    My Albert Lee and a reggae band

    Hi
    Well after 42 years working for HMRC I've retired!

    I'm not missing the 6:15 am alarm that's for sure ... so now I have more time to spend on my DeLorean :-) and playing guitar. I have an audition tomorrow and have learnt 20+ numbers and reggae is not as easy as you may think.

    After practicing using a Fender Modern Jaguar with 2 MM 90's I decided to break out my all time favourite - the 2006 LEAL which has 3 MM90's and trem.

    Through my old '81 MM RD50 amp it sounds fantastic. Also ditching my fav pedals and usin an old Pod XT (Red Kidney Bean) and floorboard.

    Anyway - this 06 LEAL will never leave me - it plays amazing - and it will be nice to gig again - assuming I pass the audition :-)

    YAMAN, I sure wish you a happy retirement, enjoy it!

    I'm supposed to play some reggae on a carnival float in March... but I'm far too afraid to use my AL with all those drunks around! (I might be one of them...)

    Just bought an 80€ SUB... I'll let you know how it performs!
