Bowling For Soup Competition


Recommended Posts

Hello again, folks! I know it's been a while since I've posted but I have been lurking quite often. And believe it or not I've still been building. (Full build posts coming soon I promise)

The green one is done other than a rear cover plate. 

Anyway I digress - my 2 sons have entered a competition to win a band meet with Bowling For Soup & autographed guitar. The entry consists of a video of themselves singing a Bowling For Soup song, in their case, Surf Colorado & the video with the most views wins. If any of you could bring yourselves to watch it once or twice (or more if you feel the need ;) ) then I would greatly appreciate it. 

 

You will find the video here - https://youtu.be/ZT0cLFYq-Pc

Once again I thank you all in advance & apologize for any trauma experienced.

Thanks Scott! They'll appreciate the feedback. They had some feedback on twitter from BFS & Lacey (support band on the tour) & both bands said they loved it too. Believe it or not this is a normal Friday/Saturday night in our house. 

The oldest is learning to play & is keen to start building guitars too (watch this space - it would be good to build one together). He has his eye on the green strat but unfortunately this batch (walnut strat, surf green tele, white tele & green strat) are all for sale so I told him to get his wallet out lol ;)

Yes, the youngest is definitely a character - you don't know the half of it, you want to see him when he gets his mic stand out & goes full Steve Tyler/Jon Bon Jovi with it - complete with scarves tied too it!

Cheers Carl, it's been hard work! My normal build rate is about 1 every 2 years, so this time I thought & I'd batch build stuff ie when I'm set up to route 1 tele body, why not do 2?, when I'm set up to route 1 truss rod channel, why not do 4? It worked until I got to the finishing stage. As I have to spray outside I was at the mercy of the Northern British weather & ran out of time to get the 4 or 5 sprayed that I wanted (the white tele still needs lacquer). 

As soon as the weather improves I have that & another rear routed strat to spray. In the mean time I have my 1st commission build but I have a bit of time to get that finished - can't say too much the internet's walls have ears! It's nobody famous tho' ;). If you're curious just msg me.
