Update January 2017 – New “Old” Geetars for “The Skids” – Yamaha SG-200 (1983)
In addition to the work between Ghost Pick ups and Elite Vintage Guitars, we are also kitting out the Skids for their upcoming 40year anniversary tour and work on their new album to commemorate this. AS the guitar tunings are vastly different from the “big Country” sound a multiple set of guitars is required reflecting the variety in tuning. No problem as Wilf Vissenga and I are keen to get these boys off to a flying start.
Elite Vintage Guitars has been successfully teaming up with Ghost Guitar Pickups UK (Wilf Vissenga) to provide iconic bands “Big Country” and “the Skids” with a high quality vintage Yamaha SF-700, modded with super hot “Field of Fire” Ghost Pick ups.
Here we have the birth of the “Superfrightr SF-700, with Wilf and Jay then Bruce taking delivery and testing the “Beast”……no doubt you will all be hearing and seeing this axe and more in action soon.
