburn EA20 or is it 40?

    Way back in the day my first proper guitar was an Les Paul copy out of Kay's catalgue :)but I am now at an age where wanting to be Neil Young is accepable and thus the lust for a Gold Top, it will never happen ,i cant even justify it to myslef , Just dreamin'.....

    So you play?
